Nightingale Is New Game Ex-BioWare GM Aaryn Flynn's New Studio

The new shared-world survival game debuted during The Game Awards


A new studio helmed by Aaryn Flynn of BioWare fame has unveiled its first title at The Game Awards, as Improbable and Inflexion Games have revealed Nightingale, a game of survival in multiple realms.

Nightingale sets players on the journey of the Realmwalker where they must survive across the myriad of increasingly dangerous realms. 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.

Nightingale will see players travel through portals between worlds in order to gather resources and materials, with the danger increasing as they continue to travel. The game's world will also be shared among all of the players, with forests, swamps, and deserts among the terrains they will encounter.

"From the beginning, we knew we wanted to build an intricate fantasy setting as rich and full of history and life as anything we’ve worked on in the past," Inflexion Games CEO Aaryn Flynn said in the official release. "The realms of Nightingale are vast and have many secrets to uncover, and we cannot wait for players to start discovering them."

Nightingale is currently slated for an early access release for PC in 2022. Closed beta testing is set to begin in the next few months, with players able to register for the beta at the game's official website.
