Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore realistic story-driven online multiplayer game that combines features of FPS/TPS, combat simulation and RPG with MMO elements.
Players will assume the role of one of the mercenaries, the survivors of the initial stage of Tarkov conflict. After selecting one of the parties – USEC or BEAR – the player’s character begins his arduous journey in quest for ways of getting out of the city. All exits from Tarkov have been blocked by UN peacekeepers and Russian troops, all supply lines are cut off, and the link with the command is lost. In these conditions everyone has to make his own choices of what to do and how to get out of the chaos-ridden metropolis.
