Niantic has announced plans to bring back Pokémon GO Fest, set to return to Chicago on July 14-15. This news comes just weeks after Niantic settled a $1.5 million USD class-action lawsuit for the failure of the first Pokémon GO Fest.
Getting up right after being knocked down, this year’s event, titled “Pokémon GO Fest 2018: A Walk in the Park,” will take place at Chicago’s Lincoln Park, where a 1.8-mile strip will be host to “exclusive activities for Trainers of all ages.” Niantic has not addressed how Pokémon GO will handle the problems last year’s inaugural event was marred with, such as server failure and poor connectivity, but it’s likely that the event will pay particular attention to customer service.
Pokémon GO Fest 2018 single-day tickets will go on sale on May 11 for $20 USD each. Head over to Pokémon GO’s website for more updates and let us know if you’ll be joining the event.
For more gaming news, Fortnite is crossing over with Avengers: Infinity War.
Get ready to mark your calendars, Trainers. This summer is heating up with an exciting lineup of Pokémon GO events all over the world! It’s time for Pokémon GO Summer Tour 2018! #PokemonGOSummer https://t.co/3ZpIMt7yJ1 pic.twitter.com/UqhBTB9RLH
