Google’s Niantic Labs has dropped a new multi-player gaming platform for mobile users, dubbed Ingress. Your real-world location is turned into a virtual world, by way of virtual layering after your location’s been determined. Users fight for territory against opposing factions while the game is sure to take Augmented Reality to new heights. Complex capturing systems 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.
Currently an invite-only beta application, you can gain access to Ingress by applying here.
