Tekken 7 1.02 patch: Small steps to increase online stability
It's no secret that Tekken 7's online play has been spotty since the game launched a week ago. Personally, I've only been able to connect to one random player out of the dozen or so I've tried.
Update 1.02 seeks to address the online play, along with a bevy of small changes. It should make it easier to connect to other players, first of all. Second, it won't show your opponent's profile stats before a match anymore, which may have been hurting the game's connection.
You can also toggle voice chat on or off, with it being set to off by default. Since voice chat is a scourge, this is a good call. The update is out now on PS4 and will come to Xbox One sometime during the week of June 12, according to GameSpot.
