A demo for Tekken 8 gets a release date. I also discuss The Day Before studio shutting down, and E3 is officially cancelled forever.

E3 Is Gone For Good: The End of an Era

E3 will not be returning, marking the end of an era for the iconic gaming convention. As a seasoned gamer, I've witnessed firsthand the evolution of E3. However, its struggle to remain relevant post-pandemic and the rise of competing events like Geoff Keighley's Summer Game Fest have rendered E3 obsolete. This development, as detailed in Video Games Chronicle's comprehensive report, raises questions about the future of gaming conventions and how the industry will adapt to this significant change.

The Day Before: A Studio's Closure and a Game's Demise

The Day Before studio has announced its shutdown mere days following the game's troubled launch. This news, as shared in Video Games Chronicle's article and through Fntastic's official Twitter announcement, is a stark reminder of the volatile nature of the gaming industry. The commitment of the game's publisher, expressed in Mytona's Twitter statement, to refund players demonstrates a rare sense of responsibility in the industry. For fans of open-world zombie survival MMOs, the long-running DayZ remains a viable alternative.

Tekken 8 Demo Release: A Fighter's Anticipation

Tekken 8's demo release date is set, exciting fans of the storied fighting game series. The demo will be available on PlayStation 5 from December 14, 2023, followed by releases on Xbox Series X|S and PC on December 21, 2023, as announced on Tekken's official Twitter page. This offers a unique opportunity for fans and newcomers alike to experience Tekken 8 ahead of its official release on January 26, 2024. As a fighter game enthusiast, I eagerly anticipate the new features and enhancements Tekken 8 will bring to the genre.
