Harry Potter is the new Pokemon Go.
Back in 2016, the mobile game Pokemon Go was released and became a mega-hit. But now Harry Potter is taking over with Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
The Harry Potter version will be similar to Pokemon Go, but with a new look and new ways to keep players busy while on the go.
The point of the game is there’s a map that corresponds to the real-world, and you travel around in the physical space while looking at digital items to pick up.
The game sounds pretty easy, but it’s a lot more difficult than you think. In Pokemon Go, players go around to find new creatures and capture them. With Wizards Unite, players will be challenged to explore the history and storylines based on J.K Rowling’s book series. The game places a bigger emphasis on the story, with characters and potion-brewing.
Wizards Unite, will have a few advanced activities for players, such as leveling up your character, picking a subclass (called a “profession”) to learn new abilities, and teaming up with five other players to compete in a fortress.
The game is expected to be out later this year, but the exact release date is still unknown. There is a pre-registration opened for Android users on Google Play, which may give game users early access. The pre-registration is not available on the App Store.
