The Day Before is an upcoming MMO set in post-pandemic America, where players explore an open-world overrun by zombie-like infected inhabitants. After entering into a trademark dispute, which led to the removal of its Steam page, The Day Before is still one of the most anticipated new games for 2023. Here’s everything you need to know about the delayed survival MMO from the perspective of 4GamesHub.com.
The Day Before’s release date is now November 10, 2023, after a delay of ten months, originally scheduled for March 1, 2023. The game was previously delayed when Fntastic missed a June 2022 window to shift development to Unreal Engine 5.
Fntastic faced a trademark dispute over the game’s name, leading to the delay of both the game and any new footage. The studio says it was only recently made aware of claims against the studio’s use of the trademarked name and is working to “solve everything.”
The Day Before is set to land on PC at launch, with Fntastic also exploring the possibility of The Day Before Xbox Series X/S and PS5 releases. It’s not yet clear when console versions will be ready.
Unreal Engine 5:
The decision to move the development of the project onto Unreal Engine 5 caused the delayed release of The Day Before. Fntastic stated that the move to the “more advanced and adapted open worlds engine will make the gameplay of The Day Before even more fantastic.”
The Day Before Trailer:
The first reveal trailer for The Day Before showed us a gameplay demo of the MMO, with a guided tour of some locations complete with narration, gunfights against the infected, and PvP action. A recent trailer showed off some of the post-pandemic settings’ environments with ray-tracing.
The first gameplay footage of The Day Before was released back in January, after a delay of the trademark dispute. The gameplay footage raised more questions than answers, leaving gamers eager for more information.
The delayed release of The Day Before has made it one of the most discussed upcoming PC games, and its open-world survival game with zombie-like infected inhabitants and the potential for Xbox Series X/S and PS5 releases has kept its fans waiting eagerly.
