The upcoming open-world zombie survival game The Day Before finally has a new release date set for December 7th, 2023. Originally revealed in 2021, the game became massively hyped but was delayed multiple times. Now it’s coming to Early Access on Steam later this year.
As a player, you’ll be able to explore the post-apocalyptic streets of a detailed New York City, scavenging for supplies to survive against infected humans and other players. The gameplay focuses heavily on crafting, combat, driving vehicles, and completing quests to earn the in-game currency Woodberry Coins.
Scavenge Supplies to Survive
In The Day Before, you need to actively collect valuable loot and resources. Search abandoned buildings and shelters for food, water, weapons, ammo, and more. Manage hunger, thirst, health, and other stats to stay alive.
Restore Society in Settlements
Work together with other players in central settlements like Woodberry, which acts as a hub. Here you can use earned coins to buy crucial supplies from traders. Slowly rebuild society by completing tasks.
Deadly Infected and Ruthless Survivors
Not only will you face vicious infected humans as relentless enemies, but fellow survivors are equally dangerous foes. They may attack to steal your valuable supplies and vehicles.
Modify Weapons and Vehicles
Find weapon parts while scavenging to customize and improve guns. Also locate working vehicles, fixing them up to travel more safely through the huge open world.
Purchase a Personal Ranch
As you progress, spend coins to decorate your own instanced ranch house, displaying trophies and housing vehicles.
