Disaster looms as magic runs amuck within the Muggle realm. “Harry Potter Wizards Unite,” an exciting new augmented reality game recently unveiled more details its latest trailer.

Cleverly crafted by the creators of Pokemon GO, Wizards Unite brings Harry Potter powered playtime into the Muggle realm. Free roaming magical creatures and activity threaten sorcery’s secrecy and its up to players to find a fix.

Some time ago, “Harry Potter Wizards Unite” announced its arrival (2017). This AR game comes to life courtesy of developers at Niantic. Of course, gameplay is similar to that of Niantic’s “Pokemon GO” AR smartphone game.

Deductive Wizardry

Unfortunately, Nifflers on the loose, a marauding “Monster Book of Monsters,” sinister spiders and more leave “Traces of magic” in the Muggle realm. Using the magical app on a smart device, would-be-wizards roam the globe to gather spell energy. Use this energy to fix fantasy faux-pas that should never leave the Wizarding World.

“As you cast spells, you’ll consume Spell Energy. Be sure to regularly stop by Inns, found at Muggle locations around the world, to collect food and drinks that replenish your Spell Energy. While exploring, you’ll also come across ingredients that can be used to brew Potions, which will aid you in different aspects of your Wizarding World journey. These ingredients can be found on the Map, varying by the environment, weather, and time of day, as well as in specially designated Greenhouses.” –Wizards Unite

Uniting Wizards

Immersive experiences, including visits to familiar Potter places, like Ollivander’s Wand Shop, add excitement to this interactive adventure. Training opportunities and team play give “Wizard’s Unite” magic users even more advantages.
mystery“Test your combat skills by visiting one of the multiple Fortresses indicated on the Map. Fortresses are host to Wizarding Challenges, real-time multiplayer battles against dangerous foes, including Death Eaters and ferocious Werewolves. You won’t want to face these threats alone–gather your friends to take on threats of even higher levels and recover rarer magical Foundables from within the Fortress walls.

To further develop your wizarding skills, you can also choose to specialize in different magical Professions. Aurors, Magizoologists, and Professors each have their own unique skills and abilities that will come in handy at different times, particularly during Wizarding Challenges. Team up and strategize with witches and wizards from other Professions to tip the scales in your favor.” – Wizards Unite
