Everything you need to know about Escape From Tarkov Arena

Nikita reveals further details on their upcoming tactical first-person shooter, Escape From Tarkov Arena.

Escape From Tarkov, the realistic first-person shooter developed by Battlestate Games, will get a team-based shooter component named Arena that will convey a completely different message and differ from its core gameplay. Not to a considerable extent, no, but instead will promote tactical team-based activities, where two opposing teams will fight for the remaining goodies on the map. But that is not all. Rather, there will be objectives too. Let’s take a look at the complete list of questions answered by Nikita, BSG’s COO, during the last TarkovTV podcast.

What kind of objectives? Well, think of CS GO or Valorant. Think of Rainbow Six Siege too, where the objective is more important than running around fishing for kills. The objectives are the reason for winning rounds. With Battlestate Games almost always thinking outside of the box, I’m excited to see what kind of Objectives there will be, besides fighting till the last breath.

On Thursday, during TarkovTV’s official broadcast, Nikita, Battlestate Games’ COO revealed some additional information about Escape From Tarkov Arena, and some of its features and plans over the coming course. Well, we’ve taken notice of some of the questions that were being answered regarding Escape From Tarkov Arena, and you can find them below.
