Magic and Mystery
As with other popular Harry Potter games, such as Hogwarts Mystery
, the game revolves around a mystery
that puts the wizarding world in a turmoil. In Harry Potter: Wizards, the Ministry of Magic calls for wizards
—the players—to join the Statue of Secrecy Task Force
to solve the mysteries of the Calamity. This Calamity caused beast, people, and magic artifacts, introduced in the Harry Potter franchise, to be scattered across the world. The role of the player is to locate
these magical items and dispel confounding magic surrounding them before the muggle see.
Each time you have obtained an item or a creature, you will get a sticker to pop in the registry. These stickers are categorized in specific collections that vary depending on their own experiences. Once you have completed a selection, you will be awarded a trunk full of items that can help you in your adventures.
Finding Magic Everywhere
What fans would love about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is that it lets you explore the wizarding world
in your vicinity. While you wander around the real world, you will be able to find various wizarding locations on your map, including greenhouses, fortresses, inns, and magical traces. These locations can trigger magical encounters
with beasts and wizards prompting you to cast magic spells. Magical traces, for example, triggers richly detailed 3D
encounters in full 360-degree AR
. Players would need to cast various spells, by tracing a glyph on the screen, to defeat confounding magic.
Additionally, players can also dip their hands in potion making by collecting ingredients from greenhouses. These potions are essential to improving their gameplay. You can even explore iconic wizarding world locations using the portkey. By activating a portkey portmanteau, you can reveal an immersive VR-like experience and transport yourself to another location.
Furthermore, this game also offers synchronous multiplayer challenges in fortresses. This part of the map presents a complete RPG experience which features combat encounters and arena effects and lets you fight nasty foes like Death Eaters and Dementors. Some battles in the fortress maps relive popular events in the story.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite also allows you to specialize in different professions, including Auror, Magizoologist, and even a professor. Players with different professions can even team up to win wizarding challengers and unlock rare items.
