The MOP Up: The Day Before’s romantic apocalypse


Massively OP reader Lily tipped us off that The Day Before’s devs recently sat down with WCCFTech for an interview about this upcoming survival MMO. It definitely sounds as though those making the game have a love affair with the setting.

The Day Before features a large open world that you can freely navigate both on foot and by car without any loading screens,” described Ed Gotovtsev. “The focus is on the big city and its surroundings, but players will also be able to explore farms, vast meadows, small settlements, majestic forests, and snow-capped mountains. It is a hand-detailed world aiming to convey the romance of the post-apocalypse and in which players could live their own stories.”
