Escape from Tarkov PS4, PS5

Battlestate Games has not announced any plans for a Escape Tarkov PS4/PS5 Release yet, and appears to be targeting the PC version. However, a FAQ posted in 2015 revealed that a console version was being considered, although the same was said about Steam, which is also yet to be done.

We’re considering it, but it’s too early to talk about that.

Fast forward to June 2020, and Nikita Buyanov of the studio said a console version of Escape from Tarkov was “planned,” but so far there’s no confirmation that the game will be coming to PS4 and PS5.

What is escape from Tarkov?

Here’s the full blurb:

Escape from Tarkov is a hardcore and realistic online first-person action RPG/Simulator with MMO features and a story-driven walkthrough.

With each passing day, the situation in the Norvinsk region is getting more and more complicated. The incessant warfare in Tarkov has caused enormous panic; the locals have fled the city, but those who have stayed want to improve their fortunes at the expense of others. Having accepted the new reality, the wild Tarkov inhabitants – “Scavs” flocked to well-armed gangs and began to restructure the city.

Today Tarkov is separated by invisible borders, controlled by different groups. For-profit gunmen would go to great lengths to get their way, including killing civilians and confronting the two private military companies.

The players will have to experience living in the skin of one of the mercenaries who survived the early stages of the Tarkov conflict. After choosing one of the sides – USEC or BEAR – the player character starts to make his way out of the city.

Tarkov has been cut off by the UN and Russian military, supply chains have been cut, communications with the operational command have been cut and in these circumstances everyone must make their own choices about what to do and how to get out of the chaos-ridden metropolis.
