Tekken 8 feature

Tekken 8 just got a mod that lets you enable UE5 Lumen

Modder KulaGGin just dropped an awesome mod for Tekken 8 on PC. This mod lets PC gamers turn on Unreal Engine 5’s Lumen ray tracing. In theory, this should make Global Illumination and Reflections look way better. So, this could be a must-have for anyone playing Tekken 8 on PC.

For those unaware, Tekken 8 will not be using Lumen by default. As such, I’m curious to see what this mod can achieve. Right now, the mod is only compatible with the game’s PC demo. Thus, I’m currently downloading it so that I can share some screenshots.

And here’s another cool thing. With this mod, you can unlock the framerate in Tekken 8 on PC. Normally, the game is locked at 60fps, but now you can change that. There’s also an interpolation setting for when using Framerate Unlocker to make the animations look even smoother. This could be a game-changer for some PC gamers.

But wait, there’s more. With this mod, you can turn off baked-in lighting, which is a setting you need to disable when you turn on Lumen. Lumen doesn’t need baked-in lighting. You can also choose to turn off the character lights and all the other lights. Oh, and here’s another cool feature. You can completely turn off upscaling, something you can’t do in the regular version of the game.

You can download the TekkenOverlay Mod from this link. As said, this mod is not yet compatible with the full/final version.

Since I’m a big Tekken fan, I’m curious to see whether this mod can make any major changes to the game’s lighting system. As I’ve said, the lighting of the demo/final version is nowhere close to what Bandai Namco initially showcased. So, this mod may become the best tool PC gamers can use to overhaul the game’s graphics.

Needless to say, when TekkenOverlay adds support for the final version, you should not use it while playing online. Chances are that you might get banned. So, better be safe than sorry.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
