'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' is about protecting muggles

Now, we can get a new look at their upcoming game, Harry Potter: Wizard Unite, which looks to draw from the same system as its wildly popular predecessor.

Pre-registration is now open for Google Play, but not yet for iOS users.

You'll be led on a real world based AR adventure as you travel around the country side looking for port keys, enemies and all manner of Harry Potter goodness. The Calamity has caused artifacts, creatures, people, and even memories to appear in the Muggle world mysteriously. Cast a variety of spells to overcome the Confoundable magic, keep the magical Foundables safe, and send them back to the wizarding world.

Players will start the game as new recruits for the Statute of Secrecy Task Force.

I thought yesterday's vote by the House was disgraceful, because it's become, the Democrats have become an anti-Israel party. Trump had cited the watered down resolution House Dems concocted in response to Rep.

There'll also be combat in the form of Fortresses dotted around the map, where you'll be able to battle with other players against unsafe foes in a manner that sounds not dissimilar to Pokemon Go's gym battles, as well as professions that will allow you to specalise in the types of magic. Also like Pokemon GO, players are split into teams, or "Professions" in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite: Aurors, Magizoologists and Professors. To make sure you're at full strength, you will have to regularly stop at Inns (found on the game map) for food and drinks. All in all, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite sounds a lot like Pokemon GO: Wizard Edition, but just a bit richer and refined.

Those Foundables will function basically like Pokémon in Pokémon Go-players must hunt them down down in the game's augmented reality, but then, instead of catching them, players will destroy or neutralise them with spells. "Combat skills will be tested when witches and wizards visit real-world locations called Fortresses, key areas that play host to Wizarding Challenges". At these locations, you'll face off against the likes of Death Eaters (Voldemort's supporters) and happiness-sucking Dementors. In addition, there are Portmanteaus that, when unlocked, hand out Portkeys that "whisk you away to iconic wizarding world locations".

I guess we'll find out more when the game comes out.

The official site explains: "While exploring, you'll also come across ingredients that can be used to brew Potions, which will aid you in different aspects of your Wizarding World journey".
