What is a .TFC file?

A .TFC file is a special kind of computer file that is used by some video games to store pictures and designs that can be put onto 3D shapes in the game, making them look more real and interesting. These files are specifically used by games that are made with something called Unreal Engine 3, which is a tool that helps game developers create really detailed and complex games.

Think of a .TFC file like a box where the game keeps all its different stickers or skins that it can put on objects in the game world, like characters, buildings, or anything else that needs to look a certain way. This helps the game load and run faster because it can quickly grab these "stickers" from the .TFC file whenever it needs them.

Some popular games that use these .TFC files include "Batman: Arkham City," where you get to explore Gotham as Batman; "Rocket League," which is like soccer but with cars; and "Mass Effect 2" and "Mass Effect 3," which are big adventure games set in space. These games look really good and run smoothly in part because they use .TFC files to manage their textures.

If you ever need to open a .TFC file outside of the game (which is not something most players will need to do), you can use programs like the game itself (for example, "Rocket League" can open its own .TFC files), Epic Games' Unreal Engine (which is the tool used to make the game), Rocksteady Studios' "Batman: Arkham City" for the textures specific to that game, and Electronic Arts' "Mass Effect 2" and "Mass Effect 3" for those games' textures. However, opening these files usually requires some knowledge of game development or modding.


Our goal is to help people find the most up-to-date information about file extensions for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. We researched over 10,000 file extensions and their respective programs that open those files.
