Prep for the apocalypse with Escape From Tarkov’s hideouts
Some people seem to want the apocalypse to happen because they have a really sweet underground bunker that is ready for a test drive. For the rest of us, the closest we might get is Escape From Tarkov’s new Hideouts, which will at least entertain us with the fantasy of our own shelter while the world crumbles around us.
The team announced its player housing system last week, saying, “Our characters need some place to settle down to gain strength, store supplies, stash discovered gear and weapons. In other words, regroup before setting out to achieve the main goal of the game.”
Players will move into an abandoned bomb shelter and work to rebuild it into a functional underground headquarters. There are 13 modules that can be constructed, from bathrooms to medical facilities, and each will bestow a special bonus on characters.
A follow-up Q&A post cleared up some of the finer details about this newly announced system.
