Google Niantic Labs is unveiling their latest project. It is a new augmented reality game called Ingress. Yes, it is an actual augmented reality game. Unfortunately, the game is in a invite only stage. With Google behind this project, it’s bound to produce some amazing results and maybe even take augmented reality to the next level. There isn’t a whole lot of information on the game right now, but from the video you can see a few examples of what to expect. It’s a cool concept, hopefully Google will manage to execute it perfectly.
In Ingress, Players will have to generate a type of virtual energy that is needed to play the game. To do this, you have to pick up units of “XM” which you can collect through real-world surroundings. With this energy you collect you will go on missions around the world to “portals.” These portals will somehow be connected to libraries, public art and other major places, Talk Android notes. One of the best things about this game is that players will be able to play anywhere they are in the world. It isn’t limited to one specific area.
Again, Ingress is invite only at this point and their isn’t a lot of information about it. To sign up, you can hit the source link below.
