Escape from Tarkov is a nice-looking and enjoyable first-person shooter game that is massively played online from Windows PCs and macOS systems. Developed by the Russian studio Battlestate Games, the game is a relatively new title since it was released in 2017. But even so, it’s worth giving it a try if you’re deep into online shooters.
After the developer and publisher Battlestate has fixed the issue with the servers being down, a new update for ‘Escape from Tarkov’ is now being rolled out in all regions and it’s live – which means that it can be downloaded. The new update has the patch version 0.12.4.6617, and it brings a series of bug fixes and optimizations for the game.
The new 0.12.4.6617 update doesn’t bring new content to the game, but it’s still worth installing and taking advantage of it. Let’s see exactly what it brings:
- Fixed some situations when the game was freezing during combats
- Fixes for various bugs that were also causing some minor freezes and stuttering
- Fix for a bug that was causing ammo to visually being spent in the hideout’s shooting range (and related bugs)
- Fix for a bug regarding the ability to get to the Lab during nighttime
- Fixes for partial interface layout for 4:3 screens. The screen layout for location selection and group lobby were affected
- Fix for a bug that occurred when trying to buy some mods for a weapon preset
- Various technical changes
