As announced by Sky Mavis, they will be releasing the next phase of their popular NFT game Axie Infinity. This was announced after the massive balance changes for both the economic and gameplay aspects of the game. The Origin (Battles V3) is a new battle system that will feature fast-paced combat and through this, players can play freely as it will give players three free starter Axies namely Olek, Buba, and Puffy. Along with these free Axies, the brand new interfaces, game mechanics, art, special effects, storylines, and an expansive onboarding experience will be released as well.

The Origin (Battles V3) update will be soft launched at the end of this month and as the update will be done in phases, it will be released on PC first so that the developers can gather feedback, test the scalability of the servers, and let the players get used to the new mechanics. Then after a month, the update will be ready for Android users. However, for iOS users, they’ll have to wait for a bit longer so that overloading the servers can be avoided.

Add to that, the upcoming update that will be soft launched will arrive in the game with limited features such as PvE story mode, Runes, Charms, training mode, and a ranked mode. The game mechanics will also be simplified, with Critical Hits now based on a rage meter instead of being random.

Sky Mavis also added that the starter Axies are not considered NFTs and they cannot earn the in-game currency of the game, Smooth Love Potion (SLP). However, there is still a possibility that these Axies may acquire SLPs in the future. To unlock more starter Axies, players must progress through the PvE Adventure Mode.

More updates will be released later on for the Axie Infinity Origin (Battles V3), which will include more cosmetics, NFT runes, and charms that will require SLPs and Mooshards to craft. This will serve as the “SLP burning” feature in the game.
