Axie Infinity, a popular play-to-earn game, announced today it’ll be releasing game updates as soon as next week.
“We are still working on the final details, but one feature will change how Axie levels reset when sent to a new account. Once this new update is released, an Axie’s level will reset to level one when gifted.” the developers said in a statement.
In this update, just the act of giving the Axie will reset its level and will no longer require Axies being synced in-game.
“We realize this could impact your breeding methods, so we wanted to inform you early on so you can make any necessary adjustments. Ultimately, these changes are needed to prevent abuse of the energy system.” they added.
Accordingly, the September updates of the game features acceleration in the development of the upcoming battle system, Axie Infinity: Origin also known as Battles v2 and Land Gameplay. (Read more on: Axie Infinity Unveils September 2021 Updates)
