A new trailer has been released for Escape from Tarkov, introducing the changes coming to the game with update 0.12.
The update, which is the biggest yet for the game, introduces new graphics enhancement as well as new animations, which are made possible by the new version of Unity 2018.4.
New content and mechanics are also introduced in Escape from Tarkov in the new update. You can find details on some of them below.
Along with the addition of a large number of new game mechanics and content, we transferred the project to the new version of Unity 2018.4, carried out serious work to optimize the network and server components, fixed a significant part of the bugs and issues, stabilized and improved the state of the project. Particularly noteworthy are the new third-person animations, as well as the effects of full-screen anti-aliasing TAA (Temporal Anti-Aliasing). These and other features allowed to significantly modify the graphics component.
One of the main innovations of the upcoming patch will be the Hideout, a special game location, a safe place where the player will return to after each raid to treat and restore the basic characteristics of his character.
The regeneration rate will be directly related to the internal management of the Hideout: the construction and improvement of various zones, the creation and use of consumables for everyday life. Here, the player can increase the size of his stash, create first-aid kits and cartridges, as well as organize a full-fledged shooting gallery for training, use food, water, and medicine, build a bitcoin farm and much more. The functionality of the hideout will be supplemented and improved over time.
A new location “Reserve” has been added to the game, a secret military base of RosReserv, which, according to legends, contains a long-term supply of provisions, medicines, and resources in the event of total nuclear war. Located near the “Factory”, the Reserve will become the largest location in the game in terms of explorable area. The territory of the military base is surrounded by minefields, snipers and is controlled by the scav boss Glukhar and his squad. This grouping in battle uses special tactics, they often wear heavy bulletproof vests and helmets and use all available weapons including the NSV Utes stationary machine gun and the AGS-30 automatic grenade launcher, that are located on the map. You can leave the Reserve in various ways, for example, through the sewer hatch, on an armored train or by entering the bunker.
Escape from Tarkov is now available on PC.
