Bracknell, UK, 17th July 2012– They are not born of flesh, but rather, they are intelligent machines, given life by “The Core”. They are the X’or, and they are shrouded in mystery. Today, Kalypso Media and Novacore Studios are giving gamers a first-hand look at this race of machines, which are featured in the upcoming 4X space title, Legends of Pegasus. The new trailer, available below, offers an in-depth look at the X’or, including their ships, worlds and motivations. Are they friend or foe? Players will find out in August when Legends of Pegasus is released.
In the 23rd century, mankind made tremendous progress colonizing the vast extents of space. Man built huge spaceships, colonized new planets and even used terraforming to transform uninhabitable worlds. Soon, new races were also discovered. The first contact was friendly and peaceful. But peace can be deceptive…
Legends of Pegasus takes you on an epic journey into space and mixes real-time and turn-based strategy. Players will expand their civilisation in the galaxy by colonising new planets, building factories, laboratories and shipyards, researching new technologies and designing new spacecrafts to keep on exploring new galaxies. Battles are played in real-time and decided not only by your tactical skills, but also by your strategic decisions and the design and equipment of your ships.
Legends of Pegasus offers a massive single player campaign, during which the player will discover three very different races. Multiplayer features Internet or LAN gameplay, against Human or AI opponents. If you like designing your own game yourself, numerous modding options will certainly make you all the happier. The spectacular 3D graphics don’t just bring life to marvellous planets, but also to the stunning spaceships you can freely design thanks to an intuitive building system.
Legends of Pegasus is now available to Pre Order from Steam. For more information, please visit www.legendsofpegasus.com or www.facebook.com/LegendsofPegasus
