While a release date for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has not yet materialized, co-workers Niantic and WB Games have finally released playback plays and a deep game description to accommodate Harry Potter fans.
In addition to revealing game play, Harry Potter fans can now pre-register for the game on Google Play, while iPhone users can continue to register on the game's homepage for updates.
As expected, the game plays reflects near the site-based gaming ethic that Niantic paved with Pokémon GO and Ingress, while loan elements from imitators such as Ghostbusters World, The Walking Dead: Our World and Jurassic World Alive.
The game revolves around The Calamity, a leak of magic characters and objects, called the Foundables, from the wizarding world to our real world. Aspiring wizards and witches must chase these Foundables, usually hiding in public spaces such as parks, museums, and libraries, and sticks to contain them and render them to their realm.
Like Pokémon GO- players must have pokeballs to catch pocket monsters, wizards, and witches will need to collect rod power supplemented by inns locked to Muggle sites in the real world.
Players can also brew potions by collecting ingredients from the greenhouse. In addition, players can unlock portals in the wizard.
The game will also challenge players with magic duels, which players can collect on fortresses and cook up to fight death thieves and dementors in multiplayer battles (such as the Pokémon GO raid). Players will have the opportunity to specialize in different classes or professions, so magic battle will feel the role of role playing.
The wait for the site-based game inspired by the uber-popular franchise has been almost as long as the 19 months between the second and last seasons of Thronespel . Niantic and Warner Bros. originally announced the game in November 2017 and later estimated that it would arrive in the second half of 2018.
One year after the announcement of the game, Niantic released a trailer for the game instead of running the game launch until 2019. Nevertheless, the company has continued to tease the game with trailer releases.
While this first sees additional strings along the fans chomping on the bit to dig their teeth into a virtual version of Harry Potter's magical world, at least the revelation of game patterns indicates that a launch is coming soon. Then, another place-based AR game, Ghostbusters World, adds seven months between its first game play release and the game's release, so don't keep your spirit yet.
