Pokémon Go was and is a huge success for the US developer NianticBut before the fans masqued the neighborhood with their smartphones to capture the legendary Japanese pocket monsters, Niantic had an iron with Ingres in the fire. The game was the same: Players are moving in the real world with their smartphones and doing tasks.
with Ingress Prime Niantic is now trying to create a successor who is leaving the game very intact, but on better availability and friendly AIs that should be evolving through contact with players. Netflix also launches the anime series on the plot of the AR game.
This update will take place before the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite game, in which magic wizard lovers join the AR world. Since Niantic already contains insights from Pokémon Go in Ingress Prime, you can draw conclusions from the new Harry Potter game.
We have been involved in the Ingress Prime information events and have learned about this game of details that we want to present to you.
That's how Ingress Prime works
The story of Ingress Prime was taken from the forerunner and is quickly quoted as: Mysterious Exotic matterIn short, XM is discovered around the world. Now two factions are arguing about the use of this substance.
The enlightened believing that XM is a gift to mankind, which, with Mighty Matter, should move on to the next development phase. However, resistance, on the other hand, considers XM to be unpredictable and requires material to be collected and explored before deciding what to do next.
Players decide to start for one of the two factions and then move like agents in the field of collecting XM, control nodes and suffering enemy competitors. And yes they literally go to the field!
Please state also Events in the worldas an anomaly, for change. In addition, as with Pokemon Go, organized also by Niantic mass events. Much is therefore proposed for players' cohesiveness and opposition. The peculiarity is that a winning group of events, such as anomalies, leads Ingress Prime's live story to their advantage. This provides another playful incentive to help the faction to win.
The new AR function is currently being developed for Ingress Prime: One Living area mapwhich we can present on the smartphone in our table.
In New story of mushrooms the progress of history is always displayed in the app, so new players are quickly updated. The developer tracks the desire of the community to offer better reach at the entry level.

Niantic explains that they used feedback from their predecessor to improve Ingress Prime. Primarily Easy to use user interfaceTo make it even more intuitive, "Real AI" will return to Ingress Prime.
Each faction gets its own little one AI helper, This AI should be adaptive and adaptable, depending on how players communicate with it.
Ingress's user interface was reviewed by Ingress Prim. Addition The inventory system has been revisedto make them clearer and easier.
Extended Reality – New World (Plus)
For data consumption
In AR games, the question of data usage is always interesting. After all, nobody wants to change the cell phone contract to hunger data soothe its application.
According to Niantic, however, there is limited entry. Chief Ingress, Scot Frank, says he's playing around one gigabyte of data per month Yippee. This is quite acceptable with today's contracts ranging from 1 to 30 GB. How much it matches the playful reality will take effect after the start.
Also energy hunger was already in question at Ingress. Due to the complex design of the user interface, it is to be feared that the rechargeable batteries will run even faster under Ingress Prime weight. Niantic explained that they are constantly working to optimize the energy of their games.
Trial Run for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite?
With Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is next to the Pokémon Go next AR game with a powerful franchise in the back of Niantic. In the question and answer question, therefore, the question was whether the developer Ingress Prime as a test environment using.
According to Niantic, findings from all of the ancestors are also incorporated into successor products. For example, they have used Pokémon Go's development and support information to improve Ingress Prime. That would be no different from Ingress Prime and later emerging Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
This could include live events where players have to do things together. We can also get Harry's Potty Learning AI, which then appears in the role of a well-known character such as Dumbledore. But also the integration of new AR functions such as the above-mentioned map is possible.
Submersible magic features such as swinging the smartphone to collect certain spells or report an HP license to famous spells are a pretty good thing. However, it should be noted that our statements in the previous two paragraphs are speculation.
AR success even without a big brand in the back?
According to Niantic, the new entry should not be misunderstood as a test environment, Ingress Prime's developer wants independent game market. Another information event questionnaire wanted to know suitably whether AR-Games could become really successful, with a powerful brand on the back.
Niantic sees it differently: He believes there are many AR fans who can not do anything with Pokemon and Harry Potter and therefore prefer something "neutral", that is, own brands such as Ingress Prime.
Ingress Prime is now available for Android and iOS and is available on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
