INGRESS PRIME: BETA TEST STARTED
INGRESS PRIME: BETA TEST STARTED
Recently, users began to receive an invitation to participate in beta testing of Ingress Prime. According to some sources, at the moment less than 10 thousand invitations have been sent, on what principle invitations were sent - is unknown, but most likely it was done selectively from three statistics: 1) the most active agents, 2) top agents with a lot of experience, 3) trusted agents (Vanguards).
It is known about the second stage of invitations, which, according to the message, they were sent on September 27-28.
Agents who were supposed to receive an invitation to the ingress Prime beta test, but who did not receive them today, also received letters informing them that they will receive an invitation within 48 hours. Today was only the first wave of invitations. Tomorrow is expected the second and day after tomorrow the third. Don't forget to check your email.
At the moment, in the store for beta testers Test Flight (iOS developers), there appeared such an application from Niantic. Downloading it is useless, because you can get it only by invitation.
System Requirements for Apple Users. It is worth noting that Niantic no longer supports iOS 7. Minimum requirements: iOS 8 and iPhone 5S, iPad Air WiFI, iPod Touch Sixth Generation. Perhaps closer to release, this will be changed.
From AMA September:
- ROOT-devices will not be supported in Ingress Prime, as well as, for example, in PokemonGO. But most likely it will not be a big problem, as there are several ways to hide ROOT, for iOS users with JailBreak, status unknown.
- Perhaps in Prime we are waiting for daily (weekly, etc.) bonuses and the third faction. But only after the second phase of entering the game - server updates.
- In Ingress Prime, the process of introducing new agents into the game will change significantly compared with the current version of Ingress. Most likely they will launch a new series of anime on the motivation of the game Ingress (:D rofl).
- Developers read user questions. After upgrading the servers, when the company can allocate resources for new features, many of the ideas proposed by players will appear in the game. But no one knows what functions are interesting for administrations, because they love to make surprises :)
Main list of changes:
- All portal menu buttons moved down and became round.
- Agent profile has practically not changed, the missions are visible, the medals are in the same order, the order cannot be changed.
- Unique portals are currently no different from ordinary.
- On maximum scale, circle for shooting with information is not visible, need to zoom in (possibly a bug).
- Portal keys are in a separate tab and scrolled vertically, unlike the rest of the horizontal inventory.
- Mods are also divided by types on billboards, farm mods and lamps separately.
- Visual display of the number of shields on the portal.
- Ability to rotate the screen with one finger.
- All functions of the main view went to 1 button at the bottom and became round, by clicking on which an attack, inventory, comm.
- According to "Variety", the leading American weekly, covering the events in the world of show business, the head of #Niantic John Hanke announced that the release of Ingress Prime is expected together with the release of anime based on the Ingress storyline around October 2018 year.
While the show is entirely new material, the story line overlaps with the ongoing story of the original “Ingress” and will be used to introduce “Ingress Prime,” the sequel to the original augmented reality game. Both the show and game are expected to launch around October, Hanke said.
But, given the fact that Niantic promised to send invitations back in July of this year - we won't be able to get a public new version of the game soon... For example, it took the administration 5 years to fix spam in scanner (just made one parameter limiting large message flow).
And instead of blocking the bots in the game - they removed Guardian, but the situation with bots and hunters is not fixed, only large unsatisfied from ordinary players.
