Quote:
Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore and realistic online first-person action RPG/Simulator with MMO features and a story-driven walkthrough.

With each passing day the situation in the Norvinsk region grows more and more complicated. Incessant warfare in Tarkov has sparked massive panic; the local population has fled the city, but those who stayed are looking to improve their fortunes at the expense of others. Having accepted the new reality, savage Tarkov locals - "Scavs" flocked into well-armed gangs and started the redivision of the city. Nowadays, Tarkov is separated by unseen borders, controlled by different groups. Gain-greedy gunmen would go to any length to have their way, including the murder of civilians and direct confrontation with the two private military companies.

The players will have to experience living in the skin of one of the mercenaries who survived the initial stage of the Tarkov conflict. After choosing one of the sides – USEC or BEAR – the player’s character starts to make his way out of the city. Tarkov is sealed off by UN and Russian military, supply chains are cut, communication with operational command is lost, and in these conditions everyone has to make his own choices of what to do and how to get out of the chaos-ridden metropolis.

I have personally Preordered the Game due to the 30% Discount code for Black Friday

After reading through the forums, it appears that some have already begun testing the Game in Alpha. A closed beta will be in the near future, a couple weeks (??) and as such will be great to test out with the crew over at the Forums.

Announcement from the DEVS
Quote:
In a few days, as soon as the networking aspects are updated, we plan to give the Extended Alpha access to the owners of the following pre-order packages:

1st wave: "Prepare For Escape" - 25% of those who don’t have the access yet.
2nd wave: "Prepare For Escape" - 25 more percents of those who don’t have the access yet.
3rd wave: "Left Behind" - 25% of those who don’t have the access yet.
The Escape from Tarkov testing continues, and the future will bring more discoveries, locations and mechanics. Stay on board!


ATTENTION, please!

NDA is continuing to act! We will post a separate notice about NDA lift.

The transition to the extended alpha has not yet taken place. This will happen in a few days.

Really hoping to get a key here to test and load up this game!

The game itself looks interesting from the videos I've seen, what really attracts me is the way everything is supposed to playout ingame though. I'm always cautious about these kind of games though, as there is a possibility this might be a huge flop. I'm gonna skip the pre-order and see how the game develops as time goes on, I like to wait until the time is right to make a purchase. redface.gif

I understand your reservations, I preordered it purely due to the fact that I would just love to walk around and scavenge in this world that they have created.

Nice to See you Silent, didn't realize you were in here with me. Lol. For a while I thought I was the only one.

I thought I would get a beta key, but no. Anxiously awaiting this game as well. thumb.gif

Hah, yes I think this one has swooped under the radar, maybe because people are sick of open world survival games at this point being disappointing, but this one looks to have potential

A lot of potential, as in you can just roam around as long as you wish and scavenge. That's what I like about it.
