Battlestate Games has just unveiled a brand-new map heading to its MMO FPS games Escape From Tarkov during the live PC Gaming Show conference. The new map was revealed in a brief new gameplay clip of a player stepping through a new, deserted-looking set for buildings and city streets. According to a new teaser clip (included below) it’s called Streets of Tarkov, and is the “biggest and most detailed location ever… it’s an attempt to simulate a modern city,” according to COO Nikita Buyanov.

Escape from Tarkov players got a pleasant surprise as the past week wound down: in a surprise update Friday, Battlestate Games added the Shpagin PPSh-41 submachine gun and the Colt M1911 pistol, two weapons guaranteed to make waves in Tarkov.
In Escape from Tarkov, Interchange is a large map that features a shopping mall situated at the intersection of two expressways. That map is getting a rework in the next patch, and the new version will take some getting used to.
Hardcore looter-shooter Escape from Tarkov has recently seen a massive spike in popularity, driven at least in part by a Twitch promotion that let players collect valuable in-game loot by watching certain Tarkov streamers. That newfound popularity has led to questions about plans for the final version of the game, and developer Battlestate Games has clarified that it has no plans to include female character models.
Being a professional streamer can be hard work, with surprising challenges. Keeping a schedule, getting numbers up, interacting with your audience, making good banter, and having a functioning PC – these are just a few of the issues content creators doing livestreaming have to face. However, most people would not add ‘cat being sick so hard it destroys everything’ to that list – but one person would, now.
