In a galaxy far away…
Hundreds of years ago, a people discovered the most powerful matter in the universe, called “the cube”. This marvelous discovery brought about a new kind of technology that enabled them to travel among the stars. Soon, however, reserves of the “Cubes” ran low. These people had to expand even further, and great noble families went to war to control the precious matter. With the help of its allies, the most powerful noble family brought about peace and founded a galactic empire. The families, known as houses, were the Harkon, Asgar, Syan, Morsith and Estherid.
Now, cubes only found in wild systems beyond the edge of the galaxy. The Barons of the houses will do anything to get them. Captains with powerful Motherships fight in their names for the control of the cubes.
Beyond the Void is an RTS (real time strategic game) with MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena) elements.
In a one-versus-one battle against another player, your are in control of one Mothership, among the most powerful warships in the universe. You can customize your Mothership with Skills, and can shape the map with Event cards.
Let’s see what the game looks like
The map of Beyond the Void, by default, contains 6 planets you can conquer and several asteroïd fields where you can find “Cubes”. The unique feature is that everything is moving, orbiting around the sun. Therefore, the map changes with each game.
Each map has the same gameplay setup, but a different ambiance: Explore the quiet blue galaxy, the red nebula where ancient artifacts are floating, or even the toxic system where mythic creatures evolve.
You can change the gameplay and map setup by using an Event card. This lets you enhance the game and rely on your favorite strategies.
Motherships are the most powerful warships in the galaxy. Each mothership has unique strengths and weaknesses. In addition to its unique design, each mothership has two powerful skills: An ultimate and a passive.
The ultimate is a powerful skill, specific to a mothership. It is unique and can be “game changer”, usually with a long cooldown. Learning how and when to use your ultimate can win the game for you.
The passive can be quite complex. It influences the gameplay of your mothership, from protecting your units to cloaking the units around you. The passive can change everything you know about the battle.
These two skills make flying a mothership a unique experience.
You can customize your mothership with three types of skills:
With these skills and your mothership, you can customize your gameplay to support specific strategies, and find original combinations to ensure your victory.
Your mothership can conquer planets during the game. Planets can build satellites and act as a defense tower too. If the enemy fleet comes too close, it will suffer the effects of the planetary defense system. Planets are the core of your domination over a solar system.
Destroy or conquer all your enemies’ planets to win the game.
Each planet you conquer can have two satellites that belong to one of the three main types:
You can build spaceships with your planet’s satellites. Your fleet can be composed of very different ships, from small fast frigates, to heavy destroyers, to support units that can repair your ships during battle or defend your asteroid field. You are in control of your fleet, and your success depends on how well you use it on the battlefield.
During the game, you can use technical satellites to research and develop new technologies for your mothership and fleet. For example, can unlock useful units like the “deployable defense system”…
Tech research satellites are still in the early stages of development.
Event cards can shape the world, change the rules, or bring content during the game. Before the match starts, you can choose one or more event cards to play. Each card has an effect on the game. It will change your experience and the “flow” of the battlefield. Every week, several cards are available for you to play for free. If you want to unlock a card permanently, you can buy it in the shop.
At the end of each game, you gain game points or GP. Of course, you gain more if you win and if you play in ranked. GP is a way for you to unlock content for free, and it’s the only way to unlock skills.
Do you want to look unique and amazing? There are several vanity assets in the shop to do that!
Each mothership has several alternate appearances that are available in the shop. You will find avatars, titles, and Holotags, too.
And if you want to unlock stuff faster, you can buy one of the Starter packs. These let you jump into the game with some motherships, skills, and bonus content already unlocked. Or, buy a “GP Boost” to gain more points at the end of a game.
Buying a skin automatically gives you the access to that mothership while you have the skin in your possession.
Beyond the Void is designed to be competitive. What it means is that achieving victory depends on your choice of strategies, your ability to make tactical decisions, and your dexterity at managing your mothership & fleet on the battlefield.
When you are ready, you can jump into a ranked game. This is a special mode with a rating system based on the classic Elo system.
Win games to “climb the ladder” and measure yourself against the best players. During your journey in ranked mode, you will evolve within the 5 leagues: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum & Diamond.
