Legends of Pegasus Trailer – The X’or

By on July 18th, 2012 1:03 pm

Legends of Pegasus - The X'or

This new Legends of Pegasus trailer presents the X’or, presumably one of the games’ three playable races.

This is an interesting trailer that provides a few more glimpses on LoP’s gameplay elements. But, the real aim and core of the trailer is to present the X’or faction background story. Spoilers ahead. The X’or seem to be a hive mind kind of faction; a highly technological and emotionless mechanical species that has long forgotten their origins and is on a never ending pursuit for knowledge. They seem to be mostly observers and explorers, always on the lookout for new artifacts and new technologies left by long lost and powerful civilizations. In their searches they seem to have met one of these all-powerful ancient races …

Legends of Pegasus is a new space 4X game by Novacore Studios and Kalypso Media and is targeted for release this August 10th. Hope to have more news for you guys before the official release. In the meantime, the X’or.

    After I saw the X’or trailer. I wanted to buy it instantly.

    Odd, I had a couple of laughs from this, which I’m sure were not intended. There’s nothing new in terms of gameplay either, but way too much talking.

  3. Keith Turner says:

    Shortly before two minutes in, the ship building menu appears a little more complex than in prior versions. I had seen it in the most recent pack of screenshots, but now I’ve seen it in motion. It could be different than the prior system because the X’or ships are designed differently that the humans, I’m not sure. It does look a little… messy though. All of those red circles outside of the ship don’t make a whole lot of sense to me when the components are being installed onto the ship itself. Hopefully it makes a lot more sense when the game is being played.

    Also, I have a great fear that the research is going to be somewhat uninspired based on the brief glimmer of it shown around 2:43. A lot of techs giving +2% bonuses whose names all end in “I”. That leads me to believe we will be seeing a lot of +X% gains coinciding with II, III, IV, etc. I’m not sure that having 2000 techs in the game is worthwhile if these are the kind of techs we’ll be getting. I really hope I am wrong about this.

    Looks amazing. Can’t wait for my pre-ordered copy to arrive.

    Incredibly boring. It just shows footage we already saw before coupled with some artwork…
    The little interest I had in this is quickly fading away. What about releasing some actual gameplay footage or at least opening the beta tests so every one who pre-order can access the beta and then let them post publicly on how good/bad it is and even release some videos?
    Seems like they are about to release a sub-par product and they know it but don’t want others to know…

    The ship editor looks a bit different because it is different for the X’or. Some of the weapons the X’or use are added to the ship with small satellites circling the ship. The small red circles indicate where these weapons will be added when the ship is built. Also, the editor will be overhauled a little bit for the final game.

    Yes, we have some +% technologies. But they don’t make up the majority of the tech tree. With most any research you get a new weapon, a new module, a new building etc. Even if you take away the +% technologies from the 2000 overall technologies, you still have a huge variety of tech to discover.

    Many greetings,
    Chris (Kalypso producer for LoP)

      Thanks Chris. Appreciate the clarifications. It is really hard to tell how things work based on screenshots and short trailer videos, so the explanation really helps.

      I know you have had to work overtime responding to questions on your forums (both in German and English even) as well as other sites, so I appreciate you stopping by. I also know that we 4x fans are a rather skeptical bunch. I’m sure given the debacle that was SOTS II that you understand why that is. I was one of the first to preorder, was very excited, and upon release I felt like I got sucker punched and had my wallet stolen. To this day I still have only 6 hours played on it.

      At the same time, know that we are all still talking about the game because we are interested in it and really don’t want to see it fail. In that sense, we are all on the same page. I want Legends of Pegasus to have a place on my hard drive for a long time to come.

    Ha! Finally someone gets it! ;-)

    9 Days ago i sent an inquiry to kalypsomedia. Except a cryptic autoresponder i haven’t got an answer yet. There has not been an announcement on Amazon.de to date.

  11. Chris says:

    Sorry to heard you did not get an answer. Where did you send your inquiry to? Amazon.de page for LoP will be up soon.

    • Evil Azrael says:

      Sent to info@kalypso… Got this autoresponder:

      “Dear Sir or Madam,

      You have mailed info@kalypsomedia.com – please note this address is reserved for general inquiries about Kalypso Media *only*.

      Please send all game support inquiries to support@kalypso….

      Your message was not forwarded.

      Best regards,

      Kalypso Media”

      So either Kalypso is rejecting all mails to this address or somehow detects game names. The first case is really bad, putting a non-working on the web site, second one is bad too, as not every request ist a support request.

      The question was simple: “Which copyprotectionor Online-DRM will be used for Legends of Pegasus”, so i can update my list http://www.spacesector.com/blog/forum/thread-875-post-3081.html#pid3081

  12. Chris says:

    Emails to the info@ adress are normally being read. The auto-responder is only for people how mistakenly write there for support questions. Don’t know why you didn’t get an answer though.

    Legends of Pegasus will use the Steam-at-retail system. Means: You will have to activate your game via Steam and will profit from all the Steam features such as achievements, community, etc.

    Many greetings,
    Chris

    • Evil Azrael says:

      Thanks for the answer, i updated the list.

      But sorry, these “profits” do not offset my perceived losses. But this is the usual anti-Steam discussion.

    There’s something suspicious about this game. I want to believe but after searching around on the website and various different sources, I haven’t found a ‘game’. Just a few shots of some graphics. Only one race is mentioned on their website. Everything is just so vague! Do you all agree?
