When you are familiar with the map, you need to look up the strategy and compare it with a plan like this, with potential evacuation points, resource locations, BOSS points, and other information marked on it

Willfulness & Truth

When I first entered the world of Escape from Tarkov, my biggest feeling was “lost.” The game does not have any UI and goal guidance, the map is really a paper map, which can neither help you identify the direction nor mark your location. Although I know that I need to search for resources and reach the evacuation point-but I have no idea where there are resources and which are the evacuation points. So logically, I “give it for nothing” in the first hand. And because it failed to evacuate successfully, all the things originally brought into this copy, including firearms, backpacks, food, medicine, were all lost…

Guarantee & Mode

Although “big ups and downs” is the norm in Escape from Tarkov, it is after all a game that needs to be oriented to the entertainment needs of players. The minimum guarantee measures are complete-of course, these measures are still in a stretched state.

The optimization of the game is very bad. Although the scene is not complicated and the open map is not too exaggerated, it will always be accompanied by the problem of screen tearing.

Optimization & The Future

Although Escape from Tarkov has been developed for 8 consecutive years since 2012, it is still in the Beta testing stage, and neither optimization nor content is perfect. Because the optimization is poor, it requires a very high PC hardware configuration to play this game, and there are still frequent problems such as freezes and screen tearing in the process. If you want to get a normal game experience, I still recommend waiting until the game is officially released, or the follow-up update is more perfect.

Conclusion

Few games dare to challenge the player’s comfort zone so “unreasonably”-in today’s environment, I don’t think it is a game suitable for mass players, or even most of the so-called “core players”. But even so, Escape from Tarkov’s realism and game mechanics still impressed me deeply. Perhaps one day in the future, it can really shine. Therefore, in the new year, whether this game is still worthy of players to continue, or players need to consider themselves.
