Niantic's Rework Of Ingress Could Make Pokémon GO A Better Game

Niantic's Rework Of Ingress Could Make Pokémon GO A Better Game”

As part of the celebrations, trainers will also be able to catch rare shiny variations of Ponyta and Cubone within Pokémon Go. Once players hit the level cap in Ingress Prime, they can now roll back to level one and gain unspecified "unique benefits" - with their prestige status also reflected to other players.

Speaking of Pokemon Go, it will celebrate the new game's launch with two new shiny Pokemon - Cubone and Ponyta - though we don't yet have an exact release date for those events.

Earlier today, Niantic sent out a press release announcing the release of Ingress Prime, a sequel to their popular Ingress mobile game.

The company says it has spent six years working on improving Ingress, and are keen to share with both existing and new players to new innovations introduced in Ingress Prime, which are said to build on the multiplayer gameplay, narrative integration and real-world experiences of the original geared towards veteran and new players. It certainly feels like this could be added to Pokmon Go properly in the near future.

In Ingress Prime players (dubbed agents) are tasked with visiting virtual portals situated around real-world landmarks in order to collect "Exotic Matter". And for returning players, there's a nice primer of everything that's new. Just like the Gyms players can do in Pokémon Go, the more portals your side captures, the better.

Ingress Prime is now out on Android and iOS and it serves as a new "season" of Ingress, so to speak. 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.

And it seems likely that we will get more crossover events between the two games, as both are run and managed by Niantic.
