Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is Niantic's new game

Peter, 09 November 2017

Niantic, maker of the hugely successful Pokemon Go, is ready to take you on the next adventure – a venture into the magical world of Harry Potter. The new game, titled Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, will be similar to Niantic’s first two games in that it will overlay a whole new reality on top of your familiar neighborhoods.

This time around you will be doing the fighting, not critters you’ve captured. This will involve a new game mechanic – learning spells – discovering mysterious artifacts and there’s even a hint of WoW-style raiding parties to take down the tougher bosses. The game takes inspiration from The Wizarding World theme park
