Introducing the latest patch for the highly popular extraction shooter, Escape from Tarkov. This eagerly anticipated update not only tackles various game bugs, but also resolves a persistent issue that has been causing frustration among players for several weeks. Stay ahead of the game with the latest improvements and optimizations in Escape from Tarkov’s newest patch.

A newly released patch,, for Escape from Tarkov addresses a number of the game's bugs, as well as an issue that has been annoying players since the holidays. Servers for the popular FPS were down for several hours to accommodate the small yet significant update.

Battlestate Games' Escape from Tarkov is one of the most prominent extraction shooters currently available on the market. The title has attracted a solid following thanks to the hardcore survival experience it offers, but as the game is still in closed beta, it is not that uncommon for bugs that can ruin players' matches to appear occasionally. Fortunately, Escape from Tarkov frequently gets updates that address its technical problems, and the most recent one in particular has received quite a warm welcome from players.

The latest update, patch, for Escape from Tarkov dropped on January 24 and resulted in the online shooter being down for around three hours for installation. This small update delivered many gameplay fixes and tweaks. It also reduced the loudness of footsteps on snow, a seemingly benign change that was actually met with a lot of praise. Escape from Tarkov's patch that was released last December introduced a snow mechanic to the game, but many have complained of the excessive noise that was generated when walking on the simulated ice.

Escape from Tarkov's new snow feature itself, however, was well received by the community. The weather mechanic was supposed to be in the title for only a limited time, but Battlestate Games has been mulling over whether to make snow a permanent fixture after it became extremely popular in the community. Escape from Tarkov is a game that focuses heavily on realism, and mechanics like snow can add depth and enhance the gameplay experience for many.

Those who enjoyed the snow mechanic will be glad to know that Escape from Tarkov will receive even more seasons in 2024. In addition, Battlestate Games is set to massively rework Escape from Tarkov's visuals and vegetation, as well as introduce a new endgame scenario that will give players the opportunity to finally escape from the titular city of Tarkov.
