Do you remember the Pokémon GO fever that hit the masses a few years back? Well, it seems as if things are about to get even crazier.
We all know that Harry Potter fans are dedicated, to say the least, so when you add an augmented reality game into the mix – you get an experience to remember.
The news about the upcoming Harry Potter: Wizards Unite game have been circling the net for a couple of years now, but the dream became a reality when gamers got a preview of what the game has in store for them.
Players that enjoy all types of games, from classic PC games to Grand Vegas online pokies, are bound to fall in love with the upcoming Harry Potter game. The only question is whether you are planning on joining the excitement or not! Are you ready to learn more about the game?
What We Know About the Game
Anyone who has ever played or seen others play Pokémon GO, know how the new Harry Potter game is going to work. The game was created by two companies – Niantic and WB Games – under the well-known name of Portkey Games.
The plot of the game is pretty entertaining, especially if you are a big Harry Potter fan. In this game, something unexplained is happening in the wizarding world. Magical artifacts, creatures, and even wizards appear in the muggle world without warning.
It will be your job, as a new member of the Statue of Secrecy Task Force, to investigate the cause of the calamity and return order to the world.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has a lot of familiar elements you will recognize from other AR games, such as the map you will need to navigate to follow traces of the magical world.
However, the games’ creator added new features that make the game stand out from other AR games we all learned to love.
First of all, Wizards Unite will allow you to take a more active part in the gaming experience. For example, upon locating a magical creature or a wizard, you will be required to perform certain spells to regain control of the situation.
Also, during the game, you will be able to brew potions from ingredients that appear in your region at certain times and under specific weather conditions. From time to time, you will also be required to replenish your energy by visiting inns where you can get food, which also adds a realistic vibe to the game.
Now, what about you? What will your gaming experience look like?
First and foremost, before you start playing, you will be able to create your wizard avatar. You will be able to join the house you admire most, pick out your wand, and choose a profession that will provide you with unique skills you will be able to use later on.
You can be an Auror, Professor, or Magizoologist, and as the game will unfold in front of you, your avatar’s abilities will develop and provide you with more tools to deal with the calamity.
Fortunately enough, the game will allow you to switch professions or houses whenever you want to, so you won’t have to agonize over making the wrong game choices.
Unfortunately, we still don’t know exactly when the game will come out, but it is supposed to hit the market in the upcoming months.
On March 11, we got a preview of what the game will look like, and Android owners now have a chance of pre-registering for Wizards Unite on Google Play, while iPhone owners are still unable to do that.
The muggle world is in an uproar since the moment the Wizards Unite game was announced, and with every new detail the creators reveal, the excitement rises up a notch. Are you planning on playing the game the moment it becomes available to you?
