Niantic Celebrates Ingress Prime Launch by Adding Free Items to Pokémon Go

'Pokemon Go' to Add New Shiny Pokemon to Commemorate Launch of 'Ingress Prime'

Niantic is realistic about Ingress Prime's audience when compared to the Pokmon phenomenon, but as Ingress is Niantic's own intellectual property, it is able to experiment within the game and around it more freely - and then apply learnings to its other titles. Along with a much needed tutorial system for new players. This application nearly has the same features with the Pokemon Go, but the only problem with Ingress before is that, the software and smartphone hardware before can't cope up with the AR trend. It is a global battle for supremacy that will take place in the real world. The new onboarding tutorial now explains the basic gameplay mechanics, the storyline, how to uncover and control Portals, and also how to acquire Exotic Matter (XM).

The team at Niantic is now hoping some of the features in the newer version of Ingress can be implemented into GO eventually.

That's what Ingress Prime aims to change.

California bar shooter was Marine, had mental health review
Helus had served for 29 years in the sheriff's office and was soon planning to retire, The Washington Post reports. He killed 11 people inside the bar and one of the first cops on the scene before taking his own life.

But now that our technology has made big advances throughout the AR trend, it is just the right time that Niantic Labs overhauls the old Ingress, to be introduced as the Ingress Prime. Ingress has always had the image of being a geeky game very few could comprehend, with a mobile app that speaks to that nature. Which ultimately means new recruits for both factions.

Agents can work alongside faction-specific AR programs, which shape the story of Ingress. There's also an anime series coming to Netflix, The Ingress Anime, which is launching next year.

Ingress Prime is now available for both Android and iOS. They actually even get a new badge that tells everyone they're an old-timer. Although we do not cover Ingress regularly on the Hub, we do cover it to some extent on Metahub, our sister website, where you can get all the latest leaks and information about Ingress Prime.
