The long-awaited Origin version of Axie Infinity was released this Thursday, April 7, through its official site. This version kept a large part of the community anxious, waiting for new changes in the popular P2E game.
Access to the new alpha version, for the moment, will only be available for desktop, expecting new updates in the coming weeks for Android and iOS users.
Currently, this version of Axie Infinity will be available with the classic format that was being developed, this until the unification of both systems is viable and rewards can be offered in AXS and SLP within Origin.
Axie Infinity: Origin is live in Early Access!
This is a very early version of the final product and we will be upgrading it quickly over the coming weeks and months.

The alpha version of Origin will be a test for the community to get familiar with the new style and format, learning how to play and have fun.
How to join Axie Infinity Origin?
It is perhaps one of the first questions you may be asking yourself, but it is quite simple. The first step is to download the Mavis Hub installer, from where the installation of the game will be managed.
This installer is the same that we have used for the classic version, but the update allows you to access both versions of Axie Infinity.
At this point it is necessary to know if there is an existing user profile created or if we want to enter with a new account, in given case, we explain you both processes.
For existing accounts:
As reported by the Axie Infinity team, all existing accounts in the Sky Mavis marketplace were successfully migrated to the new version, so to play you only need to log in to Mavis Hub and then install Origin using the usual credentials.
Once inside Origin it is necessary to synchronize the Axies using the button that will appear on the home screen in the upper right area.
For new players:
In case you are a new Axie Infinity user, the situation requires formalizing the registration through the registration link, where after that you can start playing immediately you have activated your account.
For those players who feel ready to buy some Axies other than the ones the system gives for free, it is necessary to create a Ronin wallet, make a deposit and then log in to the marketplace by linking the wallet.
Changes and new elements of Axie Infinity Origin
Axie Infinity Origin will have a number of new features aimed at making battles more interesting, inclusive and balanced.
- Graphical improvements: where each creature shows more striking aspects and expressions.
- Dynamic battles: these changes allow changing strategies and games that require diverse fighting skills.
- Card changes: not only graphically, but also in terms of characteristics and statistics.
- More inclusive entry: allowing entry to the game in a free mode.
- Eyes and ears cards: these parts of the body had not been considered for the classic version, giving them importance in Origin.
- Enhancers: an element that can considerably change the strategy, Runes and Amulets offer to enhance each user’s game.
- There will no longer be critical hits: which caused a great discussion, however, these were replaced by the mechanics called rage.
The importance of community feedback
New changes and improvements in the game’s features will be based directly on the opinion of its community, so they have arranged several channels to do so.
The first one is through social networks, where the hashtag #AxieOrigin will be the key to be read by the community.
On the other hand, a direct channel was enabled with the Mavis Hub team through a comments section where you can report bugs, opinions on the balance of the new system or even recommendations for the graphical part.
