Ingress’ Prime relaunch paves way for new features in Pokmon Go

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

We all know that Pokemon GO is also an early AR app developed by Niantic Labs, but the first foundation of its idea came from the Ingress. The biggest difference is that Ingress Prime will be driven by an ongoing, evolving narrative that will be influenced by real-world events.

Several quality-of-life improvements have been added to Ingress Prime, such as quick-swipe menus, inventory management, the ability to link a Facebook account as well as new security features.

If you're ready to jump back into the world of Ingress - that is, the real world - you can now get the game for free on Android and iOS.

Upon completing the training, players must choose a side between The Enlightened and The Resistance, two factions battling for control of these landmarks and the fate of the world.

And it seems likely that we will get more crossover events between the two games, as both are run and managed by Niantic. After almost two-and-a-half years, more players will soon be hitting the cap and looking for something else to when that happens. Last month, Niantic showed off a prototype "Pokmon GO AR Garden" experience at a Tokyo technology event - and Niantic boss John Hanke was snapped trying it out. Niantic have now announced that Ingress is getting an overhaul.

Ingress Prime offers a more impressive vision of the game that the developer has introduced before. It's a line I've heard Niantic use before, but the words "Pokmon Go is the world's best onboarding tool for Ingress" have never been more accurate. The Dunraven Project live action series will replace the Ingress Report and a new Netflix anime based on Ingress Prime will launch in the future. Ingress Prime's HUD and overworld have been retooled in 3D, in a design which looks very similar to that of Pokmon Go's map layout.
