Looking for a release date of Axie Infinity on the major consoles and Switch? Axie Infinity is an NFT-based online video game supporting the cryptocurrency trade. Want to start on a bitcoin journey but don’t know how to? Do all those tutorials on cryptocurrencies and blockchain sound boring to you? Then, Axie Infinity might be the best way for you to educate yourself on blockchain technology. To start playing the game, you will need to buy at least three starter Axies, the game’s main characters. Axies serve the purpose of cute little pets who will fight battles for you and earn rewards in the process. The wildly popular video game is now available on Android and PC platforms only. But, are there plans to release Axie Infinity on other platforms? Read this article to know.
There are two Ethereum-based cryptocurrencies, AXS (Infinity Shards) and SLP (Smooth Love Potion), in the game. You can trade them on platforms like Binance. So, the game follows two video game economy models: pay-to-play and play-to-earn. Wondering what the fuss surrounding Axie Infinity’s recent update is about? Well, the new update, which was released four days ago, features a major divisive decision by the developers.
Axie Infinity on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch?
Axie Infinity was developed as a video game that educates people on cryptocurrencies and blockchain. However, most players have taken it as an opportunity to earn money. As a result, the main motive of playing a video game is slowly dying in Axie Infinity. To tackle this situation, the developers have now restricted earning SLPs. A player with an MMR (match-making rate) below 800 will not receive SLP tokens from Adventure, Arena, or Daily Quests. Thus, a player who isn’t grinding hard enough in the game will not receive in-game currency. While this proves that the developers still consider Axie Infinity a video game first, there are still no official plans to release the game on consoles or Switch. Keep reading to know more.
Unfortunately, no official release dates have been announced regarding the release of Axie infinity on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch. It is also hard to imagine a blockchain-based video game on consoles. However, you can play the game on your Android device or PC. It was available on beta for iOS devices via TestFlight. But, the beta program is now full, so iOS users will have to wait till new slots open or the official release. Hope this article answered your query!
