How To Sign Up For The Tekken 8 Closed Network Test

The year 2023 is the year for fighting games, and from what it looks like, Tekken 8 will be the last major fighting game coming out this year. We have gotten a lot of information about Tekken 8 over the past couple of months, but we do not know the release date yet.

However, we do know that we are getting closer and closer to Tekken 8 launch. Soon, there will be another beta for Tekken 8. This time around, Tekken 8 will soon have the Closed Network Test (CNT). Server tests are great because it allows players to check out games before they officially launch. Here, we are going to go over everything you need to know about the Tekken 8 CNT.

Tekken 8 will hopefully launch before the end of 2023, so there is quite sometime before everyone can play the game. If you want to experience Tekken 8 as soon as possible, participating in the CNT is the way to go. To get into the CNT, interested players will have to sign up on the registration website.

On the website, you will have to choose your platform and give them your email address. Then you will also have to answer some questions about your region, your highest online rank in Tekken 7, and if you participated in the closed alpha test for Tekken 8. It is unclear right now how each question will affect your application at the moment, so it is better to answer honestly. Developers will probably want a good mix of players in the CNT.

When Does The Tekken 8 CNT Start?

Players can sign up for the Tekken 8 CNT right now. Thankfully, it looks like there is a long sign-up period, so there can be plenty of chances to actually get in the CNT. The CNT will actually start in late July. There are going to be two different CNT periods that players can participate in, so there are two chances to get in.

The first period is from July 21st until July 24th. The first CNT session is for PlayStation 5 players only. The second CNT period starts on July 28th and lasts until July 31st. This will be for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam. So if you are planning to participate and you do not have a PS5, you will have to wait until the second CNT time period.
