Escape from Tarkov’s beta starts next month

Enough of this alpha business — it’s time for Escape from Tarkov to grow up and join the beta club. The team announced this week that starting some time in July, the multiplayer shooter will transition into its closed beta program.

“The closed beta will be available to owners of all pre-order editions, regardless of the purchase date,” the team posted. “On this stage, we will introduce major performance optimizations, several new features, and plenty of new content: the new Shoreline location, new weapon parts and modifications, new loot items, a new trader and much more.”

Some of the features of which this statement alludes to includes an insurance system, economic balancing, the MP5 submachine gun, optimization, a new version of Unity, weapon customization parts, and chat channels. The closed beta will cover four locations in total.

I watched people stream this ages ago. I thought it was released.

this game sadly ended up being alot less than the original promise of it. the maps are woefully small and it feels like yet another survivarium thing.

Really? I hated Survarium for being a, bugged, ugly, depressing chernobyl lie (I played it for being a shooter, the chernobyl post-apocalyptic aspect was depressing me an one of the reasons I quit).

If EFT is the same, then I wouldn’t feel bad if they fail, lying and promising things you can’t deliver only brings you bad karma, noobs.

i don’t think these devs ever lied about what the game is supposed to be like survarium exactly. they just never were clear about it.
