The Game Awards is a celebration for gaming in the past year, but it’s also a showcase of everything to get excited for in the future. During The Game Awards 2022, Inflexion Games shared the latest look at its upcoming shared-world survival-crafting game, Nightingale. If you’re unfamiliar with the studio, Inflexion Games is an Edmonton, Canada-based studio formed in 2018 by a group of industry veterans. It has since grown to over 100 passionate developers with a range of backgrounds, including AAA, and those new to the industry with previous credits across top franchises like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Wipeout, and Far Cry. Nightingale will be the studio’s first self-published game (supported by Tencent).
The Game Awards 2022 also gave a brand new trailer, presented in partnership with Intel. The latest Nightingale trailer takes players inside the Realmwalker’s Journey, showcasing what drives players to survive the Realms, evolve their skills, and overcome the many perilous challenges of the Faewilds to rebuild the remnants of humanity.
The trailer featured a number of features to get excited for, including caves, gliding, and new creatures. The reveal for caves showcased that lying in the subterranean depths of the Realms, exploration will lead players to a host of discoveries, and danger. Next up, traversal looks flashy with a gliding mechanic where players use their umbrella and glide across the skies of the Fae Realms. This allows players to travel quickly, search with a bird’s-eye view, and avoid or, in more dire circumstances, outrun the dangers lurking in the Realms. And finally, the trailer also showcased new and deadly creatures that players will face including Giants, Elder Eoten, and fire-spitting Bound – each presenting a daunting challenge to any Realmwalkers who cross their path.
Nightingale is currently in Closed Alpha testing with the community. For more information on how to sign-up for Closed Alpha, players can visit the game’s website.
