AMD’s FSR 3 tech has been removed from Nightingale ahead of launch

Inflexion Games has removed AMD’s FSR 3 technology from Nightingale

Nightingale, a new survival adventure game from Inflexion Games, is due to launch tomorrow on Steam. At launch, the game was due to support DLSS 3, XeSS, and FSR 3, but following the game’s server stress tests the developer has decided to remove FSR 3 from Nightingale.

AMD’s FSR 3 technology offers gamers temporal upscaling alongside frame generation. Both of these technologies can dramatically boost the framerates of supported games. Nightingale was due to be one of the first PC games to support AMD’s FSR 3 technology on day-1. Now, the game will be launching with DLSS and XeSS support.

Inflexion Games has stated that they have removed FSR 3 from their game after analysing their Server Stress Test crash data. Many crashes were caused by their FSR 3 integration, even if FSR 3 was not enabled. Simply put, removing FSR 3 support was a quick way for the developer to address these crashes. In time, FSR 3, or another version of FSR, may be re-added to Nightingale.

FSR3 Removal

After reviewing crash data from the Server Stress Test, a significant number of them seemed to point to FSR3 integrations, whether or not users had the setting turned on.

To ensure better stability, we temporarily have removed FSR3 from the launch build and are working with various external and internal teams to see if we can implement it, or an older FSR version, in future updates.

Nightingale will be released through Steam Early Access on January 20th. At launch, the game can run on Valve’s Steam Deck handheld, though the handheld is not officially supported at this time. In time, Nightingale will receive full Steam Deck support and become Steam Deck verified.
