Sidus Heroes

Free-to-Play | Play & Earn
Available on: Windows

Sidus Heroes is a turn-based RPG title that takes players to a whole new world in which technological advancements have reached a level where they have merged with all living beings, becoming as one with them.

The game adopts a player-driven economy to enrich its players’ experience, mixed in with storytelling and complex strategic gameplay depending on both your own team as well as your enemy’s composition.


Sidus Heroes offers both PvP and PvE experience to cater to both types of players. However, the PvP aspect is more rewarding and gives players more exciting and satisfying battles. The Arena is where you want to go to kickstart your gaming session. It offers players a battleground for your team of 3 characters to face other contestants for rewards.

There are a lot of factors to consider when forming your team, including their races, origin planet, abilities, and stats. Every hero has its own characteristics, stats and performs different roles in the team.

In addition to that, they possess different ammunition, clothes and talents. Heroes are redeemable through the website once you lock any of the NFT Heroes collection. Depending on the rarity of the Original NFT Hero, you will receive a Common, Epic or Legendary Hero in the game.

The Hero you receive is upgradeable and will become stronger the more quests and battles you win with it. Heroes have weapons and various slots to boost their stats, or even grant them new skills and abilities to their already existing skill set. Players can even add pets to the equation to give their lineup boosts or debuff their enemy.

Pets can be adopted, or in other words bought, through the shop and they can be earned as well from completing certain missions. You are free to have multiple pets within your inventory, but can only equip one of them before going into battle.

Sidus Heroes adds a layer of political and economical complexity to the player’s experience as well. The game’s universe consists of; planets, solar systems and the Central Station. Whenver the Central Station or the planet you belong to has a major decision to make, your role as a citizen and $SENATE holder enables you to vote and direct the future of certain sectors of Sidus Heroes.

How to Get Started

The only way to play Sidus Heroe at the moment is to acquire a Genesis Hero NFT from the collection on Opensea, and an item to equip on your Hero as well if you want. 

Once you buy it, you are required to lock the NFT for a 365-day period without the possibility of an early unlock. This redeems an in-game Hero for you to play with corresponding to your locked NFT’s rarity.


Sidus Heroes succeeds in delivering an enriching and gripping universe with its sci-fi universe and unique planets. The turn-based gameplay is relatively lackluster to say the least, but leaves room for you to rethink your strategy once the match is over and adjust accordingly before going into the next game.

An additional major setback is how heavily gated the actual game is and the number of hoops an interested player needs to go through to even try Sidus Heroes. The initial investment to even see how the game looks isn’t the direction web3 gaming is heading towards at the moment, and more often than not pushes players who want to enjoy a well-made game and attracts those with “earning” as their only interest.
