The EGX 2016 event will be holding a Tekken 7 tournament later this year. It will be a good chance for you to try out the new roster.

EGX announced on its website: “The eagerly anticipated Tekken 7 will be showcased in a tournament setting with visitors able to play the latest instalment of this amazing fighting game series due for release next year. The roster of over 30 characters also includes guest fighter Akuma, famous from the Street Fighter series.”

It’s worth mentioning EGX will be getting the newer Fated Retribution build. Unlike the vanilla release of the game, you will get to play as the newer characters and experience the gameplay updates that have been made.

You still have to wait until early 2017 to play the game at home on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It’s rumored the game will be out in the month of February. The beginning of the year is usually when fighting games come out as Street Fighter V was also released in February.

If you want to play Tekken 7 and live in the UK, the EGX 2016 event happens at The Nec in Birmingham. The event runs from September 22nd until September 25th.
