Axie Infinity Origin is the next step in the evolution of the popular NFT game Axie Infinity. Here is its official gameplay trailer.

Axie Infinity Origin Release Date: April 7, 2022

Axie Infinity Origin will be rolling out on April 7, 2022, making the game downloadable on the Mavis Hub.

Axie Infinity Origin is the evolution of the popular Axie Infinity game. Once regarded as a maverick in the NFT gaming space, Axie Infinity continues to lead the way in what NFT games are capable to do. In this new game, players will be given a starter set of Axies – unlike in the original game where all Axies have to be bought or traded. According to Sky Mavis, the new game will focus more on Play and Earn instead of the Play to Earn ethos. That means gameplay and player enjoyment should come first over any monetary value players can get from the game. Any Axies players own from the classic Axie Infinity game will still be usable in Origin.

While being the most popular and arguably most successful NFT game to date, Axie Infinity and its publishers, Sky Mavis, are not immune to NFT blunders and security issues that arise from a decentralized financial structure. Recently, hackers made off with $600 million worth of cryptocurrency when they drained Ronin Bridge – Sky Mavis' defi network – 173,600 ETH and 25.5 million USDC. This security breach has been the biggest attack on cryptocurrencies to date in terms of the monetary value affected. Such is the risk of using a decentralized financial network – whose problems could only be solved by – well, making it more centralized.
