  • Pokemon GO News Level 40 players may get Prestige mode soon after Ingress Prime release

Ingress Prime is designed for the iPhone and all iPad models.

Niantic has a new free game. The biggest difference is that Ingress Prime will be driven by an ongoing, evolving narrative that will be influenced by real-world events.

Niantic has not revealed when this event will end, however, so be sure to grab them while you can before the game's next major event.

Several quality-of-life improvements have been added to Ingress Prime, such as quick-swipe menus, inventory management, the ability to link a Facebook account as well as new security features. Players also belong to one of two sides and compete for all the world's portals.

Many GO players have hit the level cap as well - especially since the implementation of the friendship system.

An AR mode for Pokmon Go has also been much-requested by fans. Niantic have now announced that Ingress is getting an overhaul. In other words, Prime pushes the reset button on the game's story and gives players a clean slate. It's a line I've heard Niantic use before, but the words "Pokmon Go is the world's best onboarding tool for Ingress" have never been more accurate. Ingress has always had the image of being a geeky game very few could comprehend, with a mobile app that speaks to that nature. Niantic is playing up the rivalry between Ingress' two teams - Resistance and Enlightened - which will likely appeal to devotees of PoGo's Mystic, Valor and Instinct. The overhauling and expansion include an anime series airing in Japan and global via Netflix in 2019 and a live-action web series.
