Calling all wizards! Pre-register now for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Harry Potter Niantic Reveals Muggle-Approved AR Game, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

Harry Potter fans have been clutching tightly to their phones ever since the announcement of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite-a follow-up to Niantic's Pokemon GO mobile game.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will appear on Android and Apple iOS devices in 2019.

Wizards Unite layers its universe on top of the real world.

We know that your main objective will have to do with defeating a calamity that's infecting both the Muggle and Wizarding World. Cast a variety of spells to overcome the Confoundable magic, keep the magical Foundables safe, and send them back to the wizarding world. In short, everything important to the wizarding world has been scattered, and-in accordance with the International Statute of Secrecy, a law created to protect the wizarding world from Muggles-you are recruited to the Statute of Secrecy Task Force to keep the secrets of magic contained.

As you step outside and explore the world, the Map will reveal Traces of magic, highlighting the location of magical Foundables. Also like Pokemon GO, players are split into teams, or "Professions" in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite: Aurors, Magizoologists and Professors.

Those Foundables will function basically like Pokémon in Pokémon Go-players must hunt them down down in the game's augmented reality, but then, instead of catching them, players will destroy or neutralise them with spells.

And that's not all because this is meant to be more of a multiplayer experience (like Ingress) than Pokemon GO.

Spells used by players will cost Spell Energy, which players can replenish at "Inns found at Muggle locations around the world", the website reads. These ingredients can be found on the Map, varying by the environment, weather, and time of day, as well as in specially designated Greenhouses. Fortresses are host to Wizarding Challenges, real-time multiplayer battles against risky foes, including Death Eaters and soul-sucking Dementors.

There's also the chance that Niantic will invite you to the early access program for Wizards Unite, although this isn't guaranteed. Wizarding Challenges are described as "real-time multiplayer battles against risky foes, including Death Eaters and soul-sucking Dementors". There will also be Portkeys, which you reach by unlocking Portmanteaus, to get a look into iconic Harry Potter locations.

Battling beasts will be more complicated than capturing Pokémon on Pokémon Go.
