From what we know so far, Bandai Namco will be releasing four DLC characters each year. Tekken 8’s Deluxe Edition and Ultimate Edition come with a 1-year character pass, which will automatically unlock all DLC characters released for up to a year. The upcoming fighting game’s Standard Edition users will have to purchase each DLC character separately or purchase the character pass when it becomes available.
