Pokémon Go is stated to get an iOS update that will deliver more advanced augmented reality for fans
All thanks to ARKit, the Pokémon Go is stated to get an iOS update that will deliver more advanced augmented reality for fans. The upcoming update will leverage Apple’s much-hyped AR platform – ARKit and is guaranteed to deliver more immersive and better gaming experience to its users. The inclusion of this new technology would add greater depths to the game play and would allow Pokémon characters to grow and shrink as per the environment. These characters will now be able to flee if they detect unexpected movements or in case the player makes a rather quicker approach to catch the characters. Sounds interesting, correct? Let us talk a bit about AR before we dive into the features and gameplay.
The latest update is all set to make your gaming experience more interactive and enjoyable
AR is a technology which is utilized to project life-like images into real-world settings. Apple’s ARKit feature would allow iOS developers to make use of iPhone and iPad software as well as hardware to intelligently place characters in the real world. So, next time when you find Charizard or Pikachu right in front of you, do not lose it! You should thank ARKit for making your gaming experience awesome! The latest update is all set to make your gaming experience more interactive and enjoyable. How would it work? The demo by Niantic employees has ensured that fans of Pokémon Go will keep the game’s AR mode turned on at all times. And the reason behind it is that the inclusion of AR tech brings enhanced and augmented reality features that the fans would love. In addition to the realistic game-play, the update would also feature new bonus for capturing characters. They have termed it as “expert handler” and it involves the player to sneak up close to a character, capturing it while not scaring it away.
The capture mode in this update is new and improved as the characters would move around in more realistic way
As per the developers, once you open tap a character from the world map screen on the Pokémon Go app, your phone’s camera would open up and animations/characters would start showing. They claim that the capture mode in this update is new and improved as the characters would move around in more realistic way (all thanks to ARKit technology). When asked about the impact on battery life by keeping the AR mode on, developers said that with ARKit feature, they intend to make use of the digital camera alongside gyroscope and similar in-built features in the phone and that will be high in performance and low in battery usage.
Analysts believe that this newest add-on will be able to hook-up player’s interest in the game
This release has made quite a stir in the fan base of the widely acclaimed Pokémon Go and players are looking forward to getting a taste of the newest advancements in-game. With newer in-game action, rewards, bonuses etc, we believe Pokémon Go will grab a steady share of the market and Apple would be launching more apps based on the ARKit technology.
