Tekken 8 Demo PS5

Tekken 8 will be getting a playable demo on PS5 this week, Bandai Namco has announced. Releasing at 8am GMT on the 14th December — a full week before it's available on Xbox and PC — the demo will include limited versions of Story Mode, Arcade Quest, offline Versus, and Gallery. Still, this sounds like a robust demo, and something that Tekken fans will definitely want to check out.

We're also going to assume that the full character roster won't be available. When Bandai Namco releases more information, we'll be sure to update this article.

With Tekken 8 releasing next month on the 26th January, the demo should present a perfect opportunity to get stuck in before launch. Even better, if your favourite characters happen to be included, you can start practicing your combos well in advance.
