TEKKEN 7 PS4 Version 1.10 Improves Input Lag by 2 Frames

Bandai Namco and Team Harada should give themselves a pat on the back. The developers of TEKKEN 7 successfully worked around the Unreal Engine 4's added lag and improved input latency by roughly 2 frames. According to several input lag tests, the PS4 version's input lag has been decreased to 5.5 frames, down from 7.1. After playing about 20 matches online & offline after update 1.10, I can also personally confirm a major improvement to performance and online mode. Congrats and a big thanks to Harada & Company!

Good news PS4 TEKKEN 7 community... Great news, actually. Bandai Namco producer Motohiro Okubo confirmed they will be rolling out an update on Dec. 14th to reduce input lag specifically in the PS4 version of TEKKEN 7. If you're a casual player, you probably don't notice much input lag, but Bandai Namco has addressed the requests of hardcore players to further remedy input delay. This may or may not be the patch Harada mentioned at TWT 2017, as they are still working closely with Epic to reduce lag on Unreal Engine 4.  (Source: Motohiro Okubo)
