Escape from Tarkov has been updated with a beefy patch that brings over 70 new items into the game as well as "enhanced early access sets". Players will have access to a plethora of new weaponry, a full system of gestures and voice commands to assist with communication and advanced weapon handling. Improvements and tweaks were also applied to several features including optimization, grenade functionality, tweaks to armor and character damage and much more.

Most importantly, this update paves the way for Open Beta which is scheduled to begin prior to the end of 2017. "By that time, the game will be expanded with new game mechanics, improvements of existing ones, more optimizations of graphics and network components, as well as additional game content, including new weapons and locations."

In addition, Battlestate has announced that localization projects are underway for languages including German, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Polish, Czech, Portuguese, Japanese and Korean.
