“The Day Before” Early Access release ends in disappointment

‚ÄúThe Day Before,‚ÄĚ once the most wishlisted game on Steam, has had a tumultuous journey, culminating in its Early Access release which has been met with significant disappointment. The game, initially marketed as an open-world MMO survival experience, has faced harsh criticism from players for not delivering on its promises.

Promises Unfulfilled and Player Discontent

Developed by Fntastic and released on December 7, the game was anticipated to offer an immersive post-apocalyptic world. However, players quickly realized that it was more of an extraction shooter, similar to ‚ÄúEscape from Tarkov,‚ÄĚ rather than the promised MMO.

This deviation from the advertised gameplay has led to overwhelming negative feedback, with many users calling the game a scam. Accusations focus on the game’s misleading marketing and failure to deliver promised features.

Technical Issues Plague Launch

‚ÄúThe Day Before‚ÄĚ is not only criticized for its misleading genre but also faces numerous technical issues. Players report bugs, performance problems, and server difficulties. Despite peaking at over 38,000 concurrent players initially, the count has drastically fallen. The game‚Äôs current state, even considering it‚Äôs in Early Access, has been deemed far from acceptable by the gaming community.

Controversy Over Marketing and Content

Amidst the negative reviews, further controversy has arisen around Fntastic’s marketing tactics. Many players feel deceived by the game’s promotional material, which showcased features and gameplay not present in the actual release. Additionally, the developer’s decision to delete old trailers from its YouTube channel, which depicted different content, has only fueled the backlash.

A Challenging Road Ahead for Fntastic

With such a rocky start, Fntastic faces a significant challenge in regaining player trust and rectifying the game‚Äôs issues. The disappointment and anger expressed by the community reflect a deep sense of betrayal, as many feel they were sold a concept vastly different from what was delivered. ‚ÄúThe Day Before‚ÄĚ stands as a cautionary tale in the gaming industry about the importance of transparency and meeting player expectations.
