Get Set for Spooks: Legends of Equestria's Fall 2022 Update is Now Live!

Oct 09


Hey again, everypony! We're just dipping towards the spookiest time of year, so it's time to get into costume, with Legends of Equestria's newest release, v2022.04.01, now available for download!

As always, you can check out our full changelog for all the details of this update, but here's just a few highlights for you to know about!



Obviously, with it being October, the in-game season has shifted; Hallowtide has come to Equestria once more, and the seasonal decorations are up - along with a few new ones!



This also means that the usual seasonal costume quest events have also been enabled, along with some new styles available from your friendly neighbourhood graveyard keeper (for some reason)!



A major addition we hope you'll enjoy is a suite of new, main storyline quests that our writing team have been hard at work on; we consider this 'Act One' of the main storyline for LoE, so check out what all your school friends are up to, and learn more about the story we have planned for the future! And speaking of your childhood chums, a raft more character avatars have been added for the Mane Cast, to add a bit more personality to their dialogue!



The Mining talent has seen some love too; new tools are available, and a variety of rocks are now scattered across the landscape, meaning that all our dreams of becoming true rock farmers can finally be realised! You guys all had that same dream, right?



Some new attacks and animations have been designed, hopefully making combat more interactive; my personal favourite is this draconic meteor barrage that is sure to make them a more challenging fight!



The in-game world map has seen some more love, with clearer labels added to help you navigate around Equestria just a little easier than before!



And one less-visually-interesting-but-still-major change to note: enchanted armours are now crafted using the enchant skill available to unicorns, rather than the artisan Talent. We've also added a host of new artefacts that can be enchanted, though, so you can take your protection and style to the next level!



That's far from everything, of course; there's a whole smorgasbord of bug fixes included in this release, and we just rolled out a fairly major upgrade to our back-end server architecture (you may have noticed the game going offline this weekend while we worked on this) which should help us to improve stability going forward. As always, I would recommend checking out the full changelog if you want every detail of our changes for this version of the game!

If you're playing using our Windows launcher, your files should update automatically; other platforms may need to visit our downloads page to get hold of the latest game files. If you're playing on mobile, you may need to visit your app store to prompt the update! For Android users, please note that their verification of this version release is taking a little longer; you may have to wait a while before this release goes live for you!

That takes us to the end of this summary! We hope you enjoy everything we worked on for this version release, and we look forward to seeing you all in Equestria very soon!

Legends of Equestria's Summer 2022 Update is Now Live!

Jul 16


Hey again, everypony! We hope that the summer months are treating you well. Remember to stay hydrated, and take a look at what we have in store with you with v2022.03.01, now available for download!

This update's changelog is a particularly long one, but a lot of it covers bug fixes, minor improvements, and creature comforts. That doesn't mean I don't have a few things to highlight, though!



Firstly, it's time for the Festival of Lights again! All of Equestria is bursting into colourful radiance in celebration, and you might notice some improved lighting effects being shown off this time around! This of course means that the associated seasonal quests are active once more, so if you haven't grabbed that fabulous color-changing torch yet, now's your chance!



More NPCs are being given the recognition they deserve, with their roles now prominently displayed by a title beneath their name; team members have also gotten a similar treatment, with their role on the project highlighted above their name. Now it's even easier to avoid spot a moderator to give a warm greeting to!



Some of your classmates have now gotten the full character portrait treatment in their foal stage as well as the adult stage; who knew filly Midnight could be so adorable? If only we didn't all know the violin-related horror her future held for us all...



Did somepony order neckerchiefs? I hope so, because Sturdy Step has just gotten a bulk order in, so hopefully you'll all help shift that stock! Legwarmers are also another new cosmetic, available from Free Trade.



We've also added a batch of new Talent Marks, and some items are now supported as 'mouth-hold' items, meaning... well, you can hold them in your mouth, like the name suggests. That's what whistles are for, after all!



The chat system has also seen some reworking. Some highlights include that your current chat tab will finally remain constant across room changes and play sessions, and the party chat now properly only appears when actually in a party. One thing to note, though, is that with these changes, changing which chat you're viewing no longer automatically changes which channel you're typing to - so take a minute to get used to this change!



Another bug fix that deserves highlighting has to do with item coloring; equippable items set to pure white (255,255,255) used to default back to the item's original coloring. This has been fixed, but it has a side-effect; any items you own that have currently been left on their 'default' coloration will appear white after this update. You can fix this by recoloring the item, though!

There's really an awful lot more that's been improved - a new user-submitted menu theme, more ambient sounds added, some menu settings reworks, and enough bug fixes to fill a boat - so I'd really recommend checking out the full changelog for all the additions and changes this time around.

If you're playing using our Windows launcher, your files should update automatically; other platforms may need to visit our downloads page to get hold of the latest game files. If you're playing on mobile, you may need to visit your app store to prompt the update!

That's everything we have for you for now; we hope you enjoy the Festival of Lights, and we'll see you again soon!

Legends of Equestria v2022.02.01 Is Now Available!

May 13


Hey again, everypony! We hope you've all enjoyed warming up after winter, and are ready to spring into summer! We've been busy ourselves, and are happy to announce that our next major update, v2022.02.01, is now available for download!



First things first, our amazing community continues to submit some great menu designs, and two more are being featured, with an all-new soundtrack to one! Remember, if you'd like to see your own artwork featured as a main menu theme, you can read all the details on how to submit it here.



Another thing you'll likely notice quickly is that some NPCs now have subtitles! This should help to give you a little more information about what an NPC does - whether they're a merchant, a member of the Guard, or one of you friends from foalhood - and make navigation a little easier!



We're also experimenting with more advanced mob behaviour. Now, attacking certain enemies may trigger a 'swarm' effect, where other nearby mobs will also rush in to defend them! Make sure you take extra caution when engaging in combat, because who knows how many enemies you might make!



We've added a couple of new and rather dashing cosmetic items, too. Just in time for a certain in-game, player-organised, formal event, we hope! If you'd like to attend the community-made Gala event, make sure you put on your best outfit, and check out the details on the #community-events channel of our Discord serverhttps://discordapp.com/invite/uPvn8Xr!



That's the highlights, but there's plenty more packed into this update; a new construction site in the Frontier, quest fixes, skill upgrade adjustments, lighting changes, a new animation for the Mining Talent, variable bank space rewards from quests, and more! If you'd like to read all the details, as always, you can find them in our changelog post.



If you're playing on Windows using our Launcher, the game should update automatically; other platforms will need to visit our downloads page to grab the latest copy of the game files. If you're on a mobile device, you may need to visit your app store to prompt the update to start!



That's all from us for now! Hopefully you enjoy what we've worked on so far, and are looking forward to what we have planned next! Until then, we'll see you in Equestria!

A New Spring Event And The iOS Release of Legends of Equestria Are Live!

Apr 11


Hey again, everypony! Nice to speak to you again so soon!

We've got a couple of exciting bits of news for you all. First off, the big one: Legends of Equestria is finally available on iPhone and iPad!



We've been hard at work since starting development on our mobile version of the game to get it onto the App Store; it's taken us a little bit of time to dot the I's and cross the T's, but we're finally there now! You can download Legends of Equestria from the App Store now, on an iPhone running iOS 13.0 or later, or an iPad running iPadOS 13.0 or later. Please note, however, that while it can be downloaded there, the app may not run well on devices older (or with lower hardware specifications) than the iPhone X and iPad 7. Macs with Apple Silicon can also use this as an alternative client for LoE! Major thanks go to our publishing partner Candy Horses for handling the legal processes to publish the game on the App Store.



That's not all, though; a new in-game event has begun! With winter all warmed up across Equestria, the land is truly springing into spring - but it's not all good news. The strong winds have blown many eggs out of their nests, scattering them across the Heartlands! Luckily, one pony has decided to rectify this tragedy, and he's offering rewards for all those willing to help him! You can find this new character just outside Midway Village, where he's waiting to trade you a new unique outfit (as well as some other goodies) in return for any eggs you can collect. You'll have to be quick if you want to earn this new costume, though; this in-game event only runs until the 24th April!



That's everything we have for now! We hope you enjoy the game on this new platform, and the new in-game event too; we have lots more planned for the rest of the year, so stick around, and we'll see you in Equestria!

Springing Into Spring: Legends of Equestria's First Update of 2022 Is Now Live!

Mar 13
Hey there, everypony! The snow is beginning to melt across Equestria... which must mean it's time for Legends of Equestria's spring update! We've been hard at work to bring you a bunch of new content, features, and improvements, so we're very excited to let you know what to expect in v2022.01.01, now available for download!



First things first: with a change of season comes a change of events. The festivities are over, and Check List is once again looking for help to complete Ponydale's Winter Warm-Up! She'll be waiting at the Town Hall as usual for any volunteers who'd like to lend a hoof. You have until April 10th to complete the event!



That's not the only seasonal event happening this year, though; with strong winds on the horizon, nesting birds' eggs are at risk, and one pony needs your help to save them! This new collection event will begin April 11th and runs through until April 24th (which by complete coincidence roughly coincides with a real-world seasonal event, what are the chances?), so you can look forward to earning the new bunny-suit reward in the near future!



A full-scale map has now been added! It can be accessed with the M key (or tapping the minimap on mobile), and shows your character's position within the world of Equestria. It also features an interactive legend for some key locations, like farming and mining spots, or cooking stations!



We've also been working on some improvements to how ponies move and interact with the world. A lot of this has gone into our new headlook system; other players on the server will now be able to see where you're looking much clearer, and you can manually control the head position with a keybind (the R key by default). You'll never miss something out of the corner of your eye again!


I swear the bit where she looks at the camera was not intended as a jumpscare.


A bunch of new loading screen art is also included for lots of our in-game locations that were previously stuck sharing! You'll also see a loading percentage, to give you a better idea of how long it'll take before you can get to exploring again.




One final highlight of the update: everypony's favorite cousins, the donkeys, have finally rolled into town! Donkey NPCs are being added to the game, with more to come in the near future!



There's plenty more included in this update - like a raft of new quests and NPCs, a bunch of bug fixes, some terrain loading improvements, a hoodie cosmetic item, and much more! You can check out everything in our changelog post, as usual. If you're playing using our Windows launcher, your files should update automatically; other platforms may need to visit our downloads page to get hold of the latest game files. If you're playing on mobile, you may need to visit your app store to prompt the update.



That's everything for now; we hope you enjoy this newest update, and we look forward to seeing you in Equestria soon!
