Escape From Tarkov: New Map Confirmed

As part of the huge showcase, the team revealed an urban cityscape where the battle for survival will take place next.

"It will be the biggest and most detailed location ever," Nikita said on the stream, "there will be a lot of explorable buildings and underground [areas]. It's an attempt to recreate the realistic modern city."

Version 12.7 Update: What comes next?

According to Nikita, the 12.7 patch is "more like a technical patch. It will include the big addition called the expansion of Customs location" which the Buyanov claims will increase the overall area by "30 or even 40 per cent".

Looking ahead, Battlestate will "totally overhaul the skill system" and add a new boss, so 2020 is only likely to get better for Tarkov fans.
