The Day Before has given a lot to talk about since it was released. The game, announced last 2021, kept a very low profile until 2023, where all the drama around his figure has occurred in just 4 months. Russian development has spun one controversy after another, although it seeks to rebuild itself and for this they have announced a closed beta pre launch to convince the most doubtful.
Fntastic, the game development studio, knows that it is in a difficult situation. As far as we know, the Russians are not giving in and are still embroiled in legal disputes to claim the name of the game, which turned out not to be legally theirs. Now, to clean up his image a bit and keep a more open attitude, and taking into account that he is still banished from steamhas shared this decision on Discord.
Thus, the zombie MMO will have a closed beta prior to launch, although it has not been highlighted when it will arrive. As the Russians have commented, “As we get closer to the release date, we will beta test the game. This will give players the opportunity to test the game before its release and provide valuable feedback that we can use to improve the game.” Final product”.
Taking into account that its launch is still scheduled for November of this 2023, there is no certainty that we will be able to test it in the summer of this year. Of course, at the moment we do not even know if we can play it on Steam. To the community’s question about the absence of the game on the Valve platform, the Russians from Fntastic have responded with a little enlightening “the team is working on it“.
It’s not unthinkable that The Day Before will leave Steam and release independently, following a similar model to Escape From Tarkov, or perhaps opt to try its luck on the Epic Games Store, although legal issues would prevent it from making deals with any company. However, launching outside of Steam would imply one more slab on the heads of your study, and that is that the Valve platform gives the possibility of obtaining refundsread reviews and keep a active conversation with the community. And we are talking about a game that will be looked at with a magnifying glass.
