Google’s Niantic Labs have officially dropped the beta tags that having been hanging off their location-based MMO called Ingress for quite some time now. That means this game is now available for everyone who happen to want to get in on the action. Originally this game was supposed to drop its beta tags on December 14th, 2013 but for whatever reason it has happened today instead.
For those of you not familiar with this game, Ingress is a location-based MMO that is themed around a mysterious energy that has been unearthed. The problem with this is that it is influencing the way people think, or at least that is the current belief. Whether this is good or bad remains to be seen but it has caused a split in the human population, creating two factions that everyone falls under – The Enlightened and The Resistance.
Ingress officially went into a sort of open beta back in October of this year and Niantic Labs announced in November that it would be officially released on December 14th, 2013. So if you happened to have been waiting on that day for it to officially launch but nothing happened, you can now grab the game off of Google Play for free. You can also read about all the details from the #13MAGNUS event conclusion over on the official Ingress blog post.
