FAQ

Hexarcha is a chess-inspired war and strategy video game set in the greatest historical eras of our past, where powerful soldiers and warlords compete to prove their supremacy.

Hexarchia takes chess as a point of reference. Much like in chess, Hexarchia rules are easy to learn but hard to master. You will need just a few minutes to learn how to play Hexarchia!

Hexarchia is the first video game that combines the quality and fun of traditional AAA video games with the economic incentives allowed by the blockchain technology. It is not just a simple game to collect trivial NFTs, but an unprecedented gaming experience in the world of blockchain video games.

No, Hexarchia offers a gripping and engaging gaming experience comparable to that of traditional AAA games. That is not achievable in browser games. You will need to download and install the game on your PC.

Currently Hexarchia will only be available on desktop PC with Windows (64-bit) operating system. Support for other desktop and mobile platforms is already planned.

Not yet, currently Hexarchia will be released only on Windows desktop computers, the mobile version will be released in 2022.

At the moment we are in the pre-alpha state, but the closed alpha (with a default maximum number of players) will be playable by October 2021.

The only thing you need to do in order to be able to play the alpha is creating an account on this website. If you create a premium account you are 100% sure to participate in the alpha, otherwise if you create a standard account you have the opportunity to participate based on the remaining free seats not occupied by premium accounts.

The main difference is that premium accounts have a 100% chance to participate in the Pre-sale of the Warlords and to play Hexarchia Alpha that will be released in October 2021. In addition, premium accounts will have several benefits such as special roles in our Discord, and access to our Premium newsletter.

Hexarchia Premium subscription is life-time long. The current price of 0,99 euro will be available ONLY up until the start of the pre-sale. This special offer is exclusively dedicated to attract early-adopters and innovators who believe in Hexarchia and understand the long-term vision of this project.

Of course! Hexarchia is a long-term project. Its development stages are Alpha (October 2021), then Beta (Q1 2022) and lastly the final release (Q3 2022). Even once you get to the full release, the game will be constantly supported with free updates.

After the final release of Hexarchia (Q3 2022) there will be free updates every 3-4 months, plus special seasonal events.

Each update will bring with it new ancient civilizations plus various novelties that will change from time to time: new maps, new Pve and PVP modes, balancing, etcetera..

No! Hexarchia will always be a game 100% Free-To-Play, you don’t have to pay anything to download Hexarchia and be able to start playing. The only thing to do is to create an account on this website and choose whether to have a standard or premium account (paying 0.99€ or 1 Matic).

As the alpha comes out (October 2021) more and more information will be released on the website and its official social channels of Hexarchia.

As in AAA video game standards, minimum technical specifications are necessary to be able to play Hexarchia optimally. However we’ll do our best to support even low-end devices.

The best way to interact with other Hexarchia community members (aka Hexarchia Commanders) is to join our Discord Server and follow us on Twitter where we are mostly engaged at the moment.

The NFTs of Hexarchia are divided into three rarities: classic, epic and legendary. The more you climb with the rarity and the more the quantities are limited. In addition, their aesthetic appearance changes radically, from classic weapons such as gladius, katane, pickaxes, etc...up to epic swords worthy of the best fantasy video game.

Hexarchia takes chess as a reference game: from 2 to 6 players will clash with their troops on a hexagonal board with strategy shots as long as only one player will remain with their soldiers alive.

To win a game you must kill the Commander of the opposing troops. The Commander is like the King in chess, if your Commander dies you lose the game, if you can kill the enemy commander you will win the game.

Each Hexarchia match is divided into rounds. Each round has two distinct phases: the strategic phase and the executive phase. In the strategic phase all players have a limited time to decide the moves to perform. At this stage you won’t see what moves your opponents are making and they won’t see yours. Once the strategic phase is over you automatically move to the executive phase where all the moves players made previously will simultaneously be executed, creating often surprising and unexpected results.

Hexarchia is clearly PvP oriented. The gaming experience has been designed to ensure a healthy and competitive level of play between players. However, a single player mode will arrive with future updates.

Absolutely not! In no case spending cryptocurrencies on Hexarchia allows you to win games more easily than those who don’t spend anything. Hexarchia is designed to ensure a level of competitiveness between both novice and veteran players. The only thing that counts on Hexarchia is the skill of the player himself. Please note: pay-to-win and play-to-earn are very different and somewhat opposite concepts.

The golden rule to win matches is to learn to predict the moves of the opposing players. "If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle" ― Sun Tz.

There are two types of characters that make up a player’s army: the simple troops and the captain of the troops. The captain also has a "special version" (more details will come in the future).

Each piece of equipment in Hexarchia will be a NFT. Right now available equipment consists of weapons and shields. There are multiple kinds of weapons such as swords, axes, hammers, greatswords, etcetera. In the future, armors will come too.

NFTs will be customizable in-game based on their Ascension level. However the customization system will be introduced in the Beta. In the Alpha you won’t be able to customize your assets.

The level up of warriors and weapons will not be available in Hexarchia Alpha, we will share more information about it at due time.
