New MMO called Escape From Tarkov

16 posts in this topic

So i stumbled upon this game 

apparently it's a "hardcore narrative MMO mix of FPS/TPS and RPG genres.

an interesting mix.

The game is currently in closed beta and you can sign up from their website

http://www.escapefromtarkov.com/

Gameplay is revealed the 24th of november this year

Saw the name and had to look it up to confirm something.

 

So I played some game called "Contract Wars" a year or more ago.  I knew they were working on a game called Russia2028 and Contract Wars was their way to fund it.  Now I believe they are the same developers and this is the same project renamed since it just came out of nowhere.  Same city and about mercenaries in a post-apocalyptic environment.

 

Also USEC mercenaries which is in the Contract Wars and Russia2028 fictional world.

Oh and the devs of Contract Wars posted a countdown for it: http://www.kongregate.com/forums/2522-general/topics/559907-dev-escape-from-tarkov?page=1

 

Also one of the few pre-alpha footages of Russia 2028 and then it basically disappeared when they made Contract Wars.  I believe this was intended to be a single player skyrim-like game.

 

 

Edit: Confirmed same or similar devs. https://www.kongregate.com/forums/2522-general/topics/567036-dev-gameplay-reveal-of-eft

They just released some pre-alpha gameplay footage.  Also google doc of a translated interview: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1b9HLJMG8pb9Ow_S1AwvfoO6OUlj6j3wZwLz9eN-fS6g/edit?pli=1#

Cool that they added side mounted sights. For pre-alpha footage it looks pretty good (which feels like an understatement to me but I don't want to hype too much until there is more information).

Inventory and Looting Sneak Peek. I thought the map showing the building rooms was kind of unrealistic for this style until I realized the interior maps are pieces of paper glued on and one noticeably has writing of the room numbers on it. lol

 

Also I just noticed this area is the same area as a night version shown in the previous video at 4:02.

I've been following EFT since they announced it in Dec, and have also been on the forums regularly. It's too early to tell, but for being "pre-alpha" it looks pretty good. Closed-alpha is coming in Feb, and we should be seeing a closed beta soon after.

I'm a bit cautious about it now since they released pre-orders and let people pay for a closed alpha test.  But they just released a developer vlog showing off motion capture, multiple animations for each gun and animations in first and third person which look pretty good.  Also changing movement speed by holding ctrl + scroll wheel and changing crouch height by holding c + scroll wheel.  So a different system than the standard sprint key or single crouch position with sticking to covers and peeking over objects when aiming down sights.

 

Original video (subtitles and voiceovers coming soon)

 

English sub someone made.

English voiceover version.  I have to say the English sub someone else made before this was released was spot on so you can watch that instead if you prefer sub.

Also I didn't notice before but oculus rift support confirmed at 2:35? O.o https://youtu.be/TJfcaCmMy7c?t=2m35s

Yeah I'm going to wait just because this is their first game as a company even though they had people that worked together under a different company or worked on other games.

 

Also livestreams confirmed for Saturday: http://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/2902-long-anticipated-stream-announcement/

 

They just released another raw alpha gameplay footage.  For an alpha, it looks and sounds amazing.  They must have really polished up that specific stuff for presentation or something. lol

Things to note:

  • Apparently other people, maybe only the NPCs, will shout at you and it's not just edited in which I thought before to act as voice chat.
  • 0:32 (exactly 0:33 to 0:34) ricochet hit.
  • day/night cycles.
  • 1:46 windows don't break yet.

I honestly really want a solid single player campaign for this just because of the level of weapon customization made me smile. However it looks like that may not be the case. Here's hoping that we see other titles grab this level of detail for the future!

Almost forgot about the livestreams they had today.  This would be the first english livestream since they delayed the original one.

Devs made a little puzzle that no one has solved yet and you can win a limited edition preorder.
 http://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/topic/4003-strange-signal/?page=

They have made some in the past but I end up missing them and they get solved by the time I check.

The first string is Base64 with the username/password and you can type "help" in the terminal for a list of commands.  So if you're bored, like puzzles and have a few hours to spare, good luck. lol

edit: ok someone made a discord for it https://discordapp.com/channels/196997297471619072/196997297471619072  or https://discord.gg/CQAaH

I guess everyone is stuck and there are probably people that have already spent the whole day trying to solve it. lol

This is way out of my expertise. :(

A discussion of one of the old puzzles probably gives an idea what the devs have made. http://puzzling.stackexchange.com/questions/22972/what-secret-is-this-massive-technical-puzzle-hiding-riddles-and-data-puzzles

Oh I don't know then. lol Try this one? https://discord.gg/CQAaH

I think they expired though and not sure who is admin.

Both the Russian and English community is stuck though. XD

Okay we made another discord channel though it lacks the history of the previous one until whoever is admin comes back lol. https://discord.gg/usH7XAJ
