Battlestate Games is announcing the start of the Escape from Tarkov fiction books’ series. The first book, titled the Predator (authored by Alexander Kontorovich) was published a month ago in Russian and is already available to players from Russia and former Soviet countries at the official website of the game. It tells the story of a regular system administrator who have challenged the dangerous world of Tarkov and eventually became a part of it.
“The events of the book let us dive deeper into the game setting and ambience, allowing to learn more about the place where the conflict is taking place, the events that triggered it and the people who became the victims of the circumstances and now strive to survive within the increasing chaos. The first book is mostly about Scavs”, - says Nikita Buyanov, the Battlestate Games COO. “We are already working with many authors and the series is going to be quite large.”
Also, the studio has started translating the book into other languages, including English, German, Polish and Chinese. The official translation of the Predator can be expected as early as March or April of 2018.
