What kind of game is Escape from Tarkov?
Escape from Tarkov is an FPS game in which players face each other and characters controlled by artificial intelligence (Scav) on different maps. The common goal of everyone is to “loot” as much as possible within a certain period of time and reach the exit points on the map without being killed, which is called a “raid”. (There are also tasks such as finding a certain item or eliminating a certain target.) Everyone who owns the game has many weapons, equipment and items in the main inventory (Stash), we take what we want from them when entering a raid. The most key detail of the game is that we lose everything above us when we die. That’s why Escape from Tarkov is the most tense FPS game on the market.
Will Escape From Tarkov come to Steam?
Escape from Tarkov can only be pre-ordered on its own site since its launch. It grew in popularity after bug fixes and a serious update in October 2019 and soon became the most viewed game on Twitch. Now many gamers are wondering when the game will be available for download on Steam as well. Will the game be released on Steam?
Although the game developer Battlestate has not commented on this for a long time, all signs indicate yes to the answer to this question. The game will also be playable on steam. However, the time issue will be directly proportional to the full version release date of the game.
Pavel Dyatlov had clearly stated in an interview that the game will be coming to Steam. “We will first publish the game on our platform and then launch it on Steam, that’s the plan,” Dyatlov said.
In addition, the following statement draws attention in the FAQ section on the official website of the game.
When will the game come out on Steam?
There is no official release date for the full version of the game, the game wants to switch to Steam after all the improvements and make more of its name to the world. It is currently only possible to comment for the Steam release date. It would not be wrong to expect the first quarter of 2021 for the game to exit the beta version after the improvements in 2019.
Will Escape from Tarkov come to Consoles PS, Xbox?
There is no official announcement that the game will be released for the console. Again, on the FAQ page of the game, an open-ended answer was given to a question about this. The arrival of the game for the console will not come as a surprise, it is still possible but not close.
As it is known, the game is being developed for the PC, even if it is a playable beta version. They will not go quickly to adapt it to the console while the development process continues. It seems that it will take at least 1 year after the full version for the game to come to consoles, and it seems likely that it will come to the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. It is very difficult to see the game on older generation consoles PS4 and Xbox One.
