Origin, the free-to-play version of the popular blockchain game Axie Infinity, is finally now available via Android. The release lets the game take “one step closer” to its full global launch which will include token rewards, crafting NFT runes/charms, and the first Origin leaderboard season with AXS prizes.
“With 3 free starter Axies and this mobile release, Axie Infinity is now more accessible than ever!” –Sky Mavis, Game Developer
The mobile release came after the initial launch on desktop or laptops via Sky Mavis’ distribution platform Mavis Hub which went live a month prior. (Read more: Sky Mavis Announces Early Access Release of Axie Infinity: Origin)
Alongside the mobile release, Sky Mavis also installed a patch with a “flurry of updates and upgrades.”
The developers upgraded 16 aspects of the player interface, and the Bloodmoon curse will now start during round 15 instead of round 10. Also, all status and rune effects will activate simultaneously which will make matches faster-paced. Lastly, to further improve the player experience, Sky Mavis also added a “Full HD Graphic” option in Settings.
The developers also deployed improvements and bug fixes such as the reduction to a relative volume of the opening sound that signals the start of a match. Scry can’t be canceled anymore, it is a bug allowing people to look at their next drawn cards without spending energy.
The mobile version of Axie Infinity: Origin is downloadable here.
Further, Sky Mavis disclosed that the timing of the global launch will depend on the feedback they will receive over the coming months.
