Today, Google’s Niantic Labs released the Playing Ingress tutorial video giving a first-hand look at the ins and outs of how to play the real-world adventure game. The video gives an in-depth introduction to the gameplay mechanics and key tactics players will need to know before jumping in and becoming full-fledged Ingress agents.
Ingress represents an all-new style of game featuring innovative massive multiplayer mobile gameplay which transforms neighborhoods and cities around the world into an interactive experience filled with mystery, intrigue, and adventure. Using Google Maps and GPS technology, players move through and explore the world around them, visiting historical sites, parks, and public artworks to discover hidden ‘Portals’ leaking a mysterious fictional energy into the world.
To follow along with the dynamic and evolving storyline of Ingress, Agents can watch the Ingress Report, a weekly online news show chronicling the events of the game. Niantic Labs also recently unveiled Ingress Obsessed, a new series of video diaries from two sister Ingress Agents chronicling their early adventures with the game.
Ingress is available for free on iOS and Android and can be downloaded at www.ingress.com
