Niantic Announces Real-World Ingress Events Across The Globe

Will run from April of this year to next May

The next season of real-world Ingress events will take place in 48 cities around the world, developer-publisher Niantic announced today.

Since launching the mobile augmented reality game back in 2012, Niantic has hosted more than 2,000 real-world Ingress events "that immerse players in unique storylines and take them on an adventure together to complete objectives which change based on player activity onsite and at events happening in tandem throughout the world." Niantic's follow up to Ingress, Pokemon Go, turned out to be a full blown phenomenon when it was released in 2016, letting players catch Pokemon in the real world with their smart phones. Looking to the future, the developer is planning a full-scale reboot of Ingress, called Ingress Prime, with all new storylines and technology. Ingress Prime is expected to launch sometime this year.

At the events, players are encouraged to work together through unique storylines and objectives throughout cities and neighborhoods. The entire list of cities these events will be coming to over this year and next, as detailed by Niantic in a press release, are as follows:
