Google’s Augmented Reality Android app Ingress BETA released

By -

Google has recently released a latest unique Augmented Reality Android game, Ingress BETA from the  Google’s Niantic Labs, which is a future-based reality game set up in a virtual world, pretty complex! Isn’t it?


“Our future is at stake. And you must choose a side. The world around you is not what you see.”


This is something you get to know from Google-owned Niantic’s latest perfectly hyped Ingress android virtual reality game.


Google-owned Niantic Labs has recently released a new advanced, unique virtual reality game for Android Smartphones named Ingress. The new app Ingress is currently in Beta-invitee only mode. Ingress is a virtual reality game and has managed to get perfectly hyped and now is everywhere on the internet.


Ingress is basically an augmented reality game that uses a smartphone’s GPS to create an alternate version of the real world where players fight for territory against opposing factions, and is not available for Tablets, as of now. Some of the developers before have managed to make some GPS games based for mobile markets, but none have been too particularly successful. With the backing of the search engine giant – Google, could Ingress redefine the future of virtual-reality gaming? We will just have to wait and watch.


The game uses complex capturing systems that allow players to capture nearby building and areas located by using your GPS. Players can work together to capture a bundle of close-by areas to expand their faction territory, or fight to gain other factions’ territories. Ingress will probably be very player-involving in popular cities, but in less-populated areas the game could prove to be very unsuccessful. Playing with thousands of players at once could become a possibility, but you might find yourself alone in less populated areas.
