Tekken 8 Closed Network Test Will Allegedly Hog Over 13 GB Space On PS5

The closed network test will be available soon for select players.

Story Highlights

  • Tekken 8 closed network test will steal over 13 GB of space on the PS5, as reported by the PlayStation Game Size Twitter handle. The space requirement for Xbox consoles is currently unclear.
  • A total of 16 characters and 5 stages are coming to the closed network test for the game. July 21 to 24 is only reserved for PlayStation 5 players, while July 28 to July 31 is for all consoles and PC.
  • The closed network test will use the feedback of the players to improve the gameplay experience and squash all the bugs and glitches. The beta codes are already rolling out to some players.
  • The title comes out on PC, PS5, and the Xbox Series family. It is skipping the last-gen consoles to ensure hardware limits do not hold back the gameplay. No release date has been announced yet.

The prominent insider PlayStation Game Size on Twitter has recently shared the storage needed to download Tekken 8. The Twitter handle reports that the game will consume over 13 GB of space for the PlayStation 5. It is currently unclear whether the requirement iterated is the same for the Xbox consoles; the insider is dedicated to reporting the storage sizes for PlayStation games and likely only discusses the PS5 size here.

The Twitter page behind the rumor has previously announced the storage sizes of many prominent AAA releases in the past ahead of time and holds great credibility. We still suggest taking the new fable with a grain of salt until officially confirmed. 

Bandai Namco announced the Tekken 8 closed network test on June 9 for all three platforms, and it is divided into two durations. The first week, July 21 to 24, is only dedicated to PlayStation 5 players. The second week, July 28 to July 31, is for the Xbox Series family and PC gamers, but PS5 users can still participate without a hassle. The purpose of the beta is to fizzle out all the lingering bugs and glitches ahead of the official release.

We aim to obtain feedback on the quality of the network and gameplay. We would greatly appreciate it if all participants could provide feedback through an online survey that we plan to send out via email after the Closed Network Test,” mention the devs on the official page. 

As per Bandai Namco, the closed network test for the game will help devs polish the gameplay experience and changes to the battle system could be made by utilizing the opinion of the players. The users that have previously enrolled in the closed beta will be selected at random. Some gamers have already acquired a beta test code, and others are hoping to be chosen for the hardcore fighting experience.

Tekken 8 is slated for PC and the current-gen consoles, including the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X. Unfortunately, it is completely ditching the last generation. Nevertheless, excluding the last-gen may work out in favor of the game since it can fully explore the capabilities of the current console hardware without being held back. A release date is yet to be announced by Bandai Namco, but a 2024 arrival is imminent.
