Pokemon Go Beta has been going on in parts of the world these last couple months. The “field test” is now ready to expand to the United States and you can sign up now. Registration is now live on the Pokemon GO website, click HERE to sign up. You will need a valid email address, it must be Gmail or a Google account. You will need to indicate whether you have an IOS or Android device as well. You have the option to share your name and level in Ingress(Niantic’s previous augmented reality game). Now registering for the Beta does not guarantee that you will receive access. You will be contacted if you get access to the beta. If you get in you will also be asked not to share any content that you experience in the game in order to have an element of surprise to the players.
Trying to keep information about this game hidden hasn’t worked in the past seeing as we have seen videos of the field test from other countries find their way online.
Niantic had stated, “Because the game involves numerous people playing in multitudes of countries at the same time, we have a lot to test before we publicly launch. This is why we are asking for your help. We would love for you, if selected, to download the field test version and play it. Your regular gameplay and feedback will help us iterate, polish, and make the game launch ready. Please not that the app is still in active development, so it has a limited set of features at the moment and there will be things that don’t work properly. We hope that you as field testers understand this and will work with us to make the Pokemon Go game truly phenomenal.”
Your progress from the Pokemon Go Beta will not transfer to the full game when it launches. There is no information as to how long the test will be going or on when Pokemon Go will release. We just know that the game will release sometime this year.
I love Pokemon and will defiantly be signing up and hoping to get it. Are you guys ready to experience Pokemon in real life? Will you guys be signing up for the beta? Let us know in the comments below!!
