Wizards Unite, Harry Potter Fans Now Have an Interactive Game
Harry Potter fans, your answer to Pokemon Go has arrived in Wizards Unite.
The game launched on Friday, and is available now for your to download and play. The game is set in the wizarding world after the demise of Lord Voldemort. Your objective is to help the Ministry of Magic maintain the 'Statute of Secrecy.'
You're being recruited to help with the 'Calamity.' I asked the same question... what is that?
“Everything that anyone has ever feared, revered, or held dear in the wizarding world — people, things, even memories — have been stolen and displaced, tossed about across the world,” Constance Pickering, a colleague of Hermoine Granger on the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, explains in the game. “We’ve got to return what is lost, and quickly. The Statute of Secrecy is in danger of being broken.
You're looking for displaced bits of magic in the real world. Your wizard avatar comes across them as you are moving about in our world. Entertainment Weekly claims that Niantic, which developed the game, will have new updates and reveals over time.
