Meet The Culprit: Unreal Engine 5

The fabulous Unreal Engine 5 is a beautiful platform for developers. Initially revealed in May 2020, the platform handles every new console in the market —Xbox S|X and PS5. Firstly, it features a lot of cool things like Nanite, an engine that lets high detail photo source materials be imported into the games; this allows for ultra-realistic detail. The results are fantastic if you couple that with Quilex, a photogrammetry library of gigantic proportions.

If you add too many other aspects of Unreal Engine 5, you will get an incredible detail that will give players a new perspective on next-generation gaming. But there’s a caveat, the switch that The Day Before developer did to this platform is the reason for the delay, and that delay sets the game back a whole year! Is it worth it? We’ll have to wait and see. After all, there are many other games out there.

Game Premise

The Day Before is a massively multiplayer online game that embarks players into a vast world for exploration and adventure. On top of that, they must kill zombies, do some foraging and gathering, seek out a colony, shoot each other much more. The massive environment and hyper-realistic graphics allow for the exploration of empty malls, streets, and the vast wilderness. Think of “The Last of Us” and “The Division,” put that in a blender, and get this game. Well, that’s if it ever comes out. After all, it’s delayed for a long time.

Trailers Under Fire

The trailers and gameplay offered by Fntastic to the press have been under fire by critics all over the internet. And while the trailers offer some excellent graphics, its mostly tailored to a trailer. We don’t see much of it. On top of it, we know how the user interface was put on top of the gameplay video, made up of sequences that were there to lead us away from what we wanted.

And that’s the release date. As I said before, gamers are a tough crowd to please. And you can’t fool around with them. Their philosophy is “f*ck around and find out,” they’re a very organized community that can king or topple an entire project with the blink of an eye —or, be precise, the click of a button.

The Day Before Is Delayed By Almost 1 Year

The game was supposed to be released on PC on June 21. The Day Before has been postponed until March 1, 2023, due to Fntastic’s transition to Epic’s new technology. It’s a lengthy wait, but given what the fifth Unreal Engine is capable of, it might be worth it. Nonetheless, the developer kept the announcement brief. The developer describes the delay in the announcement as a result of feeling the pressure of trying to wow millions of interested players. The game’s graphics were already looking good, but the change should be noticeable.

Regardless of the delays, Expectant players on Steam won’t erase the game from their wishlists. And as soon as the game drops, gamers will pick it up, whether to comment on how late it was for Fntastic to come up with a good product or praise it. You know how it is with gamers. If they don’t like a title, they just pick up another! With this, we conclude our coverage of this delayed game here at Otakukart.
