Update (Thu 5th May, 2022): Remember this? The Day Before is still coming to Xbox Series X and Series S, but it's undergoing some changes ahead of release, with the game switching to Unreal Engine 5 for development.

That means the initial release date for The Day Before is now set for March in 2023, and that'll seemingly be the PC version first. Here's what the development team had to say in a statement shared with IGN earlier today:

"Feeling and understanding the great responsbility that we face, with enormous gratitude in our hearts, we're pleased to announce that The Day Before is switching to the new Unreal Engine 5 technology!

The transition to a more advanced and adapted open worlds engine, will make the gameplay of The Day Before even more fantastic."

Original story (Sat 16th Oct, 2021): Earlier this year, you might recall hearing about The Day Before - a new open-world zombie-themed survival MMO for PC. The good news is it's now been confirmed for the Xbox Series X|S during an update from the team at 'Fntastic'.

The trailer below gives us a look at the game's combat, looting system, vehicles and social areas. A release date has also been set for the PC version - revealing how it will be arriving in June next year.

The final reveal of the Fntastic's broadcast was 'Propnight' - a multiplayer physics-based prop hunt mixed with classic horror survival. At the moment, it's been locked in for PC.
