Escape From Tarkov’s 0.12.1 Preliminary Patch Notes Revealed

As you know, Battlestate Games released the most significant update in Tarkov’s history. The patch titled 0.12 not only took the game on a more improved version of the Unity engine but also added a lot of new additions to the game. Being a huge update, it had a lot of surprises but also difficulties in which BSG is still figuring out proper addresses. That’s why the game is heading towards its next big update, labeled as 0.12.1.

As we have heard, Escape From Tarkov’s 0.12.1 is scheduled to release tomorrow and welcome a huge amount of variations, that in the end will contribute to a better gameplay experience.

In that regard, the developers have released a brand new update that will address a lot of known issues. Some of them connected to the new Weapon Presets bug, which denied you to buy all of the items and assemble the complete loadout, Scavs behavior, bug fixes, and lot more. Overall, the 0.12.1 is expected to be the full polisher of 0.12.

Furthermore, there was a podcast hosted by Shroud on Mixer featuring Nikita, the CEO of Battlestate Games, which confirmed their conflicts with the game’s current state. He stated that they’re doing everything to fix and optimize Escape From Tarkov, but also discovered a substantial topic on upcoming features including Storyline Quests.

The main aim of the Storyline Quests is to learn the players with the original story of the game. That would connect the player to all of the different factions, such as Cults, PMCs, Terra Group, and their origin. Tomorrow we’re prepared for a deeper dive of patch 0.12.1. For now, we’ll leave you only with the preliminary patch notes.
