Update on Hexathlon from
We are aware that this announcement was released on another social channel earlier today. Below you’ll find the most up to date and accurate information. We apologize for the confusion.
We’d like to share confirmed details regarding the upcoming Perpetua Hexathlon on Saturday, February 29th.
You will have 30 minutes to hack the check-in portal to receive your instructions, followed by 90 minutes to complete six individual challenges. Agents who complete all six challenges will receive the Perpetua medal; those who complete the Hexathlon and place in the top 10% in their city for any challenge will also receive the Elite version of the Hexathlon medal. Additionally, any Agents who have earned an Elite Hexathlon medal from the previous Field Test event but do not reach Elite at the Perpetua Hexathlon, your scanner will maintain its Elite medal.
Registration through the in-app ticketing system will open next Thursday, January 16th 9AM PST. Registration will not be limited by site, meaning tickets will not run out.
All sites will be run in local time, using the following schedule:
2020-02-29 13:30: Check-in portal active
2020-02-29 14:00: Check-in portal inactive
2020-02-29 14:00: Hexathlon starts
2020-02-29 15:30: Hexathlon ends
Afterwards: up to your local community!
Collect at least 6 Media Artifacts
Make at least 36 successful portal hacks
Deploy at least 30 Resonators
Deploy at least 12 Mods
Gain at least 30 Glyph Points
Destroy at least 6 Resonators
We will also be adding new researcher character medals and Digital Readiness Kits for purchase. These will include new medal versions of the Osiris universe researchers Hank Johnson, Yuri Nagassa, and Roland Jarvis. We will announce the availability of the Digital Readiness Kits when they are added to the in-app store.
While the gameplay is similar to the Field Test from September 2019, this event is a Hexathlon, a new type of event developed through Field Test experimentation. Hexathlon will remain as a competitive event focused on individual achievement, while Field Test will continue testing new gaming mechanics which may potentially evolve into new events, just like Hexathlon.
While Hexathlon events do not have a physical venue, Agents are encouraged to organize community meet-ups and share photos using the #Ingress and #PerpetuaHexathlon hashtags.
We currently do not have plans to have additional events, such as GORUCK, OCF, or OPR Live. However, we will prioritize any applications for Mission Days for these cities to make it a fun-filled weekend.
We will continue to release information about this event as details are confirmed. We appreciate your patience and hope you are looking forward to these events!
