Escape From Tarkov Reaches New Milestone of 200,000 Players Online

Escape From Tarkov, one of the most realistic first-person tactical shooters, has reached a new milestone. Battlestate Games has just announced that Escape From Tarkov has managed to gather 200,000 players online. BSG ought to be quiet about the number of players so far, with this being the first public announcement regarding the matter.

Escape From Tarkov is still in closed beta, accessible behind a paywall. Only those who purchase the game have complete access to it. Recently, the game’s anti-cheat system, BattlEye, has established a new number of bans, which in total reflects over 4500. This proves how impactful a game like this could be, pushing players to seek an advantage by using unallowed software.

Surviving in Escape From Tarkov is one of the most vital tasks, especially after the installment of 0.12.6, which assigns Found-In-Raid items to be the only acceptable listings on the in-game auction house or Flea Market. It was estimated that this would push players to use third-party tools to elevate their in-game performance, for which BattlEye’s banhammer started pounding.

Furthermore, the developer Battlestate Games calls on continuous work on coming updates, tweaks, and fixes. Hopefully, we’ll see Escape From Tarkov coming close to a full release, which should increase the number of players even higher.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
