Fans of Harry Potter and mobile games can now download Harry Potter: Wizards Unite from Niantic, the makers of Pokemon Go. The game is free to download and play on both Android and iOS. There are in-game purchases.
The game is an AR game, and in the game, the player will take their phone outside, just as they do with Pokemon Go. As players move around, there will be content that appears in the real world. This includes things like magical artefacts, creatures, people, and memories.
The goal of the game is for the player to help prevent magic from being seen by muggles in the muggle world. The map will reveal traces of the magic indicating the location of Foundables in various real-world locations.
These will trigger richly detailed 3D encounters in full 360-degree advanced AR. Players have to cast spells to defeat the magic around the Foundables to safely return them to the wizarding world.
