Hardly any other game is as high on the Steam wishlist as The Day Before. Now, shortly before the release, the developers finally want to give us more insights into the game and its gameplay.
There is a big hype around the new open-world MMO. According to steamDB, The Day Before is actually the second most wanted game on Steam right now.
Set in the post-apocalypse, the third-person survival shooter is already scheduled for release on March 1. However, fans have yet to see any proper unedited gameplay videos. Well, that’s not entirely true:
At the CES in Las Vegas, Nvidia and Fntastic presented a few in-engine impressions in a gameplay reveal, showcasing the latest Nvidia raytracing and DLSS 3 improvements. You can watch this trailer below:
Fntastic promises new The Day Before gameplay for January
The developers want to counteract the impatience and soothe the community with new footage from the game in light of the approaching release date of The Day Before. They announced on Discord that they will show brand new raw gameplay in January (source: Reddit.com).
At the same time, they apologized to the community for the long wait and emphasized that they have now received permission to show more scenes. The upcoming videos will provide a comprehensive look at the gameplay elements, features, and development status of The Day Before.
So the fumbling in the dark will end very soon because up to now, there was not much information about The Day Before game besides links to social media accounts and the invitation to wishlist the title on Steam.
What we know about the game so far
The Day Before is set in a huge world in America that has been completely destroyed as a result of a pandemic and is now populated by innumerable infected people. You take on the role of a survivor and fight for important resources, cars, and weapons that will ensure your survival and that of your companions. You can’t remember what America used to be like – what counts is only your survival in the here and now. Besides the exciting Co-op experience with friends, the game will also feature an online PvP mode for competitive fun.
The developers of The Day Before have postponed the release date from mid-2022 to March 1, 2023. Already two years in development, it’s been a year since the last official trailer of the survival MMO. But even then, the trailer made a very promising impression on the fans thanks to the underlying Unreal Engine 5:
On which platforms will the game come out, and is it crossplay?
The Day Before will be released initially for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. But that also brings us directly to the next important question, which is certainly on the minds of many fans: Will the game also support crossplay / cross-platform features? Unfortunately, there is still no official announcement from the developers on this. However, it is a very popular mechanic these days to maintain high player numbers in multiplayer and provides additional freedom in deciding who to play with. In this regard, we want to remain confident that this function will come and keep you posted.
