Kalypso Media, the developer behind spaceship simulator Legends of Pegasus, has announced the games PC release today. The game allows you to choose from one of three races, and build an intergalactic empire by creating a powerful fleet of starships. Kalypso Media describes the game as 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit and eXterminate) – sounds interesting, especially the eXploit part.
The game reportedly features an expansive technology tree for your empire to utilize and many options to customize starships. The game will also feature LAN and Internet based multiplayer for those who want to conquer human life.
The gameplay combines real-time and turn based strategy, battles being played out in real time, and exploration/colonization/expansion taking place in a turn based format. If this sounds like your kind of game, you can head over to www.legendsofpegasus.com for more information.
