And whereas the seems at The Day Before thus far have included loads of tense motion, there shall be locations of security, specifically the Woodberry Survivor Colony, the place gamers “can interact with other players, join groups, talk to some residents, take quests and have fun. We have an idea to make various events inside the colony during the holidays, so that the players get closer to each other and spend time celebrating holidays together.” As the brand new trailer reveals, you will additionally have the ability to discover temporary bits of respite in additional hostile territory to camp, sleep, cook dinner, and usually chill out earlier than heading again out into a brutal world.
As for precise base constructing itself, the builders defined that basic, resource-based “building a hut out of stones and sticks” isn’t a lot what evokes them as one thing extra akin to Nintendo’s Animal Crossing.
