Apple to offer Axie Infinity on Apple’s App Store

Sky Mavis has come out with their created online game called Axie Infinity: Origins. According to the company, the game will soon be made available for all of the inclined users to engage with through Apple’s App Store. In this situation, the users will be able to download the game on their individual iPhones and keep the bigger picture in mind. This will be a move in the direction of creating further acceptability of the Web3 gaming arena.

Axie Infinity is a play-to-earn crypto game that was released during the covid period, due to which the company witnessed a major amount of its users dropping off. The latest version of the game, Axie Infinity: Origin, was released in the year 2022. In this game, players get involved in competing amongst themselves and, in the bargain, obtain NFTs for trading purposes, as well as earn rewards. Now, it will be possible to download the game on Apple’s App Store. The company also feels this will be the opportunity to redeem some of its lost user base.

As per their plans, in the beginning, they will be releasing the game on the App Store in only a few countries belonging to Latin America, as well as Southeast Asia. According to the Co-Founder of Sky Mavis, Jeffrey Zirlin, this move has been carefully thought out so as to be able to gauge the mood of the players before they go all out globally. Apple users will be able to take advantage of this situation in countries such as Argentina, as well as Columbia, Peru, Mexico, Venezuela, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Vietnam. 

There are great expectations of the company where the game is concerned. As per information released by the company, it is the highest-grossing online game as of now. There are over 1.5 million downloads that have taken place. During the Covid period, the game managed to bring in $4 billion in terms of trading volume. The game has generated an immense amount of interest in the case of gamers, old and new.

In the month of April 2023, Axie NFTS carried out $2.3 million in the form of trading through 140,000 transactions. However, the downside is the fact that in the year gone by, Lazarus, which is a North Korean hacking group, managed to siphon off over half a billion dollars when the entity decided to utilize its own chain by the name of Ronin.
