Bandai Namco Warns Players Not to Continue Playing Tekken 8 Cracked Beta

Bandai Namco has issued a warning to players regarding the Tekken 8 cracked beta, which was illegally copied from the Closed Network Test. The closed network test for the upcoming fighting game took place over the weekend on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and S, and PC, allowing players to preview the game's features and gameplay.

Unfortunately, the closed network test was hacked, resulting in the circulation of a cracked beta version of Tekken 8. This unauthorized version allows users to continue playing the game even after the test has ended. Bandai Namco has become aware of this issue and wants to caution players against downloading and playing this pirated version.

In response to the situation, Bandai Namco took to Twitter to remind players that such actions are in direct violation of their terms of service and the Tekken World Tour code of conduct. They have declared that unauthorized downloads or distribution of the game is illegal and have threatened to ban individuals caught playing the cracked beta from participating in official tournaments, including the Tekken World Tour.

The concern lies in the possibility that players using the cracked beta may gain an unfair advantage by continuously playing the training mode. This is similar to what occurred during the Street Fighter 6 Closed Network Test, where players found ways to extend their playtime beyond the designated period.

Bandai Namco emphasizes the importance of fairness and competitive integrity in their tournaments and expresses gratitude for players' cooperation in upholding these values. They urge players to respect their terms of service and refrain from playing the Tekken 8 cracked beta beyond the designated period.
