2019 plans

Recommended Posts

Greetings, dear friends!

2018 is coming to an end, and we continue to move on - ahead of new discoveries and new achievements. Now we would like to tell you what awaits you in Escape from Tarkov in 2019 and in the next updates in general.

 

2019 plans:

  • Next update - next big fix and optimization iteration
    • Bugfixing (which lead to almost all the problems in the game - gameplay, network, performance)
    • Sound positioning fixes and rework
    • Ongoing freezes and stuttering fixes (which caused by grass rendering for example)
    • Optimizations (optics (“picture in picture”), optimization of vegetation, special optimizations on video card, optimization of RAM)
    • Balance tweaks (weapon mods balancing, gear parameters changes)
    • Various QoL improvements
    • Other fixes that you can tell us about in special topics created (https://forum.escapefromtarkov.com/forum/108-support/)
       
  • Additional important things that we did not have in time in 0.11, which will be added as soon as possible
    • Character clothing customization
    • Key-cards functionality on Labs and other location
    • New type of exfils on current locations
    • SVD rifle
    • New trader - Jaeger. Possibly, he will trade lost uninsured items on the last level of loyalty
    • Field surgical kit (it will fix blacked body parts)
    • New 3-rd person character animations and optimizations
    • New anti-aliasing
    • Weapon preset builds and the ability to buy and assemble them quickly
       
  • Patch 0.12 - the Hideout
     
    • The process of escaping from Tarkov is not as rapid as it seems in reality. A character needs to settle down in order to gain strength, to store the found supplies, equipment and weapons. In other words, regroup to perform the main task in the game.
    • The player begins the construction and organization of the Hideout from scratch - initially it imagines an abandoned and cluttered bomb shelter without any means of life support. Consistently building and improving Hideout modules, such as a generator, a water collection system, ventilation, a medblock, a intelligence center, heating, a bathroom, and many others, your character improves his various characteristics, such as off-raid regeneration of health, hydration and energy. The player also receives special opportunities for the production of medicines, ammunition and other items for various resources. Improvements to the intelligence center provide new opportunities for working with merchants and Scavs and much more.
       
  • Visual enhancement patch (with Unity 2018 upgrade)
     
    • Old maps overhaul
    • Vegetation rework
    • Screenspace effects rework and optimization
    • General graphics optimization
       
  • New locations updates
    • The closest one - Military Base
    • Working stationary weapons
       
  • New bosses updates
     
    • Each location will have a boss (and some location will have even two)
    • The closest new boss is the leader of Woods Scavs “Kojaniy”, which you have already seen on the EFT artwork with Scav
    • New PvE groups - UN troops, cultists, boss guards and others
       
  • Updates with introduction of big storyline quests
     
    • They will shed light on the events in Tarkov and immerse you in the plot.
       
  • Other interesting features in the next updates
     
    • Metric (graphics) in the flea market, the inclusion of corrected dynamic prices
    • Item global pool introduction (test of the global “depleting” economy)
    • Offline mode improvements - cinematic mode, pve mode for playing with friends
    • Inventory system changes (autosorting, usability improvement)
    • Daily tasks
    • Compasses and binoculars
    • Mines and tripwires
    • New weapon mechanics and abilities to control your character
    • Many others

These are the main plans for 2019. We will do our best to make all this a reality for you. We also note that the start of open beta testing is not far off.

But the most important thing we want to tell you is how we thank you for your support. It was a difficult year. Escape from Tarkov is our life and we will do everything to make our dream game for you. And when we see that our work finds a response in your hearts, we understand that we are doing all this for good reason.

Next year will continue to be as open as possible for your suggestions. If you have something to say on any occasion related to the game - write to us, and, we promise, you will be heard. We want to emphasize that we are not against adequate criticism, not against practical advice and assistance in any matter - this is the difficult and many-sided journey of creating Escape from Tarkov with you for the first time for us.

I personally want to thank my guys from Battlestate. To say that you are the best is to say nothing. This kind of dedication, I have not seen and never felt. I am nobody without you - thank you very much!

I also want to thank our team of community managers, emissaries, support team and everyone who works with us, sometimes in incredible conditions. Knowing that there are such people, life becomes calmer.

So where do without you, dear EFT community - loving us with all heart and ruthless at the same time :) Thank you for your opinions, for your desire to see the game better and for your confidence in us.

Happy New Year!

“Happiness for all, for free, and let no one leave offended!”

 

Nik Buyanov and Battlestate team

Oh yes...it sounds really good. And yes I'm with you...VOIP would be really good. I'm not a friend of the gesture system...I'm dead before I can made a friendly gesture.

Happy New Year to all Escapers and Developers (and to all Scavs...you don't need to kill all Scavs on sight...sucks hard)

But anyway, Happy New Year to all.

This thing better take +2 min to apply, otherwise, it'd be super cheap.

Interested to see these new visual overhauls to the old maps and the foliage as well as the upgrade to Unity 2018, as far as I know it is a much more stable platform but I only work in UE4 so I don't know much about that. The hideout sounds really interesting and the trader Jaeger selling items lost at royalty sounds cool, I am imagining that he is some sort of head of a crime syndicate or the head of a large network of scavengers. Oh! Also the new weapon mechanics has got me on the edge of my seat I would love to see an option to change up the style of grip we have on our guns with each having their own pros and cons,  also hoping to see the animations for reloading our mags *wink :scwhink:
