Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Released a Day Early


The AR mobile game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has been released early for some people. The game is set to be released tomorrow, June 21, though we were able to download it today.

You can check out the latest info from below as well as a trailer. We’d love to hear if you were able to download the game early as well.

Rogue Nifflers, Death Eaters set loose near ice cream vans, and Dementors descending from the skies: these are just a few of the strange magical occurrences cropping up in the new trailer for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Take a look at this new trailer that was released at Universal Studios Hollywood yesterday.

Yes, the new Augmented Reality game (a collaboration between WB Games and Niantic under the Portkey Games label) will invite players to assume wizarding identities and help the Ministry of Magic contain a mysterious ‘Calamity’; a phenomenon that sees iconic beasts, magical artefacts and wizarding world characters appearing in the Muggle world. This will involve casting spells, brewing potions, using Portkeys and so much more.

The trailer shows three teens trying to control the ensuing chaos, using their phones to contain some of it. We also see them travel via Portkeys (an old, scruffy boot, naturally) and even rescue someone who looks very much like Harry Potter himself. But what would ‘Harry’ be doing in our world, in our time?

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is set to be released tomorrow, but if you have it now, let us know!
