Kalypso announces Legends of Pegasus

Kalypso Media has announced Legends of Pegasus, a new PC-only 4X strategy game.

Kalypso Media has announced a new PC-exclusive 4X strategy game in the run up to GamesCom 2011 in Cologne, called Legends of Pegasus.

Putting players in control of the last surviving humans in a distant future, Legends of Pegasus is about trying to rebuild the human empire in hostile galactic territory.

Legends of Pegasus is being developed by Novacore Studios and is penciled in for a Q2 2012 release at the moment.

The game will base itself around the traditional 4X design - explore, expand, exploit and exterminate - complete with a fully 3D universe populated by three races and 12 playable factions. An extensive singleplayer campaign will be complemented by a multiplayer side too, both of which boast plenty of customisation options, says Kalypso.

Legends of the Pegasus will also have full modding support, with players able to create or edit their own missions and maps.

We'll be catching up with Kalypso Media at GamesCom 2011 in Cologne next week, so we expect to bring you more information on the game then. In the mean time, let us know your thoughts in the forums.

Check our GamesCom 2011 news hub for all the information from Cologne this year.

But is RT4x or TB4x??? (Real time or Turn based)

I'm hoping RTS. TBS doesn't look like the right setup for this kind of scenario.

Could go down the GalCiv2 route. Which is a damn good game. But then on the other side you have SINS, which is also a "damn good game".

All depends on the execution.

Is 4x like XXX, but more hardcore?

Cant say i have ever played it. However i have only ever heard good things. (I have been told by many that this fact is indeed a tragedy and that i should feel like there is gaping hole in my life)

I'd like a 4X where discovering a habitable planet was a big deal rather than just something that happens. I also can't quite square the 'legends of Pegasus' with a seriously futuristic sci fi!

You would do well to nab all three (Homeworld, Homeworld: Cataclysm and Homeworld 2) and find how well a space RTS can be done, that's true. I only wish Steam would get hold of them :)

Homeworld 2 ruined it for me, Homeworld 1 and Cata were much better, they dumbed down 2 a lot I felt, took away a lot of the fleet formations, things like fuel for fighters/corvettes, made it too easy just to load up with BC's and jump in, before had to think about logistics, how to get fuel to you ships etc

This just might cut into my sins of a solar empire addiction if it turns out for the better.

You've never seen the new battlestar galactica have you? The Pegasus was a truly mighty ship in a gritty sci-fi world. Although if you have seen the show, there is an issue with putting the term - futuristic - in that same sentence. :)

that does sound a lot like sins, still should be interesting.

Shame about the name, sounds a bit like a barbie game.

Homeworld 1 cata and 2 all don't run on win 7 so they are kinda lost for most people
