Nightingale guide

As the Nightingale release date is here, players should get ready to mine, craft, and survive in a monstrous Victorian universe with our handy guides.

Puck, our trusty guide that Victorian builders and crafters are due to become acquainted with following the Nightingale release date.

Need a list of Nightingale guides to get started? Nightingale is an open-world survival game from Inflexion Games, and like similar games in its genre, there’s plenty of gathering and building. However, what sets Nightingale apart is the assortment of procedurally generated magical realms and its roguelite card system, supported by a post-apocalyptic gaslamp fantasy story set in a parallel universe.

There’s so much to learn when you first dive into the alt-Victorian survival game, so here’s an overview of everything we know about Nightingale, including a list of guides for beginners just getting started, and for those well into Nightingale, more extensive breakdowns on how to get the most out of the game.

Nightingale release date

Nightingale released in early access on Tuesday, February 20, 2024 on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store. Unfortunately for console users, an FAQ page on the official website confirms that Nightingale is “currently PC only”. While this doesn’t rule out the possibility of it arriving on console in the future, it’s unlikely to happen any time soon. On this basis, it’s unlikely that we’ll see Nightingale on Game Pass for the foreseeable future.

Nightingale story

In Nightingale’s alternate reality, humans have been living together with the magical ‘Fae’ for centuries. During that time, the humans learned how to use magic and created a magical city called Nightingale. This city hosts portals that serve as gateways to other realms.

Unfortunately, the realms have been struck by a calamity known as The Pale. The survivors, scattered across different realms, are now trying to make their way back to Nightingale, believing the city to be the only place that may withstand The Pale.
