The Day Before has been soaked in controversy over the past few months with reports alleging that the zombie survival game was a scam due to its downgrades, failure to deliver on promises and questionably delayed updates from developer Fntastic. However, the studio has now come forward to quell the flames by announcing a beta that is set to arrive before the game launches this November. Additionally, the developers also assured fans that it will return to Steam.
After climbing to the top of Steam’s most wish-listed games, The Day Before quickly gained traction in the community due to its promises of a vast open-world with MMO elements. Initial gameplay trailers showed a pretty fun time, all things considered, but it wasn’t until new gameplay emerged that players quickly noticed the massive visual downgrades and bizarrely long development periods with Fntastic claiming copyright issues with the title was the reason behind its recent massive eight-month delay.

Fntastic has now provided an update on The Day Before, claiming that a beta is currently in the works with plans to return the game to Steam after it was removed from the platform earlier this year. The full statement reads:
“We understand that many of you have been eagerly waiting for the release of this game, and we want to thank you for your patience and support throughout the development process. We have been working hard to ensure that the game meets our high standards, and we are confident that it will be worth the wait. As we get closer to the release date, we will be conducting a beta test for the game. This will give players the opportunity to try out the game before it is released and provide valuable feedback that we can use to improve the final product.”
In a follow-up statement, Fntastic stated, “And for those wondering if the game [is] gonna be on Steam, it should be on Steam, yes. Team is working on it.”
Finally, Fntastic confirmed that The Day Before is on track to release on 10 November “without further delay.” We’ll keep on eye on that.
