    This looks okay but first thing I thought was they need to fix the FOV! Sound effects are awesome though and could be one to look out for in the future.

    I wonder how much that will stress our graphics cards. Looks good, so one to keep an eye on.

    Looks great and sounds awesome!

    One thing that just clicked we have so many games where you can shoot leaning from corners. Why is it every game you have to strafe out to lob a grenade :eek:.

    Some guys have been doing some digging on MHQ and they have discovered that this is a reskin of an old game which has the same assets, music called Russia 2028. The video is pre-alpha that was published in 2012. They believe that Escape from Tarkov will be using Unity not Cry Engine.



    The same devs then made a pre-equal to Russia 2028 called Contact Wars



    So this leaves open some questions, what happened in 3 years? Is this a reskin/rebrand of 2028? Also we all know that Russians love Microstransactions so will this game feature it?

    Russian early access?

    Never heard a bigger alarm bell in all my life.

    The setting really reminds me of Stalker/ Metro. Apparently some of the devs used to work at GSC Game World so that probably explains it. Graphics are beautiful.

    Stupid stuff that gives people an advantage straight from the off.

    Initially good standings with all in-game traders
    Even more cash at the start
    Huge size of stash (10x60)
    Bonus equipment at start

    Take a look! http://www.escapefromtarkov.com/preorder-page

    Not want you want from a "RPG/Simulator with MMO".

    I was excited about it too at the start but the more this game develops the more uninterested I get.

    On Dec 30th they put up their pre-order page and despite their attempts to calm the storm they are failing. It's so typical of Russian developers, in a country where hacking is rife it becomes more feasible to develop a p2w/micro-transaction game instead.

    Check out the pre-order page. 4 Different levels of "Early Access" type incentives.

    Despite denying that the game will have no microtransactions the pre-order bonus/incentive ******** strikes again. For a developer that is generally unknown they should have either gone early access or kickstarter.

    Game just looks like a glorified DayZ without the Zombies. I'll keep an eye on it though as they are active in answering community questions/concerns over on their FB page. Don't ever expect me to pay for Alpha or Beta access. Encouraging this act is not good for consumers or the gaming industry.
