Inflexion Games will be holding a server stress test for Nightingale this week.
Players will start receiving access to download the game at 10am Mountain Time / 5pm GMT on February 2, with servers set to open one hour later and the test due to run for three hours.
Invites will be sent in waves, and Inflexion said the goal is to allow all players who signed up for the test to participate.
“Players will enter a tailored version of Nightingale’s early game experience that skips tutorial content and has each Realmwalker equipped with upgraded tools and gear, as well as a variety of recipes unlocked (this will be the equivalent to what a Realmwalker can earn approximately 10 hours into a typical playthrough).”
The test will allow players to join and play the game together with friends ahead of its early access release on February 22.
Nightingale is the first title from Inflexion Games, whose CEO Aaryn Flynn was formerly general manager of BioWare.
It’s described as a “shared-world survival crafting game set within a rich Victorian gaslamp fantasy setting”.
It has players travelling through mystical portals to explore a series of dangerous realms in search of Nightingale, the “last haven of humanity”.
