The latest game from Pokemon Go developer Niantic is a fresh AR-focused free-to-play experience called Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The new Harry Potter game is a mobile game that will be headed to the Google Play and Apple Store soon. While the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite release date hasn’t been announced officially, we can assume it is coming soon since a beta session has been announced in Australia and New Zealand. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was originally scheduled to release in 2018 but was delayed until 2019 so that it could be developed further.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Release Date | When is the Harry Potter mobile game out in the US and UK?
It is still unclear when Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be making its way to the US and UK. However, it seems there won’t be too much longer of a wait. With the beta test underway in New Zealand and Australia, Niantic is likely testing the mobile game in a smaller market before releasing it to a bigger audience. If all goes well, then the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite release date likely won’t be too far away for those in the US and UK.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite | What is it about?
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an augmented reality mobile game where players are able to visit real-world locations. Would-be wizards will then be able to cast spells, encounter other characters and beasts, and make all kinds of discoveries along the way. The gameplay is similar to that of Pokemon Go in which the real world is mixed with augmented reality.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be a free-to-play game that is supported by in-game microtransactions. Players will be able to spend real-life money on Gold, which can be used to purchase different spells and used to save time in the game. Since it is a free mobile game, microtransactions are expected. This is all we know right now, but hopefully we’ll learn even more details as Harry Potter: Wizards Unite creeps ever closer to its eventual release date.
