One month ends and a new one begins. March brings a new alpha, improved betas, and other highly anticipated releases to the play to earn gaming world. Let’s take quick look at some of these upcoming events.
As usual, there isn’t much time to sleep if you’re trying to keep up with all of the new projects and releases for blockchain gaming. But before you take that power nap, read below about a few big events in March to keep an eye on!
Axie Infinity Origin
Perhaps one of the most anticipated releases ever in the world of blockchain gaming, Axie Infinity Origin is expected to launch in March. This release is designed to attract new players to the game with a set of free Starter Axies. These starter Axies aren’t play to earn NFTs, but they do serve as a way to introduce new players to the game without having to open their wallets or sign on for a scholarship.
But perhaps most interesting of all will be the new gameplay. Turns aren’t cool anymore! Now players just play cards whenever they want! I’m not completely sure how this actually works out in-game, but I will be dusting off my dusty, old Axies to check it out!
Sandbox Alpha Season 2
Sandbox Alpha Season 2 begins on March 1st. And this time, it’s open to everyone! Anybody can make an account with Sandbox and download the game maker to access the Season 2 adventures. Complete quests and earn raffle tickets for a Season 2 Pass, which grants a nice stack of SAND tokens to the lucky winners!
I am continually surprised by new games coming from developers using the Sandbox. From standard adventures, jumping through holes in random walls that come at you, to side scrollers, to retro space defender-type games!
Heroes of Mavia Land Sale Delayed
Unfortunately, real life sometimes intrudes on the gaming scene. And this is unfortunately true now with the war in Ukraine. Ukraine has long been a hot spot for remote software developers, and so many development teams around the world have been affected. The Heroes of Mavia team has several developers in Ukraine and decided to delay their Land Mint until March 4th. Though with the conflict seeming to ramp up in the region, I would not be surprised to see it delayed further.
Voxie Tactics Beta
I know we talked about Voxie Tactics in the Games to Watch in February article, but if you passed by it the first time, this game is worth a deeper look. It’s free to play, offers opportunities to find equipment NFTs, and the devs do an outstanding job with their releases. Some games go months without patches, but the Voxies team has been working their tails off since the beta launch, releasing a new patch every week. They’re fixing bugs, balancing classes and weapons, and improving the UI. You don’t need any NFTs to play, though having your own does provide some advantages. You can download the latest version here (https://www.voxies.io/game-download).
After their initial NFT sale in the fall of 2021, NFT Worlds has quickly built a following. They have also put together a set of interconnected tools to help World owners create their own visions and easily incorporate play to earn features. Built on Minecraft, NFT Worlds created the WRLD token and already offers play to earn opportunities on their own server. They’ve also built an API connected to the token that allows for in-game payments and seamless token transfers. Soon there will also be options for staking and renting Worlds.
Phantom Galaxies Episode 2
The action packed AAA space fighting RPG Phantom Galaxies just released its second episode. So if you are one of the lucky owner of a Halberd-001 NFT, you can go ahead, update the game and play this new episode.
If you want to see and learn more about the game, check out our Phantom Galaxies video review and see for yourself what the game has to offer.
The team also just released a compensation program for the users who were victim of the project’s Discord hack that happened in November. Classy move from the team and Animoca Brands.
Pegaxy Gameplay Update
Pegaxy recently announced a few updates that were approved by the team and the community. These updates revolve mostly about breeding rules and cooldown times. The goal of the team is to stabilize the in-game economy and also rebalance the current distribution of Pegas races. Here is all you need to know about the latest Pegaxy updates.
NFT Drops, Breeding Events, and More
Aside from the few mentions above, there seems to always be something happening in the blockchain gaming scene. Generation One Breeding Events in Chumbi Valley, special drops for Champions: Ascension NFT holders, an ongoing treasure hunt in Genopets, paid racing in Riot Racers, just to name a few!
