LoE Open Access Release Gameplay Trailer

Aug 30
With our Open Access Release starting September 10, we've created another trailer to highlight an important aspect of the game!

There'll be plenty to do and see in Equestria, but you won't be able to do it all alone! For some adventures, you'll need to work together with friends - the ones you already have, or the new ones you'll be able to make!





Please note, this trailer was produced using LoE's lower graphics settings. We want to ensure LoE is accessible to as many people as possible, even if they don't have access to high-end computer hardware. If you have the horsepower (pun intended) to run higher graphical quality settings, LoE might look pretty different; some better video settings were used for our previous trailer, here!

LoE Interview Round-up: TwoCredits Column and EquestriaAmino Livestream!

Aug 25
Hey again, everypony!

We're all hard at work getting everything ready for September 10, but while we're working we've managed to find the time to do a couple of interviews about Legends of Equestria!

The first one is actually a teenie bit old, but what with crunching on the game, and some... other events... it kinda just slipped through the cracks, so we're getting to it now!

Click below to watch a livestreamed interview with InvisiBrony of Equestria Amino; we cover a lot of detail in the hour or so of interview, so it's a good place to find out more from the people behind the project!

More recently, we did an interview with TwoCredits, a gaming news and review website; we discussed the development of the project, our vision for the game in the future, and the upcoming Open Access Release! You can read that here: http://twocredits.co/columns/interview-developers-legends-equestria/

That's everything for now! We've got a lot more work to do, and plenty planned to show you over the coming weeks, so you should definitely keep an eye out for more! We can't wait to explore Equestria with all of you in September!

The LoE Forum is Back!

Aug 23
Hey, everypony! It's been a little while, huh?

If you can cast your mind back all the way to July 5, you'll remember that we suffered a cyberattack that hit one of our databases. That attacker gained access to records like usernames, email addresses, and password hashes for all accounts registered with LoE - both team members, and the general public. Because of that attack, we had to immediately shut down the forum - and production on the game - until we were able to guarantee the safety of everyone.

We still believe that the attacker was focused on targeting our team members specifically, but that doesn't change that they would have had access to everyone else's details too. That's why we continue to advise you to change your password on any website or service that had the same password as your LoE account.

We've now finished this stage of updating our security systems; that's why the forum is back! We're still looking into what more we can do, but we're confident in the steps we've taken so far. Part of those steps we've taken will require you to set a new password for your LoE account if you have one, though. On the login page, you'll need to click "forgot your password?" and follow those steps to send an email to your registered email address which will allow you to set a new, stronger password.

Another step we've taken is to remove the chatbox from the forum. It was old and outdated, and served as a possible attack point against us. We don't want to leave you with nothing, though, so we've set up a Discord server as an improved replacement! It has the same features and more, is safer for everyone, and is a better way to communicate. You can join by clicking here (note that you'll need a Discord account!).

Taptalk is also disabled for the time being, but we have taken the opportunity to update our forum systems - including making it more mobile-friendly. Hopefully the forum will not only be safer, but also better to use!

Everything else - all the threads, posts, and account details - should be exactly where you left them; but if you notice anything missing, or any other issues, please let us know as soon as possible!

Because of the delay and damage caused by the attack, we've obviously missed our intended August 19 target for the LoE Open Access Release. Our new OAR date is September 10, and we're working extra hard to make sure we're able to include everything we wanted into that release.

Remember, in order to be able to play LoE on that date, you'll need to have a working forum account; that means that you will need to update your password if you have one already, or create one if you don't.

Once again, we apologise for the security breach, but we're confident that the steps we have taken will help to safeguard us from similar attempts in the future - and we still look forward to exploring the world of Equestria with all of you on September 10!

Expect more details about our Open Access Release to come over the next few weeks!

Legends of Equestria Open Access Release: All The Details!

Jul 04

Hey again, everypony!
 
It's been a pretty big few days for us; we just announced our Open Access Release, starting September 10, 2017; that doesn't mean we can rest, though! We've still got a lot of work to do before we reach that day - and beyond.
 
We thought you all deserved a little more information about the Open Access Release (or OAR for short; aren't acronyms great?), so this post will hopefully give you all the details we can share right now!
 
First off, what do we mean by 'Open Access Release'? Well, put simply, we see this as the next logical step after our Limited Access Release (LAR), which kicked off in December 2016; since then, we've had our game servers permanently online, and available for a select group of players that we hand-picked to help us iron out all the bugs they could find, and provide feedback on the game. What we're basically going to do is open up access to the servers for everyone - so, as long as you have a computer that can run LoE, and an internet connection, you'll be able to make an account and play!
 
Speaking of being able to run LoE, our system requirements are fairly low; we're looking at 2GB of RAM, a 2GHz Dual-Core processor, a graphics card with 256mb VRAM and support for DirectX9.0c/OpenGL2.0, and around 3.5GB of storage space. Basically, if your computer was bought around 2010 or later, it shouldn't have a problem running the game. We're developing LoE for Windows (Vista or later), MacOS (10.9 'Mavericks' or later), and Linux computers, and will be releasing the game via the 'downloads' page of our website; other operating systems or platforms aren't currently being considered, but it's possible that in the future, it might be an option we look into.
 
These requirements are subject to change, though; it's important to remember that this isn't the 'final release' version of LoE. We still have an awful lot of stuff planned for the game; a boatload of new quests, zones, abilities, Talent Marks, characters, and more, is all planned. That's not to say that the September OAR version of the game will be empty; there'll still be plenty for everypony to do and enjoy - but we have so much more planned. We're calling this an 'Open Access' release for a very good reason; LoE isn't finished, but we're in a position where we've got enough ready that we're ready to make it available. Think along the lines of some of those 'early access' projects you might've seen in recent years, where the developer makes the game available while still actively working on it!
 
To give you a rough idea: we have three 'story arcs' planned for the main storyline of LoE. We're aiming to have the first arc implemented by September; that means we have all the material in mind for another two-thirds worth of game.
 
So, what will you be able to expect in September? Well, you'll be able to start off your life in Equestria as a filly or colt from one of the three pony races (Earth, Pegasus, or Unicorn), and learn how to experience the world we've built, alongside a rich and varied cast of main and supporting characters.
 

Through exploration and questing, you'll be able to acquire your Talent Mark, from six distinct branches of expertise: Animal Care, Healing, Partying, Magic, Combat, and Flying. You will be able to guide your character to adulthood (or stay as a foal, if you prefer!).
 

You'll then get to explore seven distinct 'zones' full of adventure and experiences. You'll be able to do all of this alone, or with friends - ones you started playing with, or ones that you make along the way - and form a Party or join a Herd with them to face numerous challenges together, such as Dungeons.
 

And everything you do, you will do it in a living online world, full of not only characters we've designed, with unique conversations, backstories, and tasks for you to complete - but also full of other players just like you, experiencing Equestria together. Our moderation team will be working hard to make sure it's a safe and enjoyable world for everyone, and we really hope you enjoy playing in it!
 
We can't thank you all enough for all the patience and support you've shown us over the 5 years we've been developing Legends of Equestria, and we can't wait to take this next step forward with you all. We plan to keep releasing more information on everything that'll be available in the OAR in September, so please keep an eye out over the next few weeks!

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!
