Nightingale has been released in early access since February 20, but players are only able to log on if they are connected to the internet. The devs have announced that this might change soon, and here is everything you need to know. 

Nightingale is a PvE open-world survival game created by devs who worked on Mass Effect. It’s been released in early access to relative success, and currently, you need to be online to play it

Some players have questioned this decision, especially because you are able to play both solo and with friends. Needing an online connection for multiplayer makes sense, but if you want to play solo, players have felt that you should be able to go offline too. 

On February 22, the Nightingale devs released a note that spoke to the possibility of an offline mode coming soon. 

Originally, devs wanted early access Nightingale to be online only so they could focus on the cooperative aspects of the game. They wanted to choose between this and offline mode while the game was in early access, and multiplayer won the decision. 

Since player feedback, however, they are planning to change their approach. “Looking back on that decision, we misjudged what some of you were looking for in your experience. We are now prioritizing and developing an offline mode that we plan to release as soon as feasible,” they said

While they have not given a specific date that offline mode will become available, they have promised that they will update players on their progress on their official Discord and other social media channels. 

The devs also said that this doesn’t mean work on other aspects of the game will stop, but only that offline mode will be put on the list of aspects of Nightingale they are planning to bring to the players.
