Ingress’ 38-City Event #13Magnus Begins Tomorrow in LA and San Jose

The largest global event in Ingress history, Operation #13Magnus, is set to kick off tomorrow in LA and San Jose. There, Ingress agents from the Enlightened and Resistance will battle each other to claim the cities for their own faction. On the heels of the massive Operation #Cassandra, Operation #13Magnus is said to dwarf its predecessor in size.

Possibly the most interesting aspect of these global events is that the outcome will actually change the course of the Ingress storyline. Key figures that appear in some of the cities of #13Magnus may decide to align with the winning faction, which can make for an interesting twist in the story going forward. With the Enlightened successfully winning Operation #Cassandra, the Resistance need to be ready for the events that are about to unfold in the coming weeks ahead.
