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, 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.

- A list of characters you killed during session. If you kill a character and gather his dogtag, the player information will appear in the end-session kill list.
- Complete Shoreline location
- Peacemaker quests, new Skier quests
- New Mental category skills

- Now, when you drag an object onto the backpack, vest or container - it gets put into it automatically
- Visually adjusted melee weapon strikes

Escape from tarkov looks and feels much more realistic than Pubg, hopefully the full release will be a good one and SG servers will be up soon
