Survival games have always been an interest of mine, though I’ve never been able to play one of the greats, such as DayZ, H1Z1, ARK: Survival Evolved, and the others. Division looks set to be good, but there is suddenly a new contender that may rival Division come release time.
Seemingly coming out of nowhere, Battlestate Games have announced their new game, known as Escape From Tarkov; an MMO shooter set in the fictional Russian city of Tarkov. Russian and American forces have trapped off all inside the city for mysterious reasons, and players are pushed into a war between two unnamed paramilitary groups, and tasked with putting the story together, leveling up, and surviving.
Battlestate have said that while they’re unsure whether it’ll be coming to consoles, they have stated that it’ll be PC first, and understandably with better graphics. They have also said that they’re considering VR support as an option, which only heightens the sudden hype. Not much else has been said on it, however.
Despite it being unknown to the general gaming community until very recently, Battlestate have already released several screenshots and even a gameplay video, and so far it looks like one to watch.
From what we’ve seen so far, the game looks incredibly beautiful, and seems set to contend with Division. Fingers crossed that it does come to consoles! We’ll be sure to update you on any new developments on the game.
