Last Chance To Claim Escape From Tarkov Gifts And 25% Off Discount
In celebration of Battlestate Games' birthday, all editions of Escape From Tarkov are 25% off, but the deal ends today.
Battlestate Games, the studio behind Escape From Tarkov, is celebrating its birthday this week. As a thank you to its fans, the team has marked down all preorder editions of the game by 25%, but there's not long left to take advantage of it. The sale ends today, October 16 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET. This is also your last chance to claim your free in-game gift bundle—another token of Battlestate's gratitude.
Friends! Huge thanks for your great support and understanding, patience and constructive criticism. We have always been and will always strive for the best, together with you#EscapefromTarkov— Battlestate Games (@bstategames) October 14, 2020

The sale comes ahead of the highly anticipated Escape From Tarkov 12.8 update, which was supposed to go live this week, but had to be delayed last-minute due to "unforeseen bugs" and other issues.

How To Claim 25% Off Escape From Tarkov Preorders
There are several editions of Escape From Tarkov available to preorder, which we've broken down in our Escape From Tarkov preorder guide. Each one, including the $140 Edge of Darkness Limited Edition, is 25% off until October 16 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET.
You can preorder your edition of choice on the Escape From Tarkov website, but remember to login to your Battlestate Games account first for more accurate prices. If you already own the Standard edition of Escape From Tarkov (or any of the middle tiers), the pricier editions will be listed at a lower price because you'd be upgrading from your current version. For instance, if you own the Standard edition already, it usually costs $95 to upgrade to Edge of Darkness, but with the 25% off applied, it's now just $71.25.
