Alpha testing for Escape from Tarkov starts in August

Battlestate Games has announced alpha testing for Escape from Tarkov will kick off the first week of August.

Alpha testing for Escape from Tarkov starts in August

According to a developer post, between now and the Alpha's launch, new game features will be revealed and the team will continue working on added content for testing.

The team doesn't want to open access to the current state of the game, as it doesn't "serve any purpose."

"Alpha testing should not only polish the project and add content, but thoroughly balance and flesh out the details of game mechanics," said the studio. "This is why we have formed a perfectly clear vision of what alpha testing should include - the version of the game where we could solve all of these tasks together.

"The most important point of the early testing is the solid base that will be added to the game in the coming days and will make it to the Alpha - and, ultimately, serve as a steady foundation to Escape from Tarkov."

Alpha testing for Escape from Tarkov will go live on August 4, and you can find out more on registration for upcoming tests on the official website.
