With over 1.5 million global installs across all platforms, Axie Infinity: Origins is a card-based strategy game where players collect, own, and use an infinite variety of creatures called axies to battle. Players can take down evil chimeras in Adventure Mode or challenge other players in the Arena to reach the top of the leaderboard. Sky Mavis launched Axie Infinity Origins, which enables players to enjoy the game with free non-NFT starter Axies, in order to improve accessibility and remove points of friction for players to be able to join the Axie Infinity universe. Sky Mavis is collaborating closely with Google and Apple to bring feature parity to mobile users, which will enable the company to achieve its vision of fostering a player-owned digital nation.
Additionally, Sky Mavis has announced the Mavis Market, a curated marketplace where users can buy, sell, and showcase NFTs powered by Ronin, Sky Mavis’ proprietary blockchain. Starting on May 17th, select collectibles from third-party Game or Dapps developers who deploy on Ronin will be available on the Mavis Market for purchase. With the Mavis Marketplace, Sky Mavis is building upon the success of Axie Infinity and its marketplace to enable third-party games to add key features that enhance ownership, interoperability, and future cross-game integration.
“Sky Mavis remains committed to our vision of a player-owner digital nation and is excited to work with app stores to open our ecosystem to a new generation of Lunacians,” shared Trung Nguyen, Sky Mavis CEO, “The launch of both Axie Origins on the app store and our very own Mavis Marketplace is an important step towards creating more accessible and dynamic web3 gaming experiences. We have exciting updates on the horizon, including the much-anticipated release of our merch store, and are thrilled to continue to provide our community with more ways to engage with the Axie Infinity brand.”
Axie Infinity is a Web3 game where players battle, collect, and trade digital pets called Axies. Axie is the first game designed to be owned and governed by the community that plays it. Players have complete ownership over the in-game assets and can generate real-world rewards for their in-game activities.
