The game was the same: Players move in real-world smartphones and perform tasks.
with Ingress Prime Niantic is now attempting to create a largely untouched successor to the game, but it must evolve through better accessibility and constant contact with friendly AI sets. Netflix has also launched an anime series about the plot of the AR game.
This upgrade took place before the launch of the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, leading the series of lovers to AR. As Niantic has already added the findings of Pokemon Go in the development of Ingress Prime, you can draw conclusions from the new game in Harry Potter.
We attended an information event about Ingress Prime and learned a lot about the game we wanted to present to you.
Ingress Prime works like this
The story of Ingress Prime was taken from the headline and summarized quickly: Mysterious Exotic MatterIn short, XM appears all over the world. Now, we discuss two groups in the use of this item.
With the help of the Enlightened XM, Mighty Matter believes that it is a gift of humanity that must move on to the next evolutionary stage. Resistance, on the other hand, thinks that XM is unpredictable and demands that the material be collected and examined before deciding what to do next.
Players decide to start one of the two groups and then agents XM in the field, control nodes and rival rivals to collect opponents. And yes, they are literally entering the field!
Also provide Events in the worldLike anomalies for a change. Also, as in the Pokemon Go, organized by Niantic mass events. For this reason, many things have been designed for the draw and opposition of the players. A special feature is that the group of winning events, like anomalies, uses the live story of Ingress Prime in their favor. This provides another fun incentive to help you triumph in your lineup.

Augmented Reality – New World (Plus)
For data consumption
In AR games, the problem of data usage is always interesting. After all, nobody's cell phone contract data hunger Its app to appease.
However, according to Niantic, the entry requirement is limited. Scot's Frank Frank, the chief developer of Ingress, says he plays around. gigabyte data consumption per month That. Today's contracts, ranging from one to 30 GB, are quite acceptable. How much will this overlap with the flashy reality after it is launched?
also energy hunger There was already a problem in Ingress. Given the complex design of the user interface, it is necessary to fear that the rechargeable batteries will run faster under the weight of Ingress Prime. Niantic announced that they were constantly working to optimize the energy of their games.
Harry Potter: A test run for the Wizards Unite?
With Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, after another AR game with a powerful franchise in Niantic in the development of Pokemon. Therefore, the question and answer session, the question of whether the developer came up. Ingress Prime as a test environment It uses.
According to Niantic, findings from all pioneers were included in successive products. For example, they used information from the development and support of Pokemon Go to develop Ingress Prime. With Ingress Prime and later appearing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite this would not have been any different.
This may include live events where players have to do something. At the same time, we can get a learning AI next to Harry Potter, which appears in the role of a familiar character like Dumbledore. However, the integration of new AR features such as the above mentioned map can also be considered.
The embarrassing properties of broadcasting some spells or shaking the smartphone to announce the HP series of known spells are almost a good thing. However, it should be noted that our statements in the previous two paragraphs are speculations.
AR success even if you are not a big brand in the back?
According to Niantic, the new entry should not be misunderstood as a test environment, the developer would like Ingress Prime. independent game market. In the information event, another questioner wanted to know if AR-Games would be really successful with a strong brand behind it.
Niantic sees this differently: he believes there are many AR fans who can't do anything with Pokemon and Harry Potter, and they therefore prefer their own brand names such as Ingress Prime.
Ingress Prime is now available for Android and iOS and is available in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
