Escape From Tarkov is getting Hideout Pets and Map Expansions soon!

Nikita Buyanov, the mastermind behind Escape From Tarkov (BSG’s COO), just released some Twitter polls that excite the community about what’s next for the game.

Nikita’s got us pondering the next addition to our hideouts. He tweeted out a poll giving us options like a hideout cat, dog, or parrot. Imagine chilling in your hideout, organizing your stash, and a parrot squawking in the background. It’s like having a piece of the Caribbean in the middle of your war-torn Russian wasteland.

The poll’s already racked up over 45,000 votes with 16 hours left, so what are you even doing if you haven’t cast your vote yet? Now, this one’s got me hyped. Nikita’s second poll asks us where we want to see the next big expansion. Choices are Lighthouse expansion, Customs expansion, or Factory remake. Over 50,000 of you have already thrown in your two cents. Personally, I’m all in for the Factory remake. That map’s a classic, but it could use a little love to bring it up to the current standards. Plus, those close-quarters combat scenarios are always a blast.

So, what’s the community saying? Some of the fans are all about the pets, wanting their hideout filled with furries. Others are keen on the map expansions, eager to explore new areas or see old ones revamped. This kind of interaction from Nikita was much needed, especially after its competition had gotten way more serious with Arena Breakout Infinite around the corner.

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.
