The developers of Escape From Tarkov have finally spoken. After a long time without any particular event or game update, Battlestate Games has announced that a new technical update will be installed tomorrow morning. While its contents remain unknown, the server downtime will take approximately 3 hours, which could be alluding to something big.
The server maintenance will start tomorrow at 8 AM BST / 3 AM EDT. The update is classified as 0.12.12.32. The installation of the update will take approximately 3 hours and may be extended. It’s likely to take more than 3 hours, considering the outcome of the previous major updates.
So, what’s due exactly? There are still unfinished goals set for this wipe cycle. One of them is the inclusion of the in-game trader, Lightkeeper, which may take place tomorrow. Other than that, with the massive influx of cheaters recently, there could be some anti-cheat update that may patch some holes that allowed third-party unauthorized software to ruin the gameplay experience for others.
Tomorrow, October 12, at 8AM BST/3AM EDT we are planning to install technical update 0.12.12.32. The installation will take approximately 3 hours, but may be extended if required. The game will not be accessible during this period.#EscapefromTarkov
