What do you get when you cross Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us with Ubisoft’s The Division? You get The Day Before, an upcoming MMO that features the best of both apocalyptic worlds in one package [via Altchar].
Developed by FNTASTIC, The Day Before is a fully-fledged MMO experience that draws influence from the likes of The Last of Us and The Division, providing players with a post-pandemic playground to loot and shoot within. The game offers the following synopsis on its Steam page:
“The Day Before is 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.”
The game also has an announcement trailer, which shows off gameplay, which will definitely you of The Division. The almost five-minute video demonstrates how players can use stealth and third-person shooting mechanics to survive, as well as what it’s like to navigate around the game’s tense, zombie-filled environments.
The game’s Steam page also details some of the MMO’s defining features:
- Survive at All Costs – Search abandoned vehicles, houses, and skyscrapers as you scavenge for resources.
- Enter Places No One Else Dares – Crush the infected and other players with realistic weapons, becoming 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’s too late. In the survivor colony, you can sell your loot and communicate safely with other players.
It sounds like this is going to be a treat for MMO veterans and apocalyptic horror fans alike. The game doesn’t currently have a release date, but hopefully, we’ll hear more as its development progresses.
