Tekken 7 version 5.00 patch notes released

Patch notes for Tekken 7 version 5.00 have been released. The patch is said to already be ready to download by booting up Tekken 7.

Version 5.00 for Tekken 7 is mostly aimed at character balance as there are only universal changes implemented for the wall crush mechanic. Now every fighter will have moves that either cause "wall crush inducing hit" or "wall crush inducing guard" statuses.

According to the patch notes, characters will be able to guard after being wall crushed, but they'll still be at a big disadvantage. Instead of guaranteed combos, a 50/50 mix up will probably be the reward in most of these wall crush scenarios.

Although there are plenty of characters that only received one or two adjustments, there are a few that received a lot more attention. Fighters like Jack-7, Asuka, Leo, Lucky Chloe, Eddy, Leroy, Fahkumram, Kunimitsu, Lidia, and a few others have a longer than average list of changes.

Having said that, all 51 characters in Tekken 7 have received at least one change in this patch. We'll just have to see how this affects the meta and everyone's tier lists for the game.

With that "tease" likely hinting at Tekken 8, this is expected to be Tekken 7's final patch. You can check out all the patch notes below:
