Niantic: an AR game played with 5G connectivity

It’s hard to overcome Pokemon Go’s place in the mobile games ecosystem. The game also gained great popularity for the developer, Niantic. With every step it takes being monitored more carefully, Niantic is working on a game that can only be played with 5G compatible mobile devices.

Niantic recently announced that it is developing the Pikimin mobile game with Nintendo. However, the company is also preparing to take advantage of fast mobile connectivity, which will become a part of life for years to come. The company confirmed their preparations and provided information on the concept demo called “Codename: Urban Legends”.

At first glance, the game looks like Niantic’s usual augmented reality (AR) games. Players can still communicate with their friends or enemies via their phones. It’s worth noting, however, that this time the focus is on the multiplayer experience. Players can interact with the same AR elements even though they are in different environments.

It is said that thanks to Niantic 5G support, players can collaborate 10 times more than before. The goal of this partnership is to take the competition in augmented reality games to another dimension.
