Battlestate Games recently launched a new update for Escape from Tarkov. Patch resolved a number of major issues, especially those involving excessive RAM consumption and raid disconnects.

Previously, the game used so much RAM when running for extended periods and this was caused by some texture memory leaks. It’s a good thing that the company was able to locate and correct the troublesome textures, thus players may no longer experience the problem after updating to the latest version.

Patch also fixed one of the causes of disconnects while loading into a raid in Escape from Tarkov. However, folks at Battlestate Games admit that there’s still some work to be done. They are investigating this matter even further to eliminate all remaining causes of raid disconnects.

This update brought many improvements as well, including support for NVIDIA DLSS 2.5.1 and AMD FSR 2.2.
