Days Before developer Fantastic has re-emerged with news of a beta test for its highly anticipated but stalled zombie MMO, ahead of its full release on November 10th.
As a reminder, The Day Before was originally scheduled to be released in March, before its launch was delayed. In a bizarre series of events, it was revealed that Fantastical had failed to trademark the game’s name, which has since been contested by the company behind a calendar app. All trace of the game was later removed from Steam and since then, little has been heard of it.
However, the day before has resurfaced, with word from an admin on the game’s official Discord that a beta is now in the pipeline.
The Fantasik spokesperson, known as Kenten, had the following to say:
“We understand that many of you have been looking forward to the release of this game, and we want to thank you for your patience and support during the development process… We’re working hard to make sure Working hard to make sure the game meets our high standards.” , and we believe it will be worth the wait.”
Kenton stated that the team would conduct a beta test for the game “closer to the release date”, although he did not give a time frame for this.
“This will give players an opportunity to try out the game before it’s released and provide valuable feedback we can use to improve the final product,” Kenton wrote, before adding:
“And for those wondering if the game is going to be on Steam, it should be on Steam, yes the team is working on it.”
Kenten then assured that for those still holding out hope for the game, The Day Before would be officially released on November 10 “without any further delay”.
Earlier this year, Fantastical faced criticism for its lack of transparency, with many suggesting that The Day Before was some kind of scam.
The developer denied these claims, saying: “When the game comes out, people will finally see the truth.”
