'Nightingale' Developer Partners With Intel To Integrate Xe Super Sampling And Optimized For Intel Arc Graphics

by Rainier on Nov. 30, 2022 @ 1:55 p.m. PST

Nightingale is a shared-world survival crafting game set within a rich Victorian gaslamp fantasy setting.

Nightingale is a first-person, PVE, open-world survival crafting game played solo or cooperatively with friends. 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. 

Thrown into a labyrinth of fantastical and perilous worlds in the wake of a magical cataclysm, players must venture through mystical portals to explore increasingly dangerous realms, in search of the last haven of humanity, Nightingale. 

You are stranded beyond our world, cut off by the collapse of the arcane portal network. This catastrophe has left you fighting to survive in a labyrinth of beautiful and dangerous Fae realms.

Your goal: become a skilled Realmwalker, and navigate the web of transdimensional portals. Only then can you discover your way to the magical city of Nightingale, the last known bastion of humanity.

Nightingale developer Inflexion Games announced a partnership with Intel. In collaboration with the technology company, the Alberta-based developer will officially show off a new trailer and reveal new gameplay features at The Game Awards on Thursday, December 8th. 

Nightingale will release with Intel’s Xe Super Sampling (XeSS) technology, and will be optimized for Intel Arc Graphics. Intel Xe Super Sampling technology (XeSS) integrates AI-enhanced upscaling to unleash more performance with high image fidelity.

Intel is celebrating the Nightingale partnership by announcing “The Ultimate Realmwalker Survival Giveaway.”

Starting today, November 30th, Intel will be unveiling prizes between now and The Game Awards on December 8th. Prizes will include Intel Arc desktop graphics cards, Intel Core desktop processors and more, including a grand prize unveiling on December 8th.

This partnership with Intel supports Inflexion’s vision to create richly-detailed, expansive and immersive virtual worlds.  Along with today's announcement, Inflexion Games recently announced additional visual enhancements thanks to Unreal Engine 5. This includes revamped real-time Global Illumination powered by Lumen, a fully dynamic global illumination and reflection system. 

Inflexion Games has just started Nightingale’s Closed Alpha playtesting. This early stage of testing is limited to a small number of players, who will provide feedback on a number of areas of gameplay. Community members eager to participate in upcoming playtests can register their interest on the official website.

Key Features:

  • Gather & Craft: Craft tools to harvest trees, ore, and plants, along with rarer resources found deep in the realms.
