'Nightingale' Server Stress Test Planned In Early 2024 Ahead Of Early Access Launch

by Rainier on Nov. 29, 2023 @ 2:40 p.m. PST

Nightingale is a shared-world survival crafting game set within a rich Victorian gaslamp fantasy setting.

Nightingale is a first-person, PVE, open-world survival crafting game played solo or cooperatively with friends. Explore alone or band together with other survivors, obtaining valuable materials to construct settlements, and craft vital tools and weaponry as you fight against deadly monstrosities and the Fae, humanity’s magical rivals. 

Thrown into a labyrinth of fantastical and perilous worlds in the wake of a magical cataclysm, players must venture through mystical portals to explore increasingly dangerous realms, in search of the last haven of humanity, Nightingale. 

You are stranded beyond our world, cut off by the collapse of the arcane portal network. This catastrophe has left you fighting to survive in a labyrinth of beautiful and dangerous Fae realms.

Your goal: become a skilled Realmwalker, and navigate the web of transdimensional portals. Only then can you discover your way to the magical city of Nightingale, the last known bastion of humanity.

In preparation for the upcoming Early Access (via Steam and the Epic Games Store) launch, Inflexion Games are inviting all aspiring Realmwalkers to help “break the portal network” as the devs stress-test the Nightingale servers in early 2024.

"We welcome everyone to sign up for the event as it will give players eagerly anticipating the release of Nightingale a taste of the Realms before they officially open on February 22, 2024."

How to Participate:

To sign up for the playtest, all you need to do is click the “Request Access” button on our Steam page under the “Nightingale Playtest” section: Steam page.

This stress test is completely separate from any previous playtesting you may have been a part of. If you previously completed a playtesting survey or received playtesting keys, they WILL NOT grant you access to the stress test. You must sign up for the playtest on our Steam page to ensure you’re eligible.

You do not need to buy a copy of the game to participate in the stress test - participation is completely free for you!

Key Dates and Times:

In January, we'll be going into more detail about the stress test, including final information on the date and times, as well as confirming the maximum number of participants. Be sure to keep an eye out for emails, our socials, and/or Discord for more information as it becomes available.

What to Expect:

There are no bad outcomes to this test. Whether it’s all smooth connections, or the servers catch fire, the team will gain valuable information to prepare for the Early Access launch in February.

We hope that all participants can connect to the Realms and enjoy the first couple of hours of the game without interruption. However, it may be that all or some participants might experience longer than usual connection times, or may not be able to connect at all. Whatever happens, we’ll be with you the whole way, communicating through the Official Discord [join here].

Nightingale’s  Early Access will mark the beginning of a shared journey towards full release. Continuing to work directly with the community, Inflexion Games will regularly iterate and improve the game, adding new content along the way. Early Access gives players a chance to participate in development and it gives the team a unique opportunity to explore new ideas with a live community.

Key Features:

  • Survive The Realms: Prepare to make your way through Faewild forests, harrowing swamps, shimmering deserts, and shadowy jungles as you unlock the portals leading deeper into the lands of Fae. Cook meals, build shelter and muster the spirit to persevere in the face of adversity.
  • Gather & Craft: Craft tools to harvest trees, ore, and plants, along with rarer resources found deep in the realms. Discover new schematics and assemble the equipment and weapons you need to survive. Using specialized ingredients and arcane technologies, you can enhance your gear with magical properties.
  • Build & Manage: Design and construct an impressive estate from a variety of styles and tilesets. Upgrade and customize your structures, and form communities to safely live off the land. You can even recruit NPC workers to help expand your homestead, automate production, and assist in resource gathering.
  • Explore & Discover: Freely roam expansive realms, where stunning visuals will transport you into a mystical Gaslamp Fantasy world. Find the abandoned remnants of past Realmwalker expeditions, investigate mysterious Fae architecture, and scout derelict ruins. Through every new portal, beauty and danger await you in equal measure.
  • Co-op Or Solo: Adventure solo, or play cooperatively with your friends in an online shared-world realmscape. Combine your strengths, skills, and resources to survive and thrive together. Work together to build communal estates, join up in uncovering the mysteries of the realms, and unite in facing the challenges of the Fae.
  • Deadly Encounters: Craft and wield a variety of melee weapons and firearms in first-person combat. Confront the fearsome creatures that lurk in the portal network. Fend off incursions by the twisted Fae mimicries of humanity known only as the Bound. Join other players against colossal apex creatures in the deepest reaches of the realms.

Nightingale is in development for PC (Steam/Epic Games Store).
