Niantic MMOARG Ingress plots a Magnus event series in California this weekend

While Pokemon GO is getting a new global eventIngress is getting a local event in the form of new Magnus events, starting with an event in Camp Navarro, California. It’s a bit of an odd location considering the campground’s official website promotes the idea that it’s not exactly known for having good cell phone service. Niantic will be providing that itself, but the event seems more like a kind of art project/tech retreat from the event description.

13MAGNUS, an original lore society that infiltrates other societies and splinters off (because the game’s lore can be a pretty detailed and difficult to navigate), is also a reference to a previous Ingress storyline that involved international live events that were more than simple PvP matches, but organized gatherings by Niantic that even involved actors. It seems Niantic is trying to up its immersion game by grounding things not in the virtual world but in the real world.

Haha, no, it’s a tad far for me to travel for this event. And I’m keeping out of the US for the next 3 years and 9 months.

There is a steady stream of Ingress tip coming from me to MOP. I didn’t tip about this in particular because I found it to be to small and local since they shove all HUGE/GLOBAL/MASSIVE events, happening and news to the MOP-UP-column. I guess I can start to appeal to the American spirit when I tip about Ingress.
