Originally planned to be launched on March 31st, Axie Infinity: Origin has shifted the launch date by one week amid the security breach on Ronin Bridge. They’ve decided to give more time to the security team to identify the implications of the attack.
They say that the game was ready to launch today, but the security breach forced them to delay the soft release. Now, the focus is solely on the following week’s launch.
While the community awaits the launch, they’re dropping leaks and engaging with the members that can’t wait for the game to finally be playable.
With each passing day of the launching week, they will share something new with the fans.
Axie Infinity: Origin’s first-ever official gameplay trailer took over yesterday when they showed off the upgraded animations and art in the game. The trailer showed off the following upgrades:
- Runes and Charms
- Energy Resets
- Eye and Ear Cards
- Brand New Rage Mechanics
- Sequential Runs
Runes and Charms to be shared over the next week
Amid the delay in the launch, they’ll be sharing new Runes and Charms with the community. They have a social media contest going on in which you can participate and win a chance to make the final announcements.
