Huge Ingress event at Google I/O!
Do you love Ingress? Are you going to I/O? Well then, you could be in some very rare company!
The team at Niantic are hosting a very special Ingress event, as well as giving every I/O attendee a code to play the game. They are encouraging everyone to go through Field Agent training first, but seem keen on setting San Francisco as the scene for an I/O Ingress dogfight!
The game is currently in closed beta, so this is a rare treat for those attendees who don’t yet have their pass. As you can see below, the events take place after hours, with one coinciding with the After Hours Party on the 15th. That party, in an email sent to Android Authority, is touted as providing a “magical experience.”
The full text from the Ingress portion of our email is below. Are you going to I/O? Interested in Ingress? Let us know! Android Authority will be there!
Ingress, exclusively for I/O registrants
We’re pleased to share that all Google I/O 2013 registrants will be given an exclusive opportunity to play Ingress, the massively multiplayer geo game that was recently launched by Google’s Niantic Labs and is currently in closed beta. We’ll be hosting games on both Tuesday, May 14th from 4- 6PM at Moscone West (1st floor), and on Wednesday, May 15th from 7- 10PM at the I/O After Hours Party at Moscone West (3rd Floor). There will also be a major Ingress-wide game event in San Francisco the evening of Thursday, May 16th from 7- 9PM which I/O attendees are invited to participate in.
Within the next 48 hours, an Ingress code will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org to your preferred email for I/O communications. We encourage you to set up your Ingress account in advance of the event and begin your field agent training. We’ll also have staff on hand throughout I/O, starting on Tuesday, to help you make the most of this innovative mobile gaming experience.
Finally, don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn more about the design vision behind Ingress in the I/O session on Wednesday, May 15th at 3:30 PM.
