In an attempt to make public transit more accessible for that portion of the population, Google is introducing new "wheelchair accessible" routes in Maps' transit navigation, starting with six major cities.

This is made possible after Google announced that it's opening up its universal mapping platform to allow game developers to create real-world games more easily. "Users from all over the world can experience the Ghostbusters virtual world through our game, leveraging Google's location data".

New Maps APIs turn existing geographical features like buildings, roads, and parks into Unity GameObjects so that developers can just focus on customizing the environment to fit the look and feel of their game.

The new Google Maps software development kit could enable the next Pokémon Go. Google Maps has also been updating its Street View imagery of transit stations and city centers so that people can preview a destination or transit station ahead of time.

As said by Clementine Jacoby, to make a mixed reality or an augmented reality game, developers need to first comprehend this real world.

We explain the plans here, but one of the titles to stand out most so far is The Walking Dead: Our World. Today, the studio - alongside AMC - have revealed that The Walking Dead: Our World will be powered by Google Maps.
