THE GRAFICAL PART

This subsection of our review highlights the main graphical aspects of this game. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphic settings and the quality of development of the main visual aspects.

SUPPORTED OS AND GRAPHICS API

The Day Before is supported on Windows 10/11.

steam 

The preferred and primary graphics API for The Day Before is DX12 .

GAME ENGINE
 
The Day Before received significant criticism upon its release. Developed by Fntastic, it suffered many difficulties during development, including repeated release delays, disappearance from Steam due to a trademark dispute, and accusations that it was a scam.
 
TheDayBefore 2023 12 08 11 07 49 919

On Steam, the game received an "overwhelmingly negative" rating, with only 15% positive reviews. Players have expressed disappointment that the game deviates significantly from its original marketing concept as an open-world MMO survival game. Instead, they say, it is a poor imitation of "Tom Clancy's The Division", with gameplay based on resource extraction and returning to base rather than the promised open-world survival elements.

TheDayBefore 2023 12 08 11 26 02 642

Players also reported that the game did not live up to the promises of a fast-paced and immersive experience as stated in the trailers. The world is described as empty and lifeless, with uninspired design and a lack of depth and complexity in gameplay, resulting in a shallow and monotonous experience.

TheDayBefore 2023 12 08 11 15 59 180

Specific technical issues were also highlighted, such as the lack of basic functions such as jumping over obstacles, directional sound and melee combat. Some users have even reported problems with basic game settings, such as changing screen resolution. Additionally, there have been complaints about the poor quality of loot and the disappearance of enemies, which interferes with resource collection.

TheDayBefore 2023 12 08 11 43 17 277

In terms of graphics and game engine, The Day Before switched to Unreal Engine 5 during development, but did not live up to the expectations placed on this advanced engine. The graphics and game mechanics were not up to expected standards, which contributed to the overall disappointment.

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

Minimum graphics settings reduce detail and disable many graphical effects to improve performance, while maximum settings enable all available effects and provide the highest level of detail and quality.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment:

  Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080 , 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with ultra graphics quality settings, scaling upscales were not used.

GPU TEST

TheDayBefore 2023 12 08 13 26 38 616 TheDayBefore 2023 12 08 13 26 53 479

In the video card test, the default resolution is 1920x1080; other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most powerful CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by Radeon RX 6700 XT or GeForce RTX 2080 solutions .

At a resolution  of 2560x1440, an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the  Radeon RX 6600 or GeForce RTX 2060 level . A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the Radeon RX 6600 or GeForce RTX 2060 level . A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by Radeon RX 6800 or GeForce RTX 3080 solutions .

At a resolution  of 3840x2160,  an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the  Radeon RX 6800 or GeForce RTX 3070 level . A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the Radeon RX 6800 or GeForce RTX 4070 level . A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by GeForce RTX 4090 solutions .

VIDEO MEMORY CONSUMPTION

aft

Testing of video memory consumed by the game was carried out by  MSI Afterburner. The indicator was based on results on video cards from AMD and NVIDIA at resolutions of  1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with various anti-aliasing settings. By default, the graph displays the most current solutions. Other video cards are added and removed from the chart at the request of the reader.

RAM TEST

sys

The test was carried out on the basic configuration of Core i 9 13900K with 32 GB DDR5 6400 MHz pre-installed memory. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test for the entire system was carried out on various video cards without launching third-party applications (browsers, etc.). In the graphics, you can add and remove any resolutions and video cards as desired.
