The Nightingale Handbook Navigating the Mystical Realms

Learn the basics in our Nightingale Handbook Navigating the Mystical Realms.


Nightingale drops into early access on Steam on February 20th, two days earlier than previously announced. While Nightingale might just be another early-access survival crafting game, there's a lot to love already about this plucky title.

When Does Nightingale Early Access Launch

launch times no graphics

Thankfully we have a lovely graphic to show us when the game goes live. So, no need to read what we have to say, just look at that. If you do, however, it comes out at 5pm in London, 9am in LA, midday in New York, 2am in Tokyo, and 4am in Sydney.

Nightingale Cost and Platforms

Nightingale is set to cost $30 but the Store page on Steam isn't currently live for pre-sales. As for platforms, it's Steam and Epic only for now, but we have more details about PS5, Xbox, and Game Pass in our respective articles.

Nightingale Gameplay

It's easier to show, rather than tell here so… let's just take a look at the extended 8-minutes of gameplay:

In the most basic form, Nightingale is a survival crafting game. You can play solo or with friends, but you probably know the basics of the game already. The most unique aspect of Nightingale is the setting (you can find out more about that above). Build a base, craft some stuff, and fight some other stuff. Add some friends, fight off some bosses and you have a good time.
