Pokémon GO Adding AR+ Mode To iOS Versions Of The Game
Niantic revealed in a press release today that the iOS version of Pokémon GO will be getting an upgrade with AR+ Mode. No information was given as to an official release date, only that devices from the iPhone 6 and up running iOS 11 would be able to use the new update. Below are some of the key points about the update from their release, but keep in mind that you do need an updated version of the OS to run it, so many of you who have been refusing to update your iPhones out of fear of whatever Apple will mess up, you’ll have to pick between being left out of the experience of just letting your phone run the update.
After activating the new AR+ feature in encounter mode, individual Pokémon will be more accurately positioned based on their surroundings and environment thanks to the six degrees of freedom the technology provides. By utilizing ARKit’s advanced 3D AR scaling, a Pokémon’s size will be more accurately based on the world around them, changing in perspective and size as Trainers move closer or further away. AR+ mode also adds new dynamic gameplay to Pokémon GO encounters that will provide Trainers with more ways to catch Pokémon. Trainers can now get closer to a Pokémon to receive a special capture bonus, but Pokémon are aware of the physical proximity of Trainers, so they must approach carefully as it may flee if a person comes too close too quickly. Getting closer to a Pokémon using AR+ has unique gameplay benefits, including being awarded the new Expert Handler bonus, which provides more XP and Stardust.
