Tekken World Tour 2024 Announced — Dates, Dojos, Tournaments, Leaderboards

The Tekken World Tour 2024 was announced at the Tekken World Tour Finals over the weekend. Some interesting new details were also revealed, including some big upcoming tournaments and a new way to qualify for the Finals this year.

The crowd went nuts when the Tekken World Tour Finals shared the trailer for the Tekken World Tour 2024. The trailer showed top players in action and then went into some new information about what’s to come for the game’s esports scene.

Tekken World Tour 2024 New Details Revealed

The Tekken World Tour will now have two leaderboards — Global and Regional. The Regional leaderboard is based on points earned at Dojo Events in a player’s region. Their region must be selected at the start of the season and they can grind local events (Dojos) to reach the top of the leaderboard. Players at the top of their region’s leaderboard can qualify for a spot in the Tekken World Final 2024.

“Not everyone is a sponsored player who can fly around the world. Now you have a chance if you compete at local Dojos,” said Michael Murray.

Another big change is that there will now be offline events only. This was a change that had the crowd more than excited. No online tournaments will be part of the official 2024 circuit.
