Ingress game getting a revamp next year

The revamped sci-fi game will be called Ingress Prime and it will come with a more polished up-to-date

Augmented reality games developer Niantic Labs isn't just working on a Harry Potter franchise project for 2018, it's also going back to before its Pokemon GO days with a reboot of its original hit game, Ingress. Instead of capturing Pokemon, however, players in Ingress capture "portals" for one of two opposing factions (Enlightened and Resistance) in a futuristic, sci-fi setting. The game has been downloaded over 20 million times since its launch in 2012. Graphics-wise, Ingress Prime will be much more appealing to players than the original version, but it will also be more user-friendly. From how it sounds, Prime will be a top-to-bottom reboot, with new art, a new story, and an entirely new design that can take advantage of updated mobile technology, most specifically including tech from Apple's ARKit, Google's ARCore, and a move to the base platform used in Pokemon Go.

Ingress Prime will build upon the foundation of its forebear, bringing with it a completely redesigned user interface and sound design.

"When Ingress first launched five years ago, we helped create a new genre of games that foster exploration, discovery, friendship, and exercise", said John Hanke, founder and chief executive officer of Niantic, in a statement. Additionally, the global game board will reset as part of the new storyline, with current Agents able to retain all of their current in-game progression, level and items in Ingress Prime.

Whether or not an eighth national title arrives in Oklahoma this year, a sixth Heisman Trophy is on its way. The Sooners separated themselves from the Horned Frogs in the second half en route to a 41-17 victory.

The first teaser is mostly cinematic in nature, and doesn't dive into the updates and new features, but it's still a very cool introduction to the world of Ingress for newer players... So basically this is huge news for people who stuck with Ingress even if Niantic was busy building up Pokemon GO.

Ingress Prime will be offered as an update to owners of the base game.

In addition, an anime series set in the Ingress world is being developed.
