The well-known game Axie Infinity, which revolves around animals owned by players called Axies, has reached a crucial milestone. However, Apple has granted its approval for the App Store to publish the Origins version. A new era for mobile gaming and NFT integration has begun with Apple’s approval of the first game using externally purchased Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) to be made accessible on its platform.
Axie Infinity Origins
Origins was made accessible on the Google Play Store in Malaysia in December 2022; however, it had fewer features. This action was taken to give the development team a chance to polish the gameplay. Before entering new markets, the gaming experience has to be improved. Origins have now been released on the App Store in other nations in Asia and Latin America using a similar strategy.
Players may utilize their own NFT Axies bought externally or choose from the upgradeable starter Axies offered within the game in the early iOS edition of Origins, which offers them an intriguing alternative. Both choices are compatible with the game’s Adventure and Arena Modes.
Nevertheless, some restrictions have been applied to adhere to the current App Store guidelines.
Making in-game objects is only one of these restrictions. Small Love Potion (SLP) crafting recipes require desktop or Android APK versions, whereas Moonshard crafting recipes are available directly from the app. While claiming these awards in-app will no longer be an option, players will still be able to earn SLP through gaming on the iOS app.
What is Axie Infinity?
Axie Infinity is a game that combines blockchain technology and online gaming. It is based on cute creatures called Axies, which can be collected, bred, battled, and traded by players.
Axies have different forms and abilities, and there are billions of possible combinations. Players can also earn resources and collectibles by playing the game, and use them to create their kingdoms on a virtual planet.
Axie Infinity is a leader in the play-to-earn gaming model, which rewards players for their participation and contribution.
With more than 2 million daily active users, the game has become quite popular in recent months. The game has also drawn criticism for having a high entrance barrier because it requires users to buy three Axie NFTs before they can begin.
