The new Tekken 8 update 1.02.01 introduces a fix for one of the biggest problems with the game. Bandai Namco Studios keeps a keen eye over accounts that are misusing in-game features and has banned several accounts ahead of the EVO events on Tekken 7.

The issue involved players who were on their way to winning a ranked fight and were met with an error. This is because the opponents would turn off their internet connection and invalidate the ranked match. The developers have finally implemented fixes to counter Pluggers via this Tekken 8 update as per the patch notes.

Apart from this, the in-game characters have received a lot of rework from developers in this Tekken 8 update. Looking for more Gaming content? Here are the entire Tekken 8 Season 1 roadmap and the new Helldivers 2 Update Patch Notes for February 23.
