‘Harry Potter’ mobile game unveils first look at gameplay
Harry Potter fans have been clutching tightly to their phones ever since the announcement of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite—a follow-up to Niantic's Pokemon GO mobile game. Now, developers have released the highly-anticipated first look a this magical gameplay, giving us an idea of just what we can expect from this augmented-reality game!
The game, which will come to life like Pokemon Go, will bring the wizarding world to our muggle world.
As previously reported, the app is co-developed by Warner Bros. Interactive and its new sub-brand Portkey Games, and like “Pokemon Go,” players should be able to “roam the real world collecting power-ups, defending locations and exploring their environment.”
Back in November, we were given our first official trailer, giving us some kind of idea as to the game's storyline.
While we still don't have an official release date, we do have some kind of idea what to expect when it comes to gameplay.
The story will focus on the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, with your job being to hunt out and capture rogue creatures, people and objects that have escaped from the wizarding world.
It will use the same GPS and AR abilities as Pokemon GO, but players will also be able to access Portkeys in the AR world that will transport them to a completely virtual one. The virtual world will include infamous locations from the Harry Potter universe.
Check out your first official gameplay look, below!
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is slated to launch later this year. You can find out more and keep an eye out for that official release date via their official site, here.
