What Is Harry Potter: Wizards Unite?

Unlike Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, another Harry Potter themed mobile game that sends you to Hogwarts, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an AR (augmented reality) in which you will roam the real world.

Much like Pokemon Go, you will find creatures and experience upgrades as you walk around your own town.

It can be expected that playing with other Wizards Unite users will be a key factor in the gameplay.

When Is Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Release Date?

The new mobile game was announced in October 2017, but we still have yet to have an exact date for Wizards Unite becoming available for download.

That said, we do have a pretty solid guess.

You can probably expect the game to hit Google Play Store and the iTunes App Store sometime this summer — perhaps in June or July.

Why? Pokemon Go was launched in the summer — and since it is warmer and has longer days than the cold winter months, users were more likely to go out to explore, and to stay out to play longer.

Wizards Unite Gameplay

Players will explore the world around them, and like trying to find Pokemon in Pokemon GO, they're in search of "mysterious artifacts."

On top of that, players can cast spells in the game. While we aren't sure how, we do suspect will be a way to flick your phone around like you would a wand.
