Niantic introduces CATAN – World Explorers a multiplayer augmented reality game that captures entire Earth into a CATAN

Niantic, Inc. is an American software development company based in San Francisco, which is best known for developing the augmented reality mobile games Ingress, Pokémon Go, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The company was formed as Niantic Labs in 2010 as an internal startup within Google. Now the company has announced its upcoming multiplayer augmented reality game CATAN – World Explorers that captures entire Earth into a CATAN.

Over the years, Niantic explorers have made our games a regular part of their daily lives. Our unique form of real-world adventure gameplay includes live events–Ingress anomalies, Pokémon GO Fest and Safari Zones, and Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival–where our games come to life. They inspire our players to explore parks and cities to unlock fun experiences, exclusive gameplay, and new friendships. While the ability to explore the outdoors together in familiar ways is currently challenged, we are hard at work building what’s next.

Harvest, trade, and build in the real-world as cities and landmarks are transformed into opportunities to collect resources and build settlements. Explore your world to collect classic CATAN resources – Brick, Lumber, Grain, Ore, and Wool. Some resources will be abundant in your region, while others you’ll have to trade for.

The players need to team up with old friends (and make new ones) as you strategically construct roads, expand settlements, and race for Victory Points. Players will compete with their team simultaneously at local and global levels, and with friends in custom personal matches. Prevail as a seasonal champion and win rewards that follow your character into future seasons!

However, the company has not yet announced the launch date of the game and what will be the basic requirements of the game for playing. You can visit the official website for pre-registering to receive the latest news and updates regarding CATAN – World Explorers.
