Pokémon Go Is Trying To Win Players Back With New Co-Op Feature
Pokémon Go has been released in July 2016 and everyone was excited about this game, but it didn’t take long for most of the players to leave it. The concept of the game was quite easy as you will just need to walk around and search for Pokémon and, of course, catch them.
The game also comes with in-app purchases for additional game items that will help you in your journey. The game has received some mixed reviews, as some critics were praising the game’s concept, but there were many technical issues, which also made many players leave the game.
At the end of February 2017, Niantic has officially announced that the Pokémon Go has surpassed 650 million downloads, but that’s not that good if most of the users have just uninstalled the game from their devices. According to John Hanke, the CEO and founder of Niantic, Pokémon Go currently has 65 million monthly active players, which is quite impressive if this is true.
However, it seems that the developing company is trying to lure some players back to Pokémon Go, as according to the latest reports, the mentioned title will receive a co-op feature. We’re not sure yet how this co-op feature will actually function, but it is believed that there will be some sort of “raid bosses” where two or more players will be able to join in order to defeat them.
If this turns to be true, we think that there are very high chances that some players will return to the game. In addition, we think that there will also be new players that will try out this game just because of this new feature, as there are many co-op fans out there.
We think that in the following weeks Niantic will come with some details about this co-op feature that will hit Pokémon Go.
