Gamers have been asking if Escape From Tarkov would come to Steam for years, and it appeared at the moment that their prayers had been answered when a devoted Steam web page appeared. Nonetheless, we requested Battlestate Video games and sadly, the brand new Escape From Tarkov Steam web page is definitely a faux.
The web page in query was initially created in December 2022, with the identify EFT, and the outline “Begin escaping from Tartarus jail the place you’re imprisoned!” This may sound like a special sport and it was marked as Single Participant with a launch date of December twenty seventh. At this level, the itemizing confirmed no trace of being like Escape From Tarkov in any method, and it sat quietly, lurking on the Steam retailer not making any actual gross sales or selecting up any curiosity.
Then, beginning a few week in the past, whoever is behind the web page began updating the Steam itemizing with hints of what was coming, as issues just like the set up listing had been modified to reference Escape From Tarkov. Nonetheless, they waited, and at the moment they up to date the shop to create a deceptive Escape From Tarkov web page, placing up quite a lot of property from the sport, an outline of it, and even altering the developer’s identify to Battlestate Video games.
Thus far, it has but to be the success the scammers had been seemingly hoping as few appear to have bought the sport, with it displaying only one individual on-line proper now, and solely a few evaluations. Let’s hope it stays that method, and that Valve is hasty on taking it down, as these kind of scams assist nobody.
Escape From Tarkov is at the moment completely accessible just for PC by way of the Battlestate Video games web site, as a part of a pre-order beta that prices $44.99 for the bottom version.
