Developer Fntastic and publisher MyTona have announced that their open-world survival massively multiplayer online game, The day before, will be released alongside the previously announced PC version on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.
While the PC version has been given a release date of June 22, 2022, The day before for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S has yet to be dated.
First announced in January this year, The day before is set in post-pandemic America where the “meat-hungry” infected and “survivors” battle it out for food and resources (no, you’re not reading the description of The last of us plural).
An official overview reads:
The Day Before is an open world massively multiplayer online survival game set in a deadly, post-pandemic America overrun by meat-hungry infected and survivors killing each other for food, weapons and cars. You wake up alone in a world you don’t remember, looking for answers and the means to survive.
- Survive at all costs – Search abandoned vehicles, houses and skyscrapers as you search for resources.
- Enter places no one else dares – Crush the infected and other players with realistic weapons and become a legend of the new world.
- Discover the vast post-pandemic world – Explore beautiful yet dangerous places with stunningly detailed vehicles.
- Find a colony of survivors – Take part in the restoration of the former society before it is too late. In the surviving colony, you can sell your loot and safely communicate with other players.
