Massive Expansion to ‘Escape From Tarkov’ Map Revealed in 0.13.5 Patch Notes
The 0.13.5 patch notes for upcoming shooter-survival game “Escape From Tarkov” have been released, teasing a massive expansion to the game’s current map. One of the largest changes in the patch is the expansion of the map from 25 square kilometers to 64.6 square kilometers. This will also open up a range of new locations, such as the Karmanovskaya and Shakhovka military base, the Svetlojarsk chemical plant, and the Sverdlovsk region. Along with that, new objects for loot, new characters, weapons, weapon mods, and features have been added.
Despite the massive addition of content, the game will run in the same engine as before, making sure no previously established locations are rendered invalid or otherwise unplayable on the new patch. During gameplay, players may now take advantage of the new locations to launch attacks, discover loot, and find cover. The patch also brings with it a new weapon rarity system, new weapon mod types, and quality of life improvements such as an improved map.
The patch also includes a number of optimizations, bug fixes, and other tweaks and improvements. Some examples of these changes include improved lighting and textures for all objects and surfaces in the game, improved environment sounds, and a better inventory interface. All of these changes allow players to experience smoother gaming, with less visible bugs and glitches.
Overall the 0.13.5 patch for “Escape From Tarkov” is looking to be exciting for players familiar with the original map, as well as newcomers to the game. With both content and performance improvements, the game’s development team has put in the work to make sure that the new version of the game looks and feels as good as possible.
