Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an AR game, similar to Pokemon Go, by the same developer, Niantic. Niantic plans to hold events similar to Pokemon Go Fests for their new game as well, but it’s still too early to confirm. The developer has launched a cinematic trailer for the game which aims to show that the game teleports the players into a wizarding world filled with magical creatures, Dementors and Death Eaters.
The game combines content and characters from the original Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beast films to make a magical world for wizards. The game provides an AR overlay map of the real world through which the players can navigate and explore. The journey begins as a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, for the purpose of investigating and containing The Calamity, that caused artefacts, creatures and people to appear in the Muggle World.
The game has definitely grabbed the attention of the Potterheads, who cannot wait for it to launch. The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will rollout in the US and UK first and then on to other regions. The game will be available for both Android and iOS.
