New Year Event in Escape from Tarkov

We announce the final stage of the technical preparations for the Open Beta Testing of Escape from Tarkov. Thuswise, starting December 28 and over a few weeks, we'll conduct load testing of game servers in order to adjust processing for a large number of new players at the start of the OBT in the beginning of 2018.

For this purpose, we have planned a New Year event, which will give free access to the game to a part of users who are registered on the official website of the project (www.escapefromtarkov.com/registration), but are not playing yet. 7-day access to the game will be granted to a part of the players, who will be picked  randomly among the total number of subscribers, with bias for those who have been registered earlier.

Within a week after the event launch, the game will be available for purchase with a 25% discount, which is effective for all types of transactions (purchases, package upgrades and gifts).

Moreover, every user who has already purchased access to the game or bought the game during the 7 days of event, is guaranteed to receive additional game gear with ability to restore it within 6 months after each profile wipe, including manual one.

Along with that, players who have joined the testing before the launch of Closed Beta (July 28, 2017), will also receive:

- Two 7-day access keys and the opportunity to share them with friends during the week.

Players who have preordered the game prior to the Alpha Test (August 5, 2016), additionally receive:
- Promo code for the Standard Edition of the game
- and two 7-day access keys and the opportunity to share them with friends during the week.

Also, we announce that forthcoming updates, which will be released before the end of the year, will include the full version of the Shoreline map, new weapons and items, as well as new features such as the new spawn and extraction system, dynamic weapon size change, helmet customization system and improved headwear slots, redesigned system of weapon mastering, dogtags and other features, which will be explained in more detail in the near future.

In the early 2018, with launch of OBT, the game will be further expanded with advanced game mechanics, and some of the existing ones will be redesigned. Moreover, players shall expect further optimization of the graphics and network components, as well as the new Interchange location and additional game content.

At this point, users purchasing any game package get access to the Beta testing and can start playing immediately after purchase.

Learn more about the project testing plans and the estimated completion time frame, and purchase the game on the official website of the project https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/preorder-page.

What exactly does that mean?

My guess is extra gear that will survive a wipe or reset but only for six months after the event.

The Reap IR Thermal Scope - Coming to Tarkov

Hello, Escapers,

We now present to you, screenshots and gif of a new upcoming thermal scope Reap IR. It will cost about 1,000,000 ingame roubles and it will have limited working distance. Time to take down your enemies with a superior tactical scope. They can run but they can't hide.

All of the screenshots

I would prefer to have to sit next to one of the PCs and charge with a USB cable for half an hour.

That's why they put the hand signals in: so you can wave at the scavs to stop shooting while you take out your screwdriver and pop in a few more flat cells.

Sad, another dev team that won't learn from other games. Games with thermal make me cringe. Battlefield, DayZ, Ghost Recon Wildlands. Doesn't matter which, it upends the game play that exists. It takes fun combat relying on skill, a little bit of gear and tactics, and comes in with a sledgehammer to break it down. They can pretend there will be distance limitations or cite a 1mil price tag (which people are easily making), but when most fights are occurring close/mid range, or certain areas are hot spots (which now limits those fights again to more close/mid range) it's going to be an insanely effective tool which will change combat. 

Not a fan. You currently had the better player with worse gear, still being able to over power the better equipped, worse player. Adding thermal pretty much nulls that to a certain extent and that's sad to see. Really hits hard at those who enjoyed using the environment on Shoreline or Woods to their advantage.

Sad stuff for me. Oh well.

Maybe if they implement not only very expensive,but also a limited number in the whole game. For instance those 60 round ak magazines were a very limited production run, that were dropped due to problems. Realistically there would only be maybe a few hundred total. Likewise with thermal scopes there wouldn't be a billion within tarkov for everyone to have one.
