Escape From Tarkov Wipe Confirmed for December 27

The time has come!

It’s official! Pack your bags, say goodbye to your hoarded loot, and prepare for a clean slate because the Escape From Tarkov wipe is upon us! The developers have taken to Twitter to announce the game-changing update that will hit the servers on December 27.

The update is scheduled to roll out at the crack of dawn, 7:00 AM GMT (2:00 AM for the night owls in EST). Patch is the herald of a brand-new start. Players must bid farewell to their meticulously curated inventories and high-tech hideouts as the wipe clears the board for all.

The announcement arrived via Twitter. You can find it below:

The patch installation is expected to take approximately six hours, assuming all goes to plan. If not, well, Tarkov giveth and Tarkov taketh away. Sometimes, more time is needed to ensure everything is up to those gritty Tarkov standards.

Before the wipe, it’s an everything-must-go sale in Tarkov. Prices plummet, making it rain with high-tier gear that you’d usually need a small fortune to afford. So, while you wait for the wipe, why not go out with a bang? Dive into the most dangerous raids, engage in reckless PVP, and use the gear you’d normally admire from a safe distance.

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.
