Tekken 7 Will Be Coming To Xbox One

Despite rumors and suggestions that Tekken 7 will only release on the PlayStation 4 platform, it’s been confirmed that the video game will also see a launch on the Xbox One and PC. This confirmation was spotted at Xbox One UK.

Recently, the MCM London Comic Con was held and within the event Bandai Namco Entertainment happened to be present. Thanks to a user on Twitter that goes by @Supernintendo, we’re finding out that Tekken 7 will not see a release strictly on the PlayStation 4 platform.

According to a Bandai Namco representative, the upcoming beloved fighting franchise installment will see a release on the Xbox One and PC. This is after rumors suggested the fighting franchise has become a PlayStation 4 exclusive.

Unfortunately, there was no word on when the video game will be launching in the west. So far, Tekken 7 is only available within arcades in Japan. As for the storyline for Tekken 7, the game is said to have taken a darker approach that resembles a tone closer to Tekken 4. Likewise, this will show the conclusion of the Mishima clan saga.

While we wait on the official release date for Tekken 7, take a look at the game trailer posted above and some game screenshots in the gallery below.

Witcher 3: Blood & Wine – DLC-Exclusive Mutations Guide

Witcher3DLC1

Adapt to the Duchy of Toussaint with new mutations in the Blood and Wine expansion to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. These powerful abilities provide Geralt special combat bonuses, like a buff that increases damage dependent on the number of enemies you’re facing, or one powerful skill that revives a downed Geralt with full health every three minutes.

Mutations come in three categories; combat, sign, and alchemy. Unlocking mutations costs a crafting material called mutagen, and always requires a pair of two ability points to research. These twelve character upgrades are only unlocked after completing a side quest available early in Blood and Wine. Learn all about mutations — how to unlock them and their bonus effects — with the full guide below.


DLC-Exclusive Mutations

Blood and Wine includes 12 new mutations. Mutations are ability upgrades that are unlocked through the use of mutagens and ability points.

  • How to Unlock Blood and Wine Mutagens:
    • Complete the Side Quest “Turn and Face the Strange”
    • This quest becomes available after completing the Main Quest “Blood Run”
    • While exploring the city of Beauclair in Toussaint, a messenger will deliver a letter to Geralt.
    • This unlocks the Side Quest and leads you to a cemetery that eventually reveals a Witcher researcher that is studying new mutations.

Complete these steps and the DLC-exclusive mutations will become available. Blood and Wine also pushes the level cap up to 100, so you should have plenty of chances to earn ability points and unlock these mutations.

How to get The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine Started

The Summer is upon us, which means it is time for Geralt of Rivia to travel to new and distant places. The land of love and wine has fallen under a terrible shadow, and only the Witcher can save the Duchy and its people. With other ninety new quests to tackle, and over twenty new enemies to slay, it can be pretty confusing when you try to sit down and figure out where you need to go to get everything started. This guide will take out all the guess work, and point you in the right direction so you can get Geralt’s next adventure rolling.

The first step to getting the new expansion started is to find yourself a Notice Board in the Velen area. We suggest heading to the one in the screenshot below, mostly because it’s a pretty straight shot to your next destination. This will start the Envoys, Wineboys questline.

The next step is to read the notice left by the Knights of Toussaint. It is titled Appeal to Sir Geralt of Rivia, the Bridge his Crest. Once you’ve taken the notice, go ahead and read it. This will update your map marker with a new waypoint at the village of Holloway. Travel there and approach the area knights as they speak to the villagers.

Now you just need to make your way through the coming cutscenes and dialogue. You’ll have an option to deal with some bandits, or just leave them so others worse don’t fill their place, so do as you please there to continue the quest. You’ll also have the option to go ahead and travel to Toussaint, or stick around in the Northern Realms to take care of some more things. Don’t worry if you haven’t finished up the main questline, or any of the other tidbits from the base game and Hearts of Stone, you’ll be able to easily travel back and forth between Toussaint and the Northern Realms using the World Map, just as you did in the base game.

After a bit of conversation, a few cutscenes, and possibly the death of a dozen or so bandits, Geralt and his new friends will head off for the land of love and wine, which will start up a whole field of new troubles for our Witcher friend.

Can’t get enough Witcher 3? Check out the first full hour of gameplay from the new expansion pack below.

There are a lot of new things to discover in the land of Toussaint. Don’t miss out on learning how to dye your armor, as well as the locations of all the new Grandmaster gear sets that were introduced in this expansion.
