Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Is Coming Out This Year
The upcoming mobile augmented reality game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was fully unveiled on Monday in a news post on the game’s official website. It was announced late last year that the game would be delayed to 2019.
Here’s the game’s story premise, per the official website:
“A calamity has befallen the wizarding world, causing artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world. Witches and wizards from across the globe must come together to solve the mystery of The Calamity, overcome the confounding chaotic magic that surrounds these ‘Foundables,’ and return them to their rightful place, keeping them safe from Muggle eyes.
Your journey begins as a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, established by the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards for the purpose of investigating and containing The Calamity.”
According to the news post, players will be able to locate Foundables in the real world, cast spells, and can choose between several different “Professions” such as “Aurors, Magizoologists, and Professors”. They’ll also be able to find Portkeys, which can teleport players to different locations from the book series like Ollivander’s Wand Shop.
Players will also be able to work together by taking on Wizarding Challenges in Fortresses that dot the in-game map. Wizarding Challenges are described as “real-time multiplayer battles against dangerous foes, including Death Eaters and soul-sucking Dementors.”
