Get a First Look at Tekken 8’s Tekken Fight Lounge in IGN First!
The long-awaited Tekken 8 is finally here and it packs plenty of new features for players to explore. One of the best new features is the Tekken Fight Lounge, which was recently unveiled in an exclusive IGN First preview that showed off some of the experience’s capabilities. The Tekken Fight Lounge is an arena of sorts where two players can have a match and wager “bling” on the fight, or just have a spectate and watch the bout.
The new mode features many of the same features as traditional fighting games, such as health meters, action commands, and other ways to finish off your opponent. The key difference in the Tekken Fight Lounge, however, lies in its betting system. Players have the option of wagering coins on the outcome of their match, and the winner will be awarded with the loot that they put up.
The betting system not only gives the Tekken Fight Lounge a unique twist, but also introduces a sense of risk and reward. Players can choose to go all out and put their winnings on the line, or play conservatively and bet a small amount for a safer return. Players can also opt to spectate fights and check out the competition without having to get involved in the betting system.
The Tekken Fight Lounge also features a newly-designed interface, which is used to view the player’s health, see the amount of coins at stake, and watch the matches unfold. The interface is designed to help keep players informed and engaged as they battle it out, and allow them to check all the necessary stats during a match.
Tekken 8’s arrival to the gaming world is sure to make a splash, and the addition of the Tekken Fight Lounge gives the series an extra boost. Be sure to check out the IGN First preview for more information on how the mode works and the betting system in action.
