Today, we 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.
Moreover, we announce the start of the New Year holiday event, which will allow the game to be purchased with a 25% discount during the week, and some of the subscribers of the game website will receive a free 7-day access to the game (eligible for activation during the event, until January 4). 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.
At this point, users purchasing any game package get access to the Beta testing and can start playing immediately after purchase.
Please be advised that during the event and load testing the game servers may underperform in certain ways, e.g. matching wait time can be longer than usual, and other issues may occur as well. Thank you for understanding.
