TV Game of the Week: Episode 1 – Escape From Tarkov [PC]

How would you act in a lawless wasteland? Would you shoot first, and ask questions later? Try to be friendly? What if it’s your teammate who should be back any minute? Can’t risk it. Better stay hidden.

Escape From Tarkov is by far the most immersive gun-simulator game on the market. You are plunged into real-life locations with little to no guidance. Pick from an arsenal of guns both old and new, pack your magazines bullet-by-bullet, and travel the wasteland clutching your favourite firearm and looting what you can.

Each round (raid) is anywhere between 7-40 minutes. You must reach an extraction point before the time runs out. Choose your teammates wisely, and enjoy one of the best videogame experiences of all time.

Since the public open beta started in 2017, Escape From Tarkov (EFT) has been a fan-favourite. The gameplay mechanics are both enjoyable and satisfying to master. With 3D models of every item and accurate gun-part compatibility, you are met with unimaginable customization and variety in the gameplay experience.

One of the best things about EFT, is the lack of UI and “video game” feeling. It truly feels like a simulator and the pacing is very realistic. As a simulator, you have precise control over every aspect of the game. From how fast you walk, and how low you crouch, to the armor and headphones you wear.

If you made it this far, you must be wondering about price and performance. EFT does push the limits of computing and does require a modern CPU to run adequately. The game is around $50CAD and does go on sale frequently. Find it on
