Bandai Namco has announced that Tekken 7’s first patch is now available, at least on PS4.

Appropriately titled Patch #1, the patch addresses a host of issues that are known to plague the PS4 version, including connection and stability issues. Additionally, the following player information will no longer be displayed before a match: character selected, wins, rank, and title. You can also now toggle voice chat on or off.

Below, you can check out the full — rather brief — patch notes:

1. The following player information will no longer be displayed before a match:

  • Character selected
  • Wins
  • Rank
  • Title

2. Connection with other players can be established more consistently

3. Improved Stability

  • Addition of ON/OFF feature for voice chat

  • ON/OFF for voice chat added to OPTION menu.

  • Set to OFF as default setting.

  • Nina’s Ivory Cutter attack properties.

According to Bandai Namco, a patch similar to this PS4 version will be released on PC and Xbox One. As of right now, there has been no mention of patching the load times, which are a irritability a bit too long, especially on Xbox One.

For those that don’t know: Tekken 7 recently released earlier this month on PS4, Xbox One, and PC: coming in as the 9th installment of the series. The game notably arrived on the scene back in March 2015 in Japan via an arcade release, before an updated arcade version, dubbed Tekken 7: Fated Retribution, was released in July 2016. Then Bandai Namco announced the game was releasing worldwide on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on June 2, 2017.  Tekken 7 also serves as the last chapter of Mishima clan saga.

Tekken 7 is available for $59.99 USD. You can check out review of it here. In other recent and related news, the game topped both last week’s Japanese retail sales’ chart and European retail sales’ chart.
