Zombies? Check. Surviving in a post-apoc world? Check. Guns to shoot? Yup. Plenty of familiar tropes are present and accounted for in the upcoming open-world MMO The Day Before, but it’s still worth a moment to cast a spotlight on the upcoming title because that’s just what we do here at MOP. Also, at least visually speaking, this one looks pretty sharp.
Allow the game’s official blurb to set the scene:
“Welcome to The Day Before, an open-world MMO survival set in a deadly, post-pandemic America overrun by flesh-hungry infected and survivors killing each other for food, weapons, and cars. You wake up alone in a world you no longer remember, setting out to find answers and the resources to survive.”
Being a survival game, players will need to scavenge this open world, checking in cars, houses, and skyscrapers for resources. The Day Before also touts combat with realistic weapons as players take on infected zombies and one another, a detailed world that can be explored using vehicles, and a central hub where players can safely communicate with one another as well as sell any found loot.
The Day Before has no release date set yet, but it does have a Steam page for those who want to wishlist it in the meantime. There’s also a gameplay preview below replete with cringe-filled dialogue between two players trying to replicate how gamers talk to one another while not sounding like they’re reading from a script.
