About the game

So basically Escape from Tarkov is an FPS multiplayer game. The game took a long 5 years to develop since starting in 2012 and was released back in 2016 as in alpha stage to select players. Then it was officially released in 2017 for windows and then followed by a closed beta-testing running since July 2017 to this day.
