So the devs for the upcoming "Escape from Tarkov" game have now announced the date the game will finally be released into an open alpha stage of development so we can get our grubby hands on it and give it a go.
This is taken from their website ...
Dear friends, today we have conducted an ultimate analysis of the expected alpha testing launch of Escape from Tarkov and are now ready to disclose the date of launch.
The most important point of the early testing is the solid base that will be added to the game in the coming days and will make it to the Alpha - and, ultimately, serve as a steady foundation to Escape from Tarkov.
Opening access to whatever we have now, "as is", in our opinion, does not serve any purpose. Alpha testing should not only polish the project and add content, but thoroughly balance and flesh out the details of game mechanics.
This is why we have formed a perfectly clear vision of what alpha testing should include - the version of the game where we could solve all of these tasks together!
We hereby announce the start of Escape from Tarkov alpha testing for August 4.
In the time remaining to the launch of the tests we are going to reveal several new game features in form of videos or streams, so stay tuned!
