Legends of Equestria Open Access Release: Trailer and Date Announcement!

Jun 24


Hey there, everypony! We've got some big news to share with you today!

We've been working on Legends of Equestria for over five years now, trying to build the best world we can for you all to explore, socialise and adventure in, and most importantly, enjoy. It's been a long road, and an awful lot of work - but we're ready to take our next step.

In December 2016, we launched our Limited Access Release, granting full and permanent game access to a small number of players hand-picked to help us test the game, give us feedback, and weed out those pesky bugs. Their help has been massive to us, and they deserve thanks for every single report they made. But the next step forward for us is to take that Limited Access Release... and turn it into an Open Access Release!

What does that mean? Well, put simply, it means that the game will be fully available for everyone to play, permanently. The game launcher will be made available to download, the servers will be online, and the doors will be wide open to let every pony in!

An important thing to note, though, is that this will not be the end of development for Legends of Equestria. We still have a huge amount of stuff we want to include in the game, from zones to storylines, and we intend to keep working on the project for a long time to come! Think of this release in the same vein as other 'open access' projects, where a substantial amount of the game is available to play, but the team behind it is still working on loads of stuff to add!

We'll be able to discuss in a little while exactly what you can expect from our Open Access Release, but for now, here's a quick trailer for you, featuring the date that our Open Access Release will begin!

So, a quick recap: Legends of Equestria will be available to play, permanently and free for everyone, starting with our Open Access Release on August 19, 2017.



We're really proud of everyone who has contributed to this project, and that we've managed to reach this incredible milestone; as an entirely volunteer team, donating our time and energy for free, creating an MMO like this is a gargantuan task. We've still got a lot we want to do, though, so we thank you for your patience so far, and we hope to see you in Equestria soon!

Legends of Equestria is Looking for VFX Artists!

May 01

It takes a lot of people with a whole bunch of diverse skills to build something as huge as the world of Equestria, and we're always on the lookout for talent in various teams - but one area we're particularly interested in at the moment is visual effects, for our VFX team!

What do we mean by that? Well, visual effects are the little things that really make the world of Equestria feel real. When a player or enemy uses an ability and you see it happen; when there's a little effect to accompany an event in the game; that's what the VFX team creates.

We're interested in hearing from anyone who has experience creating visual effects in Unity; for example, particle effects. If you also have experience working in a cartoonish style similar to the art style of LoE, then that's a major plus, but it isn't essential.

VFX Artists would be in charge of creating and implementing spritesheet elements to be used in all areas of the game; the little visual flairs that will really make the world of Equestria come to life.

If you're interested in game development, want to contribute to the project, or are simply looking for a hobby that will put your talents to use, then we want to hear from you! As a member of the VFX team, not only would you be helping to bring Legends of Equestria to life, but you'd also get training and support from long-time team members with years of experience. Oh, and you'd become part of a pretty cool group of friends from around the world!

If that sounds like the kind of thing you're interested in making, and you want to help us make the best horse game ever*, then please email [email protected] with links to examples of your work.

We look forward to hearing from you!




Please remember, we do require that applicants be at least 16 years of age before joining the team. Legends of Equestria is a volunteer project, being developed by a large team of dedicated fans from around the world, giving their time, and energy, to bring an entire world together. Every member of every team is working purely out of passion for the project; this is not a paid position, and we cannot offer any financial incentive for your contributions. All we can guarantee is the warm fuzzy feeling from helping to create the world of Equestria, for all fans of ponies to enjoy.

And lots of socks.

Legends of Equestria at NYC Ponycon!

Jan 16


Hey, everypony!

We hope you all had a great holiday, and are looking forward to 2017! We sure are; it'll mark 5 years since Legends of Equestria officially began development, and it's a great opportunity for us to look back at just how far we've come since then - and how much more we have to look forward to!

To kick off this year, we're super excited to announce our first convention appearance of 2017 at NYC Ponycon, January 27-29! Our team members Natfoth and SavanaPope will be present with a demonstration table for Legends of Equestria. Anyone who's interested in the LoE, in what we're currently doing with it and where we're going with it, or just in game development in general, this is a great opportunity for you! Whether you want to come and see how far we've come with the game, or just to have a chat with a couple of key team members, we'll be happy to see you!

We'll have plenty more to discuss and announce in the coming months, so stay tuned for more!

Limited Access Release Applicants Have Been Contacted! Please Check Your Emails!

Dec 10



Hey again, everypony!

When we opened up applications for the Limited Access Release, we were stunned by the response. It was super difficult to go through all the submissions and narrow them down to the small pool of ponies we needed for this stage of testing - and we almost didn't make it... But here we are, on the other side of the gruelling task.

That can only mean one thing: our Limited Access Release players have been chosen!

Messages have been sent out to the accounts we've chosen to participate. Please check your emails to see if you've received one - and don't forget that pesky spam box! Alternatively, you could check the homepage of our forum; if you can see the LAR-exclusive board, then that means you're in! (It'd be better to check your emails though, I spent like twenty minutes writing out that message for you!)

Remember, as we've talked about before, this stage of the LAR is mainly a testing phase; this is mainly about getting a small number of players in to test the game on their systems, test how the game will run being always-online, and squash all the bugs we can find. Nopony should feel bad for not getting in, and there'll be plenty more opportunities to join in as the next few months roll out - not to mention that the full release of Legends of Equestria isn't all that far away!

So, congratulations to those who have been accepted; all the details you'll need are in the LAR forum section. Make sure you read them carefully, and be ready for things to kick off on the 12th!

And to everyone else, whether you missed out here or are waiting for the full release of LoE to enjoy the completed experience, we encourage you to keep an eye out! More information will be coming soon!

Thanks everypony, and I'll speak to you again soon!
