Tekken 7 PC Update Ensures “Hackers Will Not Be Matched With Legit Players”

Bandai Namco has released a minor update for Tekken 7 on PC, which mostly includes a few bug-fixes and stability improvements.

Interestingly, it also highlights that the matchmaking system of the game has been adjusted to no longer pit hackers against legitimate players anymore. However, the patch notes do not provide any clarification to the change.

The developer could be referring to bots, through which players tend to amass in-game currency or free wins on the bottom rungs of the ladder. Either that or it is in reference to how the anti-tamper technology of Denuvo was cracked for Tekken 7 within days of its release.

A couple of weeks back, Bandai Namco released a security update to address the hack. It is possible that the latest update is simply following up with further adjustments.

The official patch notes are as follows:

  • Fixes an issue where the leaderboard only shows until the 97th rank and players can’t jump to their own ranking.
  • Fixes an issue where players can’t resume the game after minimizing the app’s Window.
  • Updates the matching version to ensure hackers will not be matched with legit users anymore.
  • Fixes Nina’s Ivory Cutter, Eddy’s rage arts and Miguel’s power crash move.
  • Fixes an issue where sometimes both controls are assigned to 1P in VERSUS battle.
  • Fixes an issue where the keyboard becomes unresponsive after reconnecting USB devices.
  • Fixes issues where customized Kazuya’s 3D model partially disappears.

Tekken 7 released last month to stellar reviews and is being hailed as one of the best installments in the series as well as one of the best fighting games in recent years. It is the first installment in the iconic fighting franchise to debut at the top spot in the retail charts of the United Kingdom in almost a decade.

Tekken 7 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
