Tekken Revolution update adding character customization, free-play practice mode and more

A sizable update to Namco Bandai's free-to-play PlayStation 3-exclusive fighter Tekken Revolution hits Europe on Wednesday, July 24 and North America by the "end of the month," so says the patch's massive breakdown on the game's official site.

After the update, players will be able to customize their characters with new costumes and "Premium Effects," though how either of these new features fit into the game's monetization model remains to be seen. Hwoarang and Dragunov will both be added as playable characters, bringing with them an increased level cap, new top rank and various gameplay balance changes.

New modes are also being added, including a Practice mode that doesn't require in-game currency, as well as two new difficulty levels for Arcade mode. Players will also have the ability to reassign their Character Enhancement Points, which up until now had been permanent modifications. Everyone gets one free do-over with their points, but further resets have to be purchased. (PS3, Tekken Revolution)

I love all the new content but Im ecstactic about the 5x gift points event, finally I can start unlocking more characters since they take forever with the average amount of gift points

I just need to unlock Lei and I'm good to rumble in the bronx.

I wish they'd let you choose who you unlock. I have about 20 k GP, and if I get Bryan at 30 k, I'm going to cry.

So far I've gotten lucky with Alisa and Steve.

Don't worry in the new arcade mode there is some special characters that appear at random 4 in total as far as I know & they give a ton of gift/exp points also arcade mode have 2 more difficult modes, Hard & Very Hard at Very Hard u get x2 the normal gift/exp & the fights r interesting because they don't just stand there for u to beat them to death, they fight back & they also have levels & extra points to Power/Endurance/Vigor & the level increase from fight to fight ;)

Havent owned a Tekken game since Tekken 2, played a bit of Tag, but this game has gotten me hooked on it. Will most likely purchase Tekken Tag Tournament 2 soon. I need to play Bruce.

You mean Lili? She's not really vampiric unless you make her that way with customization, lol.

I think he might mean that community created character from that contest recently.

Lily is free to play from the get go.

Hopefully there won't be as much spammers now that they can practice.Are the character unlocks still random? I'm at 24k and still can't get Steve.
HammadTheBeast  +   739d ago
30 k is when you will, Steve's bad ass, but he can't kick so his dodges are pretty interesting.
Free practice mode.

NOW I can see people getting into Tekken with this game. It's also a good mode to play while waiting for tokens to pop up.
