On 25th April, Battlestate Games unveiled the latest 'Unheard Edition' of Escape from Tarkov, which is a bundle that is going to be replacing the Edge of Darkness one. While it offers way more than what the Edge of Darkness, it has seemingly failed to impress its fanbase and players. Many players have pointed out how the new bundle is bordering on being a pay-to-win package which other players who cannot afford it will never access.

Here's all you need to know about Escape from Tarkov's latest The Unheard Edition.

What Is the Unheard Edition of Escape from Tarkov?

As revealed by Battlestate Games, this new bundle, called the Unheard Edition, benefits those who buy it. It has offline play, player-vs-environment (PvE) progression, and comes with all quests, even the future ones that are yet to be released in the regular version. In addition to these, it does not have wipes for the co-operative mode and features unique gear and accessories with exclusive mark and melee weapons, and so many other benefits. As a result, players are calling this Unheard Edition a pay to win model.

The Unheard Edition features many perks that were included in the old Edge of Darkness edition which got removed just a few months ago. But as mentioned above, it comes with unique additions. One of the most talked about feature is the increase in the players' pocket size. This essentially means that players can now fit full mags in their pockets and they get increased skill levels at the start of a wipe.

Here's a list of all the perks featured in the Escape From Tarkov Unheard Edition:

  • Access to PvE co-op mode with persistent progression. Progression will not be reset with wipes;

  • Enhanced stash size (10x72);

  • Increased starting level of character skills;

  • Expanded PMC pockets;

  • Additional equipment and resources in stash;

  • Unique in-game ID;

  • Unique radio-electronic item "Mark of The Unheard";

  • Unique in-game melee weapon;

  • Unique in-game armband;

  • Increased mail retention time;

  • More slots on the Flea Market;

  • Increased Fence standing;

  • Additional main menu background;

  • Free access to all subsequent DLCs (Season pass);

  • Access to the Early Test Server (ETS).

However, the backlash this newest edition is getting is evident. A Twitter user wrote, "I think it's a slap in the face to every EOD owner to release a better version years later. Every single EOD owner should automatically gain access to this version. We are your biggest supporters. Show us some respect."

Another player pointed out, "Putting offline pve progression behind a paywall is scummy."
