Gods Unchained Review

Gods Unchained is one of the most prominent crypto-infused games to date, offering an online trading card game experience where you verifiably own the cards, which are tokenized digital assets on the Ethereum blockchain. This means you can buy and sell the cards, which vary in rarity and value just like physical decks of cards.

The free-to-play game itself is similar to Blizzard’s immensely popular Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, with fantasy-themed character and unit cards that you play turn-by-turn in an effort to defeat your enemy. It’s a fairly close copy of Hearthstone, which means that it will be an easy transition for those who are already familiar with the game, albeit now with a crypto edge.

Curious about where to start? Here’s a look at how Gods Unchained works, how to play it, and whether you should invest your time and money in Immutable’s card game for PC and Mac.

How does the Game work?

Gods Unchained’s turn-based card game is not based on blockchain – it is the cards themselves that are powered by this technology. Each non-ordinary card is individually tokenized as a non-fungible token (NFT), a digital asset that is verifiably authenticated and can be bought and sold at will. In most games, including competitors like Hearthstone and The Elder Scrolls: Legends, cards are simply part of the game experience provided to you by the publisher. There is no real ownership in them.

Gods Unchained instead mimics the physical card games that inspired these digital versions, such as Magic: The Gathering, by allowing you to buy and sell individual cards. Just like physical card games, rare digital cards in Gods Unchained can be very valuable; in February 2019, a “Mythic” card sold for a whopping $62,000.

How can i get the Cards?

When you start the game, you’ll start with 70 free cards that will let you use the different base decks in the game. Many more cards are available through expansion packs. You’ll get card packs as you level up by playing matches, and you can buy additional packs with real money to get random additions to your collection.

Packs are sold in Rare, Epic, Legendary, and Shiny Legendary varieties. At the time of writing, these packs cost $2.49, $6.99, $24.99, and $149.99, respectively, and each offers just five cards at different rarity levels. Immutable also sells chests that contain six packs each, available in Rare ($14.99) and Legendary ($149.99) variants. The difference with simply buying multiple individual packs is that chests can be stored and traded later, potentially increasing their value.

In the meantime, individual cards can be bought and sold through the in-game marketplace, giving you the opportunity to improve your deck with important additions or profit by selling rare and/or duplicate cards. To do all of this, be it buying packs or buying/selling cards, you need to connect an Ethereum wallet (like MetaMask) to the game. This will allow you to use all of the Gods Unchained cards and items in your wallet in the game itself.

You need ETH to buy anything in the game, and you can buy it through the game’s Wyre plugin if you don’t already have the cryptocurrency in your wallet.

    As a former Hearthstone and Yu-Gi-Oh! player, this game combines the mechanics I like about HS and the “stock” option of Yu-Gi-Oh into one game. Although this game is still in beta and there is still a lot for the team to do, they have made amazing progress so far and there is a lot more to come. I’d say if you’re a fan of Hearthstone, get on board!
