Escape from Tarkov Testing Plans

Battlestate Games announces they are conducting load testing for Escape from Tarkov as they gear up for an open beta for this "hardcore realistic story-driven online multiplayer game that combines features of FPS/TPS, combat simulation and RPG with MMO elements." This post discusses plans, and includes details on a new year event that will include free access to some of those who are registered on the game's official website. Those who pre-purchase the game will get beta access, and they also plan an open beta next year. Here are the details:

Battlestate Games kick off the load testing of the Escape from Tarkov game servers before the official start of the Open Beta testing at the beginning of 2018. Also the studio starts a holiday event which will allow the game to be purchased with a 25% discount during the week, and some of the users will receive a free 7-day access to the game. A full description of the event, participation requirements and instructions for redeeming the gift can be found on the project website in the news section of https://www.escapefromtarkov.com/news/id/90 .

Moreover developers released the last update of the game in 2017. This version of the game introduces the complete Shoreline map along with new weapons and weapon modifications, including AKMS, AKMN, Gyurza pistol and Trijicon REAP-IR thermal sight, as well as new equipment like customizable Ops-Core helmets. Moreover, several gameplay systems have been seriously redesigned, most importantly, deployment and extraction system, weapon mastering and dynamic changing of its size. Other notable changes include customization of helmets and head gear slots. The end of the Raid screen now features the opportunity to view the list of characters killed during the game session. Furthermore, players can now take dogtags off deceased enemies, which contain info on nickname, level and PMC affiliation. The complete list of new developments and changes can be found on the official project Forum and in social network communities.

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 .

I've had it since pre-alpha.. it doesn't seem like it's changed a ton.

It's VERY hardcore, and severely punishing/unforgiving.

Taking a serious loadout or modifying a weapon with multiple attachments requires a lot of specific weapon modding/parts (rails etc). Even a pistol is highly lethal. Per-limb damage/injury system. Scroll wheel to change your movement speed (affecting sound). Very easy to lose everything that you take with you in a match as well (plus you can't just quit a match, you have to extract, or you lose it all).

Not for the faint of heart. It's cool, it's scary and it's intense. Also server issues, and I'm also having framerate stability issues, but it's very playable.

I'd say you have to be serious and enthusiastic about military simulators as well as something like DayZ. I might have one extra 7-day code to give out, but I'll have to check with my friends first.
