We’ve realized that Niantic’s upcoming location-based AR game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite would come Android in the near future, on account of the recent betas in New Zealand and Australia. Starting the previous evening, the official Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Twitter record declared the official release date for the US and UK, and we just have two more days to hold. That’s right, Wizards Unite will be accessible for download on the Google Play Store on June 21st.
Under you can watch the new launch trailer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, however, it doesn’t really demonstrate any gameplay. Fortunately, the ongoing betas and pre-enrollment depiction clarified that the title should play similarly to Pokémon GO, however as opposed to collecting Pokémon, you’ll spend your time looking out Foundables (cursed items) that are infecting Muggle areas.
It’s as yet obscure when the game will reach the remainder of the globe, and if the US and UK release are taken care of also to how Pokémon GO was launched, at that point new regions should be added in short progression once the servers settle a bit. Up until this point, the official stance is that more regions will come “soon.”
So if live in the US or UK, you can hope to get your hands on Harry Potter: Wizards Unite this Friday. If you happen to live in a region that’s not partaking in the reported launch, make sure to hit the pre-registration button in the widget underneath to get a notice when the game is officially accessible in your part of the world.
The long-awaited release of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is currently set for a June 21 release date in the US and UK.
Given that this present reality AR gameplay has been created by Niantic (the company behind Pokémon Go) it pursues comparable augmented reality gameplay mechanics however presents the great world of Harry Potter rather than Gamefreak’s Pocket Monsters.
We saw the game get a constrained release beta back in May in Australia and New Zealand. This full release will begin with the US and the UK a more extensive country-by-country rollout coming — as affirmed by Niantic themselves over on Twitter.
It’s vague how rapidly it will spread but we expect it will be truly quick. Given Niantic postponed the title a few times already, waiting a little longer shouldn’t be too much of an issue for the devoted Potter fan.
Gameplay pursues that of Pokémon Go, you’ll see a wide range of Harry Potter foes from behind your smartphone camera on the planet before you. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite tasks you with gathering ‘foundable items’ which you’ll need to battle the various ghouls and beasts. Restoring health is done through Inns, with Greenhouses giving you access to elements for fermenting power-up potions.
The pre-registration page has just shown up on the Google Play Store, yet no download links are live on the App Store for iOS clients. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be accessible as a free download from June 21 yet we do expect in-app buys to allow for speedy level ups and in-game boosts.
