As previously reported, the Harry Potter app is co-developed by Warner Bros. Interactive and its new sub-brand Portkey Games. Like “Pokemon Go,” players “roam the real world collecting power-ups, defending locations and exploring their environment.”
The story will focus on the Statute of Secrecy Task Force. Your job is 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. These will transport them to a completely virtual one. The virtual world will include infamous locations from the Harry Potter universe.
