While the game has succeeded in the most-wanted competition, it has not been without its challenges. The Day Before has encountered copyright disputes and delays, marking a tumultuous development cycle. Originally targeting a November 11 release, the game has now set its sights on December 7, 2023, leaving fans with a mix of anticipation and concerns about the game's eventual release.
According to the developer, The Day Before will be a playable multiplayer experience, allowing players to immerse themselves in the post-apocalyptic landscape of New Fortune City. The game invites players to engage in realistic weapon-based combat, complete quests, build shelters, purchase vehicles, and confront challenges posed by deadly infected entities. Fntastic emphasizes its commitment to shaping the game based on its vision, highlighting the player's freedom in crafting their post-pandemic survival experience.
In this world, players will explore tall skyscrapers, business centers, massive malls, grand stadiums, and more. The game encourages players to join the Woodberry survivor colony and participate in the construction of private homes in designated safe zones. As The Day Before approaches its release on December 7, fans appear to be looking forward to experiencing the post-apocalyptic world of this survival MMO.
