Legends of Equestria Hallowe'en Update is Live!

Oct 22


Hey again, everypony!

We've had a lot of fun sharing Equestria with you over the last couple of months, and seeing you share your experiences with us has been amazing too! We've still been working hard to bring you even more to enjoy, though, and today we've released our Hallowe'en update!

You can find a full changelog here, but there's a couple of key parts that you'll probably notice more than the others:

Firstly, we've increased the maximum number of ponies per account to 6. The original limitation was necessary when we first started out, but improvements mean more ponies for players to pick from!

Secondly, we were hearing a lot of feedback regarding the game's performance when certain parts of the UI were under a lot of strain; for example, having a lot of ponies on your friend's list causing significant drops in framerate. We want to encourage everypony to have more friends, not less, so we've worked to deal with that!

And finally (and probably most importantly), this is our Hallowe'en update, so it's only right that we'd bring some spooky costumes to the party! Word has it that the Equestria-famous costume designer Ensemble has opened up shop in the Crystal Kingdom, and has a few designs on sale - but he might have an extra special bat-related costume available for those willing to help him make it!



Be aware, though, that this quest is seasonal; it won't be around forever, so make sure you get this costume while you can! Ensemble will no longer be offering the quest after Monday, 13th November - at least until next year!

Remember, if you want to experience everything a new update has to offer, you need to make sure that you're keeping your version of LoE up-to-date! If you're using a direct download version of the game, you'll need to re-download the newest version of the game from our downloads page. If you're running on the Windows launcher version, your game should update automatically the next time you launch it!

We hope you enjoy what we've added and fixed with this update, but as always, we're still hard at work to bring you more! Remember, if you have any bugs, glitches, or suggestions to report, you should do so using the system explained here; that'll ensure the right people see your report, and get to work on it!

Speaking of work, we've got a lot more to do; we'll see you in Equestria!

Legends of Equestria Panel at Nightmare Nights Dallas!

Oct 19


Hey again, everypony!

We're super hard at work to bring you Legends of Equestria's next update, along with all of the bug fixes we can cram in there! We've got some other news to announce before that's ready, though!

Members of the LoE team will be attending Nightmare Nights Dallas, Friday 27th - Sunday 29th October! You might see us strolling around the convention floor (just look for our snazzy bat-Ellowee badges), and we're also hosting a Legends of Equestria panel on Sunday 29th, at 3.30pm in the Addison LH room! We'll be discussing the work that went into achieving our Open Access Release, covering some more details of our development process, and answering some of your questions! For more info on Nightmare Nights Dallas, check out their website!

If you're attending the convention, we'd love to see you there; if not, there may be special activities going on in-game during the panel, so why not play along at home? Everything you need to enjoy LoE's Open Access Release is on our downloads page!

Media Roundup (5th October 2017): Your Best Videos, Screenshots, and Fanart!

Oct 05
Hey again, everypony!

Hope you're all still enjoying our Open Access Release! We're still busy at work bringing you more of Equestria to explore and enjoy, but you've all been busy yourselves too! Here are a few of our favourite things that you've sent our way about LoE over the past couple of weeks!




Let's start off with a few videos! First off, a first impressions video from Toy Caboodle:



YourAverageJoe provided a tutorial on how to earn your Talent Mark and become an adult pony:



Moon Sango has been livestreaming her adventures in Equestria, and you can catch the first video of it here:



Another playthrough by Sonicsora Gaming caught our eye, and we particularly enjoyed their third episode:



And finally, Lightning Spark captured one of the Ponydale Guards exhibiting a remarkable super-power (definitely not a bug), and edited it appropriately:






Now for some of our favourite in-game screenshots that you've shared with us! This is one of the things we love to see the most from you guys, so we can see what parts of Equestria you're enjoying the most!

























Let's finish it out with some fanart! First off, we have NMooly's very atmospheric image, blending a screenshot well with their own work:



SparkleChord drew one of their favourite NPC's, the Ancient Aviator, and recommends you visit him in Cloudopolis and listen to his tale:



And last, but certainly not least, Beck the Wreck did a rather jolly portrait of yours truly!



There's no favouritism at work with these selections, honest...  ;)




That's all for now! Remember, if you've got anything you want the team to see, you can share it with us through our social media accounts, or our Discord server!

We've still got a lot more work to do before LoE is anywhere near done, and we hope you'll all stick around to see what we've got in the works! Remember, you can help us improve the game: many of our teams are looking for more people to help us, and you can report any bugs you find in-game using the system explained here!

See you in Equestria!

Legends of Equestria Updated OAR Build is Now Live!

Sep 22
Hey again, everypony!

We hope youv'e all been having fun in Equestria together! You might have seen some of us running around, adventuring alongside the rest of you - but that doesn't mean we haven't been hard at work to keep improving Equestria! And to prove that, we've just released our latest build of LoE!

If you're using the Windows launcher, your game should be automatically updated when you next launch it. If you're using one of our direct downloads, however, you'll need to delete that version, and then grab this version from our downloads page! While the original OAR build will still work, we strongly recommend making sure you're always playing the latest version of the game, so you can benefit from our bug fixes and content updates!

There's a lot of smaller changes included in this update, alongside a couple of bigger ones; one of the most noticeable improvements is to how your hotbar and journal work together. You can now properly remove and re-organise the abilities on your hotbar, and add attacks and emotes straight from their respective journal pages, as well as items from your inventory, without issue (hopefully)!

The full changelog from the OAR release build to this latest one is available here!










Of course, this doesn't mean we're finished; we've still got an awful lot more stuff planned, and plenty more to fix! Remember, if you have any bugs, glitches, or suggestions to report, you should do so using the system explained here; that'll ensure the right people see your report, and get to work on it!

Now it's back to work for us; see you in Equestria!

Media Roundup: News, Videos, Screenshots, and More!

Sep 18
Hey there, everypony!

We hope you've all had fun exploring Equestria together over the last week! The response to the start of our Open Access Release has been amazing, and everypony on the team is super humbled by your enthusiasm for the work we've done.

We're nowhere near done yet, though! We've been hard at work fixing as many of the bugs you've reported as we can, and we've already pushed out an uncountable number of hotfixes to the server. We're also currently putting together a new build of the game, which should be available in the next couple of days, to bring you even more fixes, and maybe a few other bits and pieces too; we'll make sure it includes a changelog, so you know just what we're adding for you to enjoy!

And of course, we're still grinding away at our larger content plans, readying all-new material for everypony to enjoy! More quests, more areas, more dungeons, more features - all of them are being developed as we speak, and we'll be bringing them to you as soon as we can!

In the meantime though, we wanted to highlight a few things we've seen from you, and the gaming community as a whole, that have really made the team smile!




First off, a few impressions and gameplay videos have been popping up that have helped to provide us with a good idea of what people are thinking of the game so far. One of our favourites was from TheHiveLeader, who highlighted the game alongside his (completely adorable-sounding) young daughter!



Our German-speaking team members also enjoyed this gameplay video from teddygun:



Twisted Heart has started a Let's Play of LoE's OAR, and you can catch the first video here:



Nyxie made a new intro for LoE that sounds a little familiar...



A beautiful remix of our 'Serenity' track was made by FruityFusion:



And LittleshyFiM seemed to be having a lot of fun with a lot of friends during their livestream a couple of days ago!






LoE's also gotten a bit of coverage from news websites. Our friends at Equestria Daily were kind enough to cover our servers going live and the release of our animated story trailer!

We were also featured on the MMO news websites MMORPG.com and Massively Overpowered, thanks to TheHiveLeader's video!

And French gaming website Gamewave also covered the launch of our OAR!




One of the things we were most eager to see was screenshots of the game from the people enjoying it - and you didn't disappoint! We'd like to share a few of our favourites with you here!



















Spot anypony you recognise? ;)




We were also blown away with some fanart we've received; for example, we were super impressed with this fanart of Pyrite from LunaEclipsa!



And this drawing from @MLP_SherbetPosy is just too adorable for words to describe!






That's all for now! We've still got a lot more work to do before LoE is anywhere near done, and we hope you'll all stick around to see what we've got in the works! Remember, you can help us improve the game: many of our teams are looking for more people to help us, and you can report any bugs you find in-game using the system explained here!

See you in Equestria!
