Nightingale Update Patch Notes 0.1.2 Mar 19 2024

While the Nightingale servers are down, have a read through of the patch notes for the impending update to the Early Access game

Nightingale was eagerly anticipated prior to its wide release into Early Access, but it has stumbled a little since then, with server connectivity issues and numerous bugs. Even still, the developers remain committed to polishing the game to its best build before a final 1.0 release.

This Nightingale update for March 19, 2024 will occur during the server maintenance period, and brings with it a host of bug fixes, gameplay tweaks, and basic QoL improvements.

The complete patch notes are below.
