Beyond the Void is one of the oldest Blockchain Games available. It’s free to play space-themed Real-Time Strategy with MOBA elements featuring one-to-one battles.
The game is available on Steam as early access with mostly positive feedback based on user reviews.
Purpose of Beyond the Void is simple, like every MOBA game, where you have to take out the enemy base before he destroys yours.
You start with a selected Spaceship, and alongside your minions, you must destroy space nodes until you reach the main base. Your ship has active and passive skills available to use while in battle. After each battle, you collect battle points which to unlock new abilities.
Minions are super important. You just can’t beat the opponent on your own. Whether you attack or defend, make sure the minions are by your side.
To win your opponent, you can take over planets in the map, build rings, and further develop your technology.
There are different maps to play, but the basics are the same. Once you begin, you have to take over other planets and form rings. You can select between three different types of strategies that will directly affect your gameplay.
- Combat: Full attack, call for backup, and take out the opponent.
- Economic: Gather more Ambrosium and increase your resources.
- Defense: Protect your planet with shields.
Also, all skills that player masters need Ambrosium. Moreover, you can collect buffs and other power-ups.

The game, as expected, has it’s own tokenized economy called Nexium (NXC). Based on the Ethereum blockchain allows players to buy and sell in-game items like spaceships, skins, and cards. Developers are building an ERC-1155 model to evolve their digital assets further and provide true ownership to players.

Using Nexium, players can purchase unique items between different categories, including skins for spaceships and more. Players can take advantage of the blockchain benefits and trade their assets through Beyond The Void’s marketplace. There are also starter packs available and boosts.
