A unique journey awaits you in the post-apocalyptic survival game. A deadly pandemic has hit the East Coast of the USA, which is very reminiscent of the story of the cover shooter “The Division”. But “The Day Before” is a little more than just a shooter.
What about PvP? It does exist. You not only fight for survival with other players, but also against them. According to Steam, there will be both an online PvP mode and a co-op mode.
The trailer for “The Day Before” promises interesting gameplay:
What is the story about? The story of The Day Before is about a post-apocalyptic version of the USA and takes place in the city of New Fortune. This is modeled on New York City.
After a pandemic, infected people who have become a kind of zombies are omnipresent there. Your task is to fight against these zombies and of course survive as long as possible.
To be successful, you not only have to defend yourself, but also find valuable resources such as water and food as well as allies. You can find the latter among the survivors of the Woodberry colony. Together with them, you should help rebuild society – but that poses some challenges.
What features does the game offer? So far, The Day Before video trailers have given a good idea of what features the game offers. Although the gameplay and open world are fundamental to AAA titles like Division 1 and 2, The Day Before takes things a step further.
The Day Before system requirements
“The Day Before” is based on Unreal Engine 5, but the recommended requirements are rather moderate.
With this information you are now perfectly prepared to enter the challenging world of The Day Before next Thursday, December 7th, 2023.
