Hello, Escapers!

We have heard the pleas of our Asian community and as we strive to build our network across the globe, we have officially opened the Asia Servers. This is great news for all of us, as this will help to lighten the load as we can now give our Asian brothers and sisters a home of their very own.

Art of trader "Peacekeeper"

A merchant named Tadeusz Pilsudski (aka Peacekeeper) settled in the border zone, buying up everything that was more or less valuable which he exports. His distribution of local Western weapons, ammunition and some of the military equipment hasn't gone unnoticed. He speaks fluent Russian and is restrained and terse. Conducts a lot of different operations, often working from the shadows, using his people and UNTAR contingent resources.

Escape from Tarkov Development Diary

 

Hello Escapers, 

Today we would like to tell you about the current stage in development of Escape from Tarkov.   The efforts of the team in the near future will be predominantly focused on solving issues and bugs, which requires careful work and utmost attention. The EFT project has advanced beyond the Beta barrier and its development now enters a new active phase. While collecting information from community support, as well as observing the activity of streamers and bloggers, we have decided to give up the planned update that was scheduled for release at the end of September, and take the time to resolve the major issues players are facing.   In other words, we have decided to raise the priority of tasks that deal with performance problems and fix old and serious bugs, completely relying on working with community. At the moment, we have done many things that were not planned to be included into patch that was scheduled for release by the end of September. For instance, we’ve fixed problems with sound effects  modified damage system for destroyed body parts, improved character movement physics, enhanced network synchronization and fixed matchmaker issues, made balancing changes in the player spawn system, loot, trading system, introduced various optimizing changes, including use of the RAM, made adjustments aimed at improving the gameplay quality and much more.   Beside all that, we continue to add new features and content. In the next few updates, look forward to blind-fire functionality, buttstock handling, snaplights and underbarrel grenade launcher. Moreover, we plan to add a new set of weapon attachments, AKM, a new trader, equipment, items, and quests. Also, the second part of the Shoreline location is now in the final stage of production, and there is a new location already in active development - Interchange with large shopping mall.

The main objective of the Escape from Tarkov developer team is to implement  the gameplay as designed and to ensure its high quality not only in visual aspects, but also in terms of optimizing the performance and accuracy of network operation. Needless to say, we also haven't forgotten about cheaters, detecting and banning them on daily basis now. At the moment, about 1400 dishonest players were permanently banned by the in-game anticheat software.

The next major stage for us will be the start of the Open Beta. Soon, we’ll reveal a more detailed description of what it is going to include.

Escape from Tarkov is a high realistic hardcore FPS with a steep learning curve. Read the guide from Gamestar.de what you should know before you are getting started.

Thanks for translation of the article to EfT Emissary Patrick Artucov aka @hakunamavodkatv !

The developer studio, Battlestate Games brings with “Escape from Tarkov” a survival FPS fans of realistic gameplay, high detailed weapons and mods. This Early-Access title is actually in a closed Beta phase and is available in different pre-order editions. For the most important questions read our FAQ.

Compared to other games, realism is particularly expressed in the absence of HUD elements and a complex motion control. You also have no visual aid to mark a target or enemies. An overlay for health and ammunition is also missing.

The classic WASD control for movement is extended by numerous features, for example side-leaning (ALT+A/D) or sideway steps (ALT+Q/E).

The Cheater Battle Wages On!

Good Day, Escapers! The outcry has not gone unheard. Our every wish is to keep cheaters on the run, never giving them a moment to rest. Let their black hearts pound with every kill they make, knowing, it may be their last. You will not hear us coming, you will not see our hand, but you will feel the hammer. We are pleased to announce that over 400 cheaters have met their end in Tarkov.  Give these poor souls a round of applause, and bid them good riddance! You will never again bask in the warm sun of Tarkov. Let us prostrate ourselves before the mighty BSG, in thanks for their righteous judgment!

Escape from Tarkov conquering Mt. Elbrus!

The Escape from Tarkov banner was on the highest summit of Russia and Europe - Mt. Elbrus! The ascent was performed by a Polish mountineer tommag1982, a dedicated fan of the Battlestates Games' hardcore shooter. The event has been staged by Polish Emissaries and players of Escape from Tarkov.

The height of the west summit of Elbrus is 5,642 metres (18,510 ft).  Its saddle (5416 m high) houses the Europe's highest mountain lodge.

Main dangers of Elbrus are glacier crevasses and unpredictable weather that could change over just a few hours. Rapid drop in temperature and visibility poses a risk of hypothermia and loss of direction.

However, the mountineer has already successsfully completed the climb and placed the game banner on the summit. We present to your attention a photos of the bold player of Escape from Tarkov!
