In the 23rd century, mankind made tremendous progress colonizing the vast extents of space. Man built huge spaceships, colonized new planets and even used terraforming to transform uninhabitable worlds. Soon, new races were also discovered. The first contact was friendly and peaceful. But peace can be deceptive…

Legends of Pegasus  takes you to an epic journey into space and mixes real-time and turn-based strategy. Players will expand their civilization in the galaxy by colonizing new planets, building factories, laboratories and shipyards, researching new technologies and designing new spacecrafts to keep on exploring new galaxies. Battles are played real-time and decided not only by your tactical skills, but also by your strategic decisions and the design and equipment of your ships.

Legends of Pegasus  offers a massive single player campaign, during which the player will discover three very different races. Multiplayer features Internet or LAN gameplay, against Human or AI opponents. If you like designing your own game yourself, numerous modding options will certainly make you all the more happy. The spectacular 3D graphics don’t just bring life to marvelous planets, but also to the stunning spaceships you can freely design thanks to an intuitive building system.
