Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the brand-new location-based, augmented reality game you can play on your mobile. Created by Niantic, Inc. (the makers of Pokemon Go) WB Games San Francisco under the Portkey Games label, this is set to be the biggest game of the summer. Expect to see witches and wizards hunting high and low with their wands (mobiles) at the ready.
What’s it about?
A Calamity has struck the wizarding world, setting a whole host of mystical artefacts, creatures and even people loose across the Muggle world. To protect the wizarding world from exposure, you've been recruited by the Statute of Secrecy Task Force to help contain the Calamity.
How to play
Start by looking at the map to locate Foundables, Portmanteaus, Fortresses and more using real-time AR. Then use your skills to earn unique rewards, battle with teammates and save the wizarding world.
