Axie Infinity: Origin is finally out!

Axie Infinity’s newest version, Origin is finally out and playable in both mobile and pc’s alike. It has finally been released and one thing is for sure, it took the whole community by a storm of feedbacks, reactions, and mixed emotions. First and foremost, the new version of the game is downloadable on Sky Mavis’s official site, and for pc users it is available on the sky mavis launcher. The soft launch of Origin is what the community expected and not expected it to be. As we predicted, origin is almost entirely a different game than Axie Infinity. As the new version was launched on it’s release date, it is still not confirmed whether the origin update will replace the whole original axie game, or if it is a entirely separate game from the current version. The community had lots of high expectations in the launch of origin. Players expected a more competitive atmosphere in the game, others expected a free-to-play experience, and some wanted the game to make them earn more money. Whether all of this are brought in by the launch of origin is still debatable for a lot of people in the community. In the market side of the community of Axie infinity, lots of people expected a high increase in SLP (Smooth love potion) from this launch of the game. They expected a new burning mechanism that will be introduced once the game has been released in the community. However after testing out the game once it was released, a lot of the players were disappointed after knowing that there was no such thing. These kinds of expectations from the community can’t be helped since the developers teased a lot in their posts regarding a big change once the release of origin is out. Putting a lot of great things about the game is guaranteed to make people in the community excited for it’s release. It gives them hope that after the launch will finally be a right step towards a bright future of Axie Infinity.

The content of the game itself is interesting in it’s own category. Once you logged in your current account in Axie Infinity, you would be greeted with a cutscene inside the game that has a full-on dialogue of characters in the game. After the cutscene is the tutorial for the actual gameplay of the game. It is indeed a different gameplay from the main version of Axie infinity. The cards are different, the mechanics are different and the whole play-style will be different for a lot of players in the community. As of now, only adventure mode is playable since the game also specifically stated that it is still in progress before being final. Completing stages in Adventure mode rewards a player lots of stuffs like runes, charms and 6 free axies in total. The first three axis are given once the player reaches the second stage of Adventure mode, while the other three are rewarded for reaching the final stage of the game. If your existing account already has a team of axis, then it can be linked in the game once you reach a later stage in the game. Apart from changing existing cards’ stats, passives and mechanics, it has also been increased to six cards for each axies that a player owns. This totals up to 18 different cards that can be used in a match. The energy system is also somewhat changed, instead of stacking up energy for the next round it has been changed where it resets to only three energy per turn. This forces players to come up of strategies for each turn while making the most out of the energies that they have. Certain mechanics are also added in the game, like buffing an ally using a card, targeting a specific enemy on the opposing team, and being able to pick/remove a card from your deck. The runes mechanics of origin is also interesting. It introduces a stat-stick buff type of mechanic for axies to have in the game. Currently there is only two slots for each axies to equip them with a rune. These runes gives stats like +Hp, +Attack, +Speed and more. This will give a players an upper hand if their team is equipped with amazing runes that is well suited for their axies. Runes can ba obtained after clearing stages in Adventure mode. It gives random sets of runes each time a stage is cleared. These new mechanics are still in progress, but gives the community an idea of what matches against other players will be once the game is complete.

It is up to the community for them to decide whether the wait was worth it or not after the release of this game. The developers put a lot of hype in this new version of Axie infinity. They made the community expect a lot from this launch, while hoping that Axie infinity will maintain it’s status from being the top play to earn NFT game in the market. We can’t be fully sure of what’s to come next for Axie infinity. It started out as an NFT game where players are able to earn by playing the game back then. But the developers are planning for the game to be a full-on game wherein there is a lore, an interesting and fun gameplay, and a community that is built on the game itself and not the earning aspect of the game. Just as what the developers stated before, they would not remove the ability of players to earn in the game but at the same time they will not focus on improving it as well. With that said nothing in this version of the game yet is final, since it is still in the early access phase of it’s release. Bugs are bound to pop up in the game, and issues will be found while experiencing the game. For now, the community will have to wait once more to see what the future holds for Axie infinity.

Axie Infinity: Origin finally launches it’s trailer and to be released on April 7!

After months of teasing, leaks, and rumors that had been going around in the community about the new version of Axie Infinity, Sky Mavis has finally released the launch date and the official gameplay trailer of the game. The trailer is truly promising and is bombarded with loads of information given to all the players waiting for the game. The new version is really like an entirely different version from the original.

It has new visuals, new designs, new game mode, and a much better experience with the game. We can see in the trailer that the whole user interface of the game has also changed as well, there is also a way to connect with friends online within the game! There will also be a new feature which are card upgrades that can be utilized to make your team stronger and climb the leaderboard. The trailer also presented a new mode where players gets to diverse in the world of Lunacian and a discover the amazing world of Axie Infinity.

Art styles, animations and game designs were not the only one changed in the new upcoming version of Axie Infinity, move sets, game mechanics are changed as well as adding a new system to the game. The developer team of Axie Infinity, Sky mavis added new features such as runes/charms, the new Rage mechanic, and more. We do not have an idea to which what these features are, and what they do in the game. Although they announced that on April 2, 2022, 10 am EST they will be having a stream on their official twitch account showcasing full gameplay of the alpha version of Origin. This will be a great opportunity for players to have an early look of what the game will be instead of waiting a few more days for it to come out. Other than that, we can expect that although the game will launch in a matter of days, it still a soft launch. This means that the game will only be available to a limited amount of people.

This new update will surely be the biggest update the community has seen in Axie Infinity. It will change the whole course of what we know about the game so far and make it into something that we can all enjoy together while earning at the same time. We can also expect the game to be more competitive than ever with the whole new leaderboard and ranking system as seen from the trailer and announcements from Sky Mavis.

This version of Axie Infinity might also be able to make a way for it to enter the mainstream of gaming, wherein it can be an official Esports game that many people will pay attention to just like League of Legends, Pokemon, Smash brothers and more. It truly shows what the founder of Sky Mavis “Jihoz” envisioned Axie Infinity to be. A game that will be more than a play to earn game. Based on everything we know so far we can assume that after the new update, Axie Infinity will be more than an NFT game. It is approaching to be something that will be enjoyed by gamers and traders from crypto alike.
