Activision Blizzard INC (ATVI) Share Value Rose While Fmr LLC Cut Stake
Capital Bank & Trust Co owned 0.06% of Activision Blizzard worth $28,501,000 at the end of the most recent reporting period. Activision Blizzard, Inc . shares increased 0.78 percent over the past week and rose 1.25 percent over the previous month.

The "AR Plus" feature appears to be a deeper version of the game's current AR mode, which basically replaces the background of the catch screen with a live feed from your phone's camera. Not only will be pokémon be more accurately positioned and sized according to their surroundings - and how near or far you are from them - you'll also be able to go closer to trigger a special capture bonus.

When in AR+ mode, Pokemon will now know how close a Pokemon Trainer is to them. Imagine looking up at a massive Onix or walking around a huge Snorlax blocking your path! If you scare a Pokemon, you can tap around the area for another potential chance to catch it. "This feature brings us one step closer to truly realizing Pokémon the way they are supposed to be represented in the real world", said Niantic. To reward Trainers who show sufficient tracking skills, there's a new Expert Handler bonus which will unlock a greater amount of XP and Stardust.

Add Niantic's claim that Apple's ARKit mode sucks down less battery than Pokemon Go's original AR mode, and perhaps it's more than a passing novelty now.
