Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a new augmented reality mobile title Co-published and co-developed by WB Games San Francisco and Niantic, Inc.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is part of Portkey Games, the games label dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and video game experiences that place the player at the center of their own adventure, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories.
In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players begin as new recruits for the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, where they’ll work to investigate and contain a calamity that has befallen the wizarding world. Players from across the globe will come together to cast spells and return Foundables – artifacts, creatures, people, and even memories – trapped by Confoundable magic, to their proper place in an effort to keep magic hidden from Muggle eyes.
As players journey across the world, they’ll discover Inns that replenish their Spell Energy, magical ingredients for brewing special potions, Portkeys that unlock AR portals into iconic wizarding world locations and much more.
Combat in the title will take place at real-world locations known as Fortresses, key areas in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite that will host Wizarding Challenges, a mechanic Pokemon Go players will be familiar with. Players are encouraged to join forces in these battles to take on higher-level threats and unlock rare rewards.
