Escape from Tarkov - Hardcore Narrative MMO Set in Russia

The first details have emerged about a new MMO called Escape from Tarkov set in the fictional Russian city of Norvinsk. Called a "hardcore narrative online game", players will take the role of ex-mercenaries trying to survive and escape from the city.

Today Norvinsk oblast has become a scene for active agents of two private military companies hired by two sides of the conflict. USEC works for the scandalous international corporation Terra Group and provides local skirmishes in order to obstruct investigation of the company's activity by local authorities. Moreover, according to intelligence, USEC affords protection for the illegal practices of a foreign company. BEAR, which, on hearsay, was created by the direct order of Russian government, and operates as part of the official Norvinsk authorities and searches for any clues of illicit activity of the Terra Group.

With every new day the situation in Norvinsk oblast becomes stranger and more complicated. Panic reigns as the city is plunged into armed conflict: citizens flee while those who stay begin to scavenge whatever they can. Taking the new realities as a matter of course and huddling up into well-armed gangs, scavs start their own battle for territories. Today, Tarkov is divided by unseen borders set by bandit groups. Up-for-anything, they won't stop short at killing innocents or waging a war against two private military companies.

Find out more and see the first in-game screens on the Escape from Tarkov site.
