Escape From Tarkov, the realistic and hardcore first-person shooter developed by Battlestate Games, appeared on Steam today. Against all the odds, such impersonation can emerge, even if we’re talking about a top-notch digital reseller such as Steam, which makes the product unauthentic and up for money grabs only.
As much as we love seeing Escape From Tarkov on Steam, it appears that this is a FAKE version of Escape From Tarkov, so make sure you don’t buy it. After it gained some traction, we contacted Battlestate Games regarding the Steam listing, and the response was that the product it’s fake and Battlestate Games would react soon.
In the meantime, some of the finest content creators have highlighted the treachery and raised awareness not to purchase this product and get bamboozled. Again, it’s weird to see such a culprit existing on Steam, where others can impersonate bigger development studios.
It turns out that the impersonator had created an EFT game title before, which APP ID now leads to Escape From Tarkov. The product serves all of the game’s original video trailers and images. However, there’s one problem, the Steam version offers only one edition of the game. Either way, this product is fake and nowhere near the unique Escape From Tarkov experience.
Just used way back machine on the steam app id for the new EFT (recoil is prolly fixed on steam version tbh) and on dec 27th of last year this is what their page looked like. pic.twitter.com/HRDuZ1Z9rI
