Sky Mavis has released a demo of their land gameplay features for Axie Infinity. Landowners can login to the Sky Mavis Hub on their PC, and install Project K. Even though the demo is limited in its features, gamers can farm stones and rocks, create tools, while moving their Axies around.
The land gameplay demo will be available for a limited amount of time. Sky Mavis will pull the plug again on December 10th. Until that time players can make their land as nice as possible, as they have a chance to win limited edition land items. The cheapest land plots are currently listed for 0.5 ETH, which equals 313 dollars.
“This is a very very early build with limited gameplay”, the team wrote in their e-mail. The current build is just a sneak peak into the development progress for land. Ultimately players need to harvest resources, craft items, battle chimera, fight in dungeons, operate their own shops, or build unique experiences using a development kit. In addition the game will allow for cooperative gameplay as well.
What is Axie Infinity?
Axie Infinity is a tactical battle game in which two players fight each other using a team of cute creatures called Axies. These little weird balls of joy live in a world called Lunacia, and they come in all kinds of shapes in sizes. Their characteristics influence which moves they are capable of performing. They can be damage dealers, healers, or bad ass tanks.
Axies are deadly cute, that is an undeniable truth. But Axies are not only just cute, their appearance are almost unique. It is difficult to find two look-alike Axies since their body parts have various forms and shapes. There are more than 500 Axie’s body parts. Axies’ body and parts are classified into classes including Beast, Plant, Bug, Bird, Reptile and Aquatic, and more in future release. Moreover, the parts also come with four levels of rarity, which are Common, Rare, Ultra Rare, Legendary.
It is the battle system that makes Axie Infinity stand out. Axies will take turn to fight in a 3v3 battle. The Axies fight for their own will, but to win the victory, players need to a real strategist, from wisely choosing appropriate Axies for their team to placing them at the tactical positions. Soon the team will introduce land gameplay, their AXS governance token and there’s probably a lot more waiting beyond the horizon.
