What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to use the Early Access in order to engage the community and receive feedback that will help us make the game the best that it can be. We plan to release several updates with significant volume of new content and features which we are enthusiastic about, but being a small developer team, we want to hear from our players to make the best possible improvements and additions.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to release the final version of the game in mid-2023. This should give us the time we need to add all the planned content, polish the game and make changes to our design based on player feedback. In case we need more time, we will inform everyone in advance.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access release will start with the main story campaign implemented and no other content. We plan to release 4 Content Updates in total, each bringing a new scenario (a new, smaller-scale campaign with different settings and twists on the core gameplay) and new features, polish, and bugfixes, plus the final full release will bring a scenario completely different from the others, featuring a different playable race as well.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The initial Early Access release contains the main story campaign only, more content in the form of additional scenarios will be added during the Early Access period. Gameplay features and mechanics available to the players are described in detail in the "About This Game" section below.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The price during the Early Access period will be somewhat lower, to give the early players a chance to contribute to the development and reward them for believing in our project. We are planning to increase the price once as we get close to the full release, to reflect the final amount of content and improved quality of the game. We will let everyone know via the Steam announcements and forums and our social media channels before any price change occurs, so that they can plan ahead.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are going to interact with players in Steam discussions and we wholeheartedly invite anyone interested in our game to join our Discord server as well. We encourage all players to let us know what they think of The Pegasus Expedition, what are the parts they like and dislike. We would like to know as much about their experience with the game and their suggestions for improving it and making it bigger and better - how they feel about the story, gameplay elements, artworks, music, and anything they themselves consider important.”

About This Game

The Pegasus Expedition is a story-driven sci-fi grand strategy game set in a key moment for humankind’s survival. Facing an overwhelming threat at home, humanity sends an expedition to the Pegasus Galaxy in a desperate attempt to find a refuge for the population of Earth, only to find themselves in the middle of an interstellar war they inadvertently started.

As you lead one of these fleets, your mission soon transitions from exploration to governance, conquest, and eventually a fight for survival. Players will experience a challenging story where nothing is self-evident and every decision will have its consequences.

Building on the legacy of the grand strategy genre, The Pegasus Expedition adds a strong narrative side to the classic 4X-gameplay which involves managing your diplomatic ties, armies, economy and scientific development.

Key Features

  • Immense handcrafted world – a replayable campaign set in a rich, vast world.
  • Conflict and tragedy – experience a deep storyline, where no-one is perfect and ends will often have to justify the means.
  • Choose to be the leader you wish to be – face difficult moral choices in difficult times, and suffer their consequences.
  • Rewarding gameplay experience – Versatile 4X gameplay with many different approaches to various challenges the campaign presents.
  • Meaningful diplomacy – a diverse and versatile system with over 30 independent factions in the galaxy.
  • Planning-based combat – manage your warfronts' bigger picture, and weigh which losses you’re willing to take for success.

A story driven 4X-game

The Pegasus Expedition is a story driven grand strategy game which focuses on combining an epic sci-fi narrative with a solid 4X foundation to create a very unique narrative strategy game experience. Your decisions and actions shape the galaxy around you, with every alliance and crisis you suffer or cause leaving their mark.

The Council

As the Director of Zeus Link fleet, you control all aspects of the Zeus Link, making all of your critical decisions with your council; the group of your closest subordinates and advisors. They will inform you of the new developments in the galaxy, and do their part in solving the numerous crises and incidents you will have to resolve, one way or another.


You will start out with only your seasoned but thin expeditionary fleet, and you will need to develop a functioning economy fast to keep the Expedition going. After all, you will be supplied from home for only so long.

Diplomacy in a Torn Galaxy

The Pegasus Galaxy is full of independent factions, with their own grudges, rivalries and fragile alliances, so you’ll need to navigate this diplomatic landscape with care in order to succeed. That will involve both making dynamic deals and treaties in the diplomacy system, as well as making tough choices in dialogue. After all, you are a suspicious and despised newcomer in this galaxy, with limited time and huge expectations to accomplish.

Manage your Fleets and Officers

To survive in this new and often hostile galaxy, it’s extremely important to keep your forces improving and your leaders trained. You will have to work with limited human resources, and choosing the right person for the right job can often make the difference. Assign admirals, governors and special forces operatives to help you to victory.

Stellar Warfare

War never really changes, and the Pegasus galaxy has a lot of it to offer. Choose your strategies and plan your battles well, as in the Pegasus Expedition’s unique combat, careful planning is everything. Espionage and the well thought out movement of your forces will be crucial in war, in order to have your fleets at the right place at the right time.


In the future, there’s an even shinier future ahead. There are great discoveries to be made, and many things, great and less great, that you can do using those discoveries. To have a chance against your foes, you'll need to be one step ahead of them in technology too, and not just in strategy.

Fight Against the Ever Worsening Odds

Your starting situation is not an easy one... And it’s only going to get worse. The longer the expedition continues, the higher the stakes, with new threats, enemies, backstabbers and heroic resistance movements. Everything to keep the campaign dynamic, interesting, and challenging to the very end. With a plenty of characters, sidequests and twists and turns to the campaign, the dynamic Pegasus Galaxy will present new challenges to face that will keep you on your toes.
