Axie Infinity, a popular blockchain game, released an alpha version of “Origin” on April 7 with significant changes to the rules and other aspects of the game.
The alpha version is a “test” version, so to speak, to get feedback from players before the official release.
Once Season 0 is officially released to reflect player feedback, the current version will be shut down, and items and crypto-assets acquired in the alpha version will reset.
Origin was initially scheduled to be released on March 31, but the hack forced a one-week delay.
Differences from Previous Axie
In Origin, you will play in a completely new Axie and rules, unlike the previous Axie Infinity.
The changes that have confirmed in the current alpha version are as follows.
|Previous Axie Infinity||Axie Infinity: Origin|
|First 3 Axies purchased||First 3 “Starter Axies” are now available for free|
|One “Attack” and one “Defense” per card||Only “Attack” or “Defense”|
|Cards and Energy carry over to the following turn||Cards, and Energy reset each turn|
|Akshay’s stats are “Speed”, “Skill”, “Morale”, etc.||Akshay’s stats are HP only.|
All types unify at 320 HP.
|There are nine classes, including Aqua, Plant, Beast, etc.||Types have eliminated.|
|Four parts (mouth, horns, dorsal fin, and tail) have cards.||In Addition to the four parts, the eyes and ears also have cards.|
|No power-up elements||Rune and Charms power up Akshay|
|Critical hits allow for more potent attacks.||Addition of an “anger gauge” in place of the elimination of essential hits|
In Addition, the game will be pretty different from the previous one, as cards unrelated to parts will be added, and card types will be changed.
Axie Infinity’s official Twitter page revealed that 227,128 people had joined as testers in just 12 hours after Origin’s release, and that transaction volume on the marketplace had increased by 430%.
They are currently looking for any feedback for Season 0 (official release) at Axie Infinity: Origin – Feedback.
According to the roadmap, they are considering a system that will allow players to earn rewards for completing missions and improving charm and rune crafting recipes.
