Escape from Tarkov is a looter shooter with a strong emphasis on tactical gunplay and realism.

Now, we've gotten a look at some of the cool new features.

Here Are the New Features Coming to Escape from Tarkov
A submission on the game's official subreddit compiled a series of tweets from the developers that highlight all of the new Escape from Tarkov features on the way, most of which were revealed on Friday during the TarkovTV LIVE podcast.
First and foremost, you'll get a little more variety for your daily ventures into Tarkov with the addition of new daily tasks. A single example was shown from the Peacekeeper NPC; it requires you to eliminate 10 Scavs using SMGs or shotguns.
Managing your guns and gear is a big part of Tarkov -- that's going to be getting some changes and improvements, too. We got a look at some slight changes to repairing equipment, but the more interesting changes are coming to crafting -- it looks like you will no longer destroy crafting tools when making items. (The consumable resources, however, will still be expended when making a new item).
Other changes include an update to the Lighthouse, what looks like a new "Lightkeeper" NPC, and various graphical improvements. You can see all of this new content in the tweets linked in the Reddit submission. If you'd like to get involved with the game, you can get access to the Escape from Tarkov closed beta right now starting at $44.99 or your regional equivalent.
