Nightingale Early Access Delayed

Developer Inflexion Games has announced that the upcoming Early Access for Nightingale has been delayed from its initially planned 2022 release window to the first half of 2023 in order to upgrade the game to Unreal Engine 5 and “to make key improvements, bolster content, and polish gameplay.” The game will launch on PC via Steam.

The full announcement regarding the delay can be seen below:

Realmwalkers,

We’ve made the difficult decision to delay Nightingale‘s Early Access release to the first half of 2023. We’ll have more news on specific timing at a later stage.

The move is based on two considerations: The first is an upgrade to Unreal Engine 5. After reviewing the potential Unreal Engines has to offer, we decided on upgrading now rather than waiting until after release.

Secondly, Inflexion Games is committed to delivering the best possible experience and fulfilling the promise of what Nightingale‘s universe of realms has to offer players. To achieve that the additional time will allow the team to make key improvements, bolster content, and polish gameplay.

In the coming weeks you’ll see more game and development updates from the team. Until then, we thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for what we’re making. It may take a little longer for the mystical Fae portals to open, but we appreciate you taking this journey with us.

The game’s details via the publisher can be seen below:

Nightingale is a first-person, player-versus-environment, open-world survival crafting game played solo or cooperatively with friends. Build, craft, fight, and explore as you venture through mystical portals into a variety of amazing and fantastical realms.

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.
