Battlestate Games has released a substantial patch update for their flagship game, Escape from Tarkov, this week. The most significant of all changes is the global wipe of characters in the game. Apart from the new additions and bug improvements in the game, the devs have also introduced a new system to cease suspicious activity in the flea market.
The MMO shooter’s much-awaited Patch 0.12.6.7456 is now live, bringing a host of new additions and changes with it. Battlestate Games kept its word of leveling the playing field for all users by wiping the character progress and equipment.
The combination of Escape from Tarkov and Captcha has given many users quite a headache while logging in or switching accounts. However, good use of the security system is finally here.
Escape from Tarkov will also look to tackle the cheaters taking undue advantage of the Flea market in the game. Any suspicious activity in the marketplace will now trigger the Captcha security protocol. Three unsuccessful Captcha attempts will trigger a 5-minute ban from trading.
The patch also fixed a ton of bugs and issues in the game. You can check out the patch notes in its entirety here.
Furthermore, the devs have also brought in some much-needed improvements to the in-game AI.
Any issues while logging in after the update are commonplace. The devs have assured everyone they will work on it until it is a smooth transition.
