Batttlestate Games announced today that registration for the closed alpha of their upcoming military-themed FPS/MMO Escape from Tarkov has opened. The alpha is scheduled to begin on August 4th. Interested gamers can register at the official website.
In addition to the closed alpha announcement, Battlestate Games has released a lengthy 28 minute video featuring new gameplay footage from their latest alpha build. The video is without commentary, but viewers will be able to see the game’s inventory system in action, some equipment scavenging, and some short firefights.
Escape from Tarkov is set in the sealed Russian city of Tarkov, where two private military companies are trapped inside. Players will need to rely on their wits and their fellow employees to survive this city torn apart by conflict.
