Geeze, its strange how some good lookin shooters in development just appear out of nowhere.

Ive never heard of Escape from Tarkov or the devs Battle State Games (probably because theyre a Russian outfit).

Thanks for posting Sokol1!

I looked up the game engine ... Unity 5 ... also never heard of it but it looks great!

Well, at the moment this is my must have game for 2016...

I also like the proposed system they will use that should shut out the run and gun crowd... all the things you collect, add to, garner to yourself to survive in this dangerous environment, will be lost when you die!
All you will retain is some gear that you can keep in a 'secret stash'... this hopefully will make users careful about their virtual lives.
So for online it won't simply be 'run, gun, die, re-spawn, rinse and repeat'...

Four different packages of the game, ranging in price.... think I will do the standard edition. That will give me guaranteed access to the beta.

You lost me at "MMO"

Every single game with that little "feature" has a hangar load of poor design decisions.

Feels like an overpriced and overhyped version of the excellent STALKER series. There are so many good games probably better than this one Dying Light + the Following, Fallout 4 etc...

''So many good games probably better than this one''... The game isn't even out yet and it already being slagged. Must be fantastic having some magical foresight into the future screwy

Overpriced? The game is $45, that makes it cheap actually. STALKER games were all $50 on release.

Looks interesting even for me that usually don't like collecting stuff. Anyone know how big the maps are?

They claim about 15kmsq so about 4km x 4km.

So not small... but not big by any means either. But it is in a city so it should be densely compacted maps with multi floor buildings. Not many open fields etc.

Also keep in mind the 4km x 4km is for the open world roaming map. Most of the game is designed around coop linear progression with multiple teams fighting to get through the map faster than the other teams.

SO probably most of the maps will be 2km x 4km since the main focus of the game uses 8kmsq maps.

Except the Season Pass (surprise)costs at least $40; and the only way to get it right now is to buy the "Edge of Darkness" edition which costs $140!!

Makes me wonder how much content we're actually getting for $45, and how much got stripped to get more pre-orders\DLC purchases.

What makes you think anything is getting "stripped out"? The different tiers give you access to the game at different stages of development.

You pay through the nose for the "Limited Edition - Edge of Darkness" edition to get access to the Alpha phase, you pay less for the beta and the $45 for the release version. Its a fairly common model now for games ( though the top tier is still eye watering ).

I don't honestly know about the DLC part, have you any links to what they are proposing?

I'm pretty sure I will get into this game... I don't normally do any kind of survivalist game as it usually revolves around zombies or some sort of mutant species from a nuclear war, I just can't be bothered with those genres.
However, as it has been stated that EFT will not be going down that road I am impressed by what I have seen so far...
