Tekken 8 has definitely stepped up its particle effect game by moving up to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, but if you think they’re overwhelming, you may want to see this.
Some players of the Tekken 8 closed beta test have shared footage of a pretty funny glitch that basically turns every particle into an explosion.
As can be seen in the clips, every strike, ground bounce and pretty much everything else turns the glow / lighting on particles up to like 12/10 and can make things pretty incomprehensible.
It pretty much becomes impossible to see anything on the screen when Rage activates or when the KO happens, but at least at that point, the round is already over.
According to the Tekken subreddit, this bug appears to be caused under certain situations after a wall / balcony break on the hangar stage though we don’t really know the exact cause — and can no longer test it.
I don’t suppose you also came across any of the crazy visual bugs too ha?

Since this was just a beta test for a game that’s still three months away from releasing, this will almost assuredly be fixed before then, but it’s still interesting to see these hiccups happen during development.
It kinda looks cool too and makes us wish they’d turn it into a special mode.
