Globe 5G successfully tests console-less Tekken 7 fights
Can gamers now play Tekken 7 without consoles in the Philippines? Of course, Globe 5G has made that possible.
Over the years, the gaming industry made large progress. What started as simple simulations evolved into games with sophisticated and life-like graphics. Today, technology achieved another promising innovation. Globe succeeded with cloud gaming tests on its 5G mobile network.
This it did in partnership with Apper.ph. Globe enabled gamers to play graphics-heavy games without needing a console. And the telecom firm married cloud technology with 5G low latency and ultra fast speed.

The firm tested BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc’s Tekken 7 tournament.
Globe’s ultra fast 5G network played-out Tekken 7 with a jaw-dropping ultra-low latency. This allowed the gamers who tested the 5G tech to play the game with close to zero lags. The eSports community and avid fans prized this capability on their mobiles. This they do when playing multiplayer online battle games.
A fighting game, Tekken 7 constitutes the ninth overall installment in the Tekken 7 series. The plot focuses on the events leading up to the final battle between Heihachi Mishima and son Kasuya.
New features to the Tekken 7 gameplay include Rage Art, Power Crush, and Screw hits.
Globe first introduced a commercial 5G network with AirFiber in Southeast Asia. This development last year led to new and exciting innovations. Globe at Home subscribers will get to enjoy 5G technology.
The telecom firm introduced in February the first 5G mobile device in the country — the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G.
Expect more applications as Globe 5G rolls out to more areas and to more users. Gamers, in particular, will soon enjoy games based on augmented and virtual reality.
Globe 5G will change the way we play our favorite online or console-based games. This is also a leap to a lot of other possibilities that this technology can bring.

“The future is closer than ever,” said Coco Domingo. He is Globe’s Vice President for Strategic Platforms and Partnerships.
Globe Postpaid and Platinum customers only need a 5G-capable mobile phone, he added. Current Globe LTE SIM cards can also work with 5G and receive 5G signal.
Globe 5G is currently available in major commercial business districts in Metro Manila. Globe Postpaid and Platinum plans offer 5G enabled devices for as low as Plan1499. Expect this in Visayas and Mindanao soon.
