Reloaded Studios' CryENGINE 2-powered MMORPG, The Day, is a third-person action MMOG set in the near future. Mankind discovered a way to travel between two connected parallel worlds where players will travel back and forth between the past and present, accomplishing critical missions that extremely influence and affect their present-day world.

In the near future, mankind makes two scientific discoveries that dramatically alter the world. The first is the wormhole, which allows people to travel between two parallel worlds; the second is genomic transfer, which gives humans unlimited travel across time – past and future. Political forces soon harness these discoveries and use them to their own ends; altering everything in the past, including human DNA and the Earth’s resources, which in turn horribly mutates mankind’s past and future. People in the future are unaware of this seismic change, but gradually learn the truth; causing anti-government forces to band together and war to break out. After years of fighting, the leader of the resistance discovers that there is a parallel world that is also embroiled in warfare; the discovery of which leads to an expansion of both wars across both worlds – with the future of mankind at stake.

Players are faced with multiple worlds to fight in, including battles in the past, whose outcomes affect the future world that they come from. Not only must they battle the enemy in the field, they also must determine who amongst their fellow soldiers are friends – and who are traitors.

However, whatever decisions they make in the past affect the world as they know it (“New Day”) in ways they can’t anticipate.
