Escape From Tarkov's New Map Revealed, 12.7 Patch Will Revamp The Skill System

The military sim shooter Escape From Tarkov had new content to share during the PC Gaming Show, here's what we know.


Escape From Tarkov had a ton of new content detailed during the PC Gaming Show, and players of the military sim shooter can look forward to the next map, the revamped skill system, and a new boss. These features are part of Tarkov's upcoming 12.7 patch, which was said to be more of a technical update.

The major reveal was the new map and it looks to be a highly detailed rundown city full of buildings to explore, and Battlestate's head of PR Nikita Buyanov said that this will be the "biggest and most detailed location" for Tarkov. Sound design will be very important as the trailer showcased the different audio cues of walking on different surfaces. You can see the preview of the map in the video below.

Buyanov also stated the the Customs map size will increase by 30 to 40 percent. Although 12.7 will overhaul the skill system and include the new Senator boss, we didn't get further details on those features. For more on the game, be sure to check out our Escape From Tarkov coverage.
