It’s another game for fans of survival, co-op base builders game, as Nightingale is set to hit early access in the future.


Well, it looks like we’re getting a survival adventure game, with a sci-fi, Victorian twist. Nightingale has been revealed at the Game Awards, and it will certainly be one for fans of the genre. Described at the event as a “shared-world survival crafting game set in a dark take on the Victorian era”. We’re certainly excited.

As you can see from the trailer above, the game certainly has an interesting look; and the contrasting aesthetic of the player models vs the horrifying creatures has us interested. The game will feature a “robust” crafting system. With players able to collect crafting materials to build settlements and farm crops to grow their community.

This is the first game by the new studio Inflexion Games (formerly Improbable Canada), the Canadian division of the UK-based technology company Improbable. The team is based out of Edmonton, Canada, and is made up of a number of former Bioware developers.

From the game’s official website:

“You are stranded beyond our world, cut off by the sudden collapse of the arcane portal network. This catastrophic event has left you – and countless others – fighting to survive in a labyrinth of mysterious and perilous realms. Prepare for a journey of adventure, danger, and discovery – as you search for a way back to the last haven of humanity, Nightingale.“

Very little else is known about the game other than it’s coming to PC in 2022; with an Alpha and Beta test coming before. As of now, there are no plans for a console release of the game, with the developer focused on the PC release.
