Google Ingress Battle – Edinburgh
Gamers from all over Europe are travelling to Edinburgh in November 2015 to take part in a alternative reality battle.
Ingress was created by Google Niantic Labs. The players compete to capture local points of interest including landmarks and art.
This is a game which has been dubbed a battle for mankind’s future.
The game play requires players to run, walk or take a bus to visit locations and complete missions. The game is a combination of both physical activity and technology.
Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh, becomes the focus for the UK Ingress event which is known as Abaddon.
Whilst playing Abaddon the players battle for control of groups of portals, each of these portals is a point of interest in Edinburgh. They will use their smart phones as scanners and their physical endeavour to keep going.
