Battlestate Games, developers behind the wildly popular Escape from Tarkov, have revealed the June 29 patch notes for their tactical FPS title. 

Despite releasing the beta nearly four years ago, Battlestate Games’ Escape from Tarkov has experienced a new lease of life on streaming platforms, with some of the world’s biggest entertainers making the switch over to the tactical FPS.


The support of the game’s developers has been widely praised, with regular updates added to keep the game fresh.

Escape from Tarkov has grown in popularity in the years since its release.

On June 29, Battlestate Games released a new EFT update patch with numerous bug fixes but, more interestingly, new quests for players to dive into. The patch was announced and released promptly, being completed by 11am EST on June 29.


The patch, which will make the game unavailable for approximately two hours, adds two new quests for Prapor, available after level 10.

However, that’s not all, as Battlestate confirmed there will be multiple bug fixes coming with the update. This includes a bug in which players were granted double damage when hitting enemies in the thorax, and a bug that inhibited Killa from shooting back in certain scenarios.

Finally, the update will feature various technical and stability fixes, hopefully, to minimize the amount of freezes players experience.


The developers confirmed the fixes have been implemented, and that Tarkov is now back live and the servers are running for all players. Be sure to drop in and provide your feedback, as well as highlighting any new issues you find!

Escape from Tarkov developers Battlestate Games have rolled out a significant update on August 13, patch, to fix a host of bugs and issues in the game.

The game was down for around two hours as the patch was rolled out, with the changes resolving a number of complaints players have had – some for a matter of weeks now.

There doesn’t appear to be a fix for the notorious speed glitch which has reared its head again in EFT though, as players noted back at the end of July.


The devs did manage to fix this exploit when players are moving forwards, however it still seems to work if the player is moving backward instead.

Patch 12.8 is expected to come this month, in August, at least according to the most recent information from Battlestate. What exactly it will contain is not known though.

Patch 12.9, expected in September, is set to bring  Chest Rig and Plate Carriers customization, before the new Streets of Tarkov map is added in 13.0, expected in October.
