Originally announced almost 18 months ago, we’re finally getting our first look at Niantic’s upcoming AR game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
The developer’s follow-up to its hugely popular Pokémon Go, the game is looking to be worth the wait.
Instead of trying to re-invent the gameplay, Niantic has seemingly improved the experience and added tons of fun touches for fans of the Harry Potter series.
Players will start as a new recruit for the Statute of Secrecy Task Force who will need to investigate and contain a calamity that has hit the wizarding world. Witches and wizards will need to return special Foundables to their proper place and away from the prying eyes of muggles.
While exploring the world, there will be a number of different location to find including Inns and Portkeys. The portrays will unlock an AR look into iconic locations.
There will also be real-time multiplayer battles against foes. And since this is a Harry Potter game, some of the gameplay footage suggests gamers will be seeing some familiar faces while playing.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will land on the App Store sometime in 2019. You can find out more about the game on its official site.
