Battlestate Games has brought a new wave of exciting, extraction-based content with its Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta start date. Though the high-stakes looter shooter has long been a hit with the FPS community, this latest expansion is set to make the game even more of a hit with the plethora of content the developers are set to introduce.

Before we jump into the nitty-gritty of its newest expansion, you may want to know more about the Escape from Tarkov Xbox and PlayStation compatibility. However, if you already have a gaming platform you prefer playing the shoot ’em up on, keep reading to find out when the closed beta begins and how you can join in on the fun.

Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta start date

The Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta start date began Sunday, December 17, 2023. Battlestate Games COO Nikita Buyanov confirmed the expansion’s kickoff following the conclusion of their tournament at DreamHack Hannover. If you haven’t received an invite from the developers yet, worry not; this is only the first wave. More will be sent by Battlestate Games in the coming weeks.

Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta end date prediction

We expect the Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta end date to take place in 2024, before the expansion’s full release. Unfortunately, Battlestate Games has yet to announce when the pre-launch period will actually conclude, so this may end up changing depending on the developer’s release strategy. However, we will continue to update this page with the latest information so you know what to expect ahead of time.

How to join Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta

To join the Escape from Tarkov Arena closed beta, you will need to pre-order the expansion ($35) through the official website. Alternatively, you can also purchase the Edge of Darkness Limited Edition ($150) instead, as this will grant you access to Arena as well as all subsequent DLCs Battlestate Games releases in the future.

Keep in mind, though, that since the closed beta has already begun, you may not receive an invite to the closed beta immediately. But since the devs have only released the first wave of invitations, you should still be in with a good chance of joining in and experiencing the new content well before the pre-launch period ends.
