An unknown force known as “the Shapers” has come to Earth in attempt to evolve humanity; do you fight back and join “the Resistance” or embrace the force with “the Enlightened”? This is the first decision you must make to join Ingress, a real-world mobile adventure game played on Android phones and tablets, and on iOS later this year. Developed by Google’s Niantic Labs, Ingress was introduced in 2012 and has been downloaded by over 2 million players worldwide. Ingress players, or “agents”, span across cities and neighborhoods around the world with active gamers in more than 100 countries globally.
Ingress breaks the mold of mobile gaming by creating adventures in the real-world that encourage players to explore public locations and communicate with other agents. After joining either “the Resistance” or “the Enlightened”, agents compete against the opposing faction to create “Control Fields” by linking “Portals” over geographic areas. These “Portals” are found in locations with creative energy — such as city landmarks, historical sites, and museums — and emit energy known as Exotic Matter, or XM, that is actually ordered data that form messages from the Shapers. XM also gives an agent his or her power.
Ingress codes for highly valuable Ingress in-game items are very valuable to Ingress users, but are relatively rare. Niantic offers a limited number of these Ingress codes occasionally, but they are typically redeemed quickly given their high demand and the high volume of players competing for them. Luckily for Hint drinkers, there’s another reason to grab a bottle of your favorite water, because these valuable, unique Ingress codes are available under the caps of select Hint bottles. These single-use Ingress codes give players a good power-up of energy (XM), weapons (XMP), and resonators based on player level.
As Ingress’ motto tells its users, “it’s time to move” and Hint is the perfect beverage to keep healthy and hydrated during for real world adventures on foot.
