Shortly after the release, Pokémon Go became one of the most popular games available for Android and iOS. While the company’s plans to bring other AR titles didn’t go according to plans, Niantic Labs has been pretty consistent in bringing new modes for Pokémon Go. In a recent announcement, the company revealed that it will be bringing multiplayer mode to the game in the coming months.
According to the official announcement, developers are currently working on a multiplayer feature named ‘Buddy Adventure’ to provide a shared AR experience. When the new mode rolls out, it will allow players to see how their friends interact with their Pokémon in real-time.
The company expects that it will bring a new level of immersion for its players. In addition to shared AR experience, the feature will support cross-platform which will make it easier to play with your friends. For instance, you will be able to select your friend and join them with another player.
At the moment, it’s unclear exact time for the release of the upcoming feature. As we move forward, we should learn about the development in the coming weeks.
