Remember Pokemon GO? When the game came live, it became very popular in a short time, because of its unique features. Now the game company “Niantic” has co – developed & launched its new game namely “Harry Potter – Wizards Unite” with “AT&T Inc’s Warner Bros“, which owns the rights to develop entertainment based on author JK Rowling’s popular Harry Potter series.
Take a look at the game trailer here…
The game uses AR(Augmented Reality) and Google maps to make it look like characters are appearing in the real world. Players see characters, creatures and other elements overlaid on the landscape that they see through their phone’s camera as they move around.
The developers said, “In Wizards Unite, users play the role of a new recruit within the Statute of Secrecy Task Force to help solve a mystery. Players can discover artifacts, cast spells and encounter characters from the Potter films and prequel movie series “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,”
“You see all your favorite characters and artifacts, whether it’s the Sorting Hat, or Buckbeak, or whether it’s Harry himself or Newt Scamander,” said Jonathan Knight, studio head of Warner Bros. Games San Francisco.
Now lets look at the game features, here is what the game is packed with!
Players will be able to establish themselves as an official member of the wizarding world and the Statute of Secrecy Task Force by personalizing their selfie with Wizarding World-inspired lenses, frames, deformations, accessories, stickers, and many more customizable features.
Upon discovering and activating a Portkey Portmanteau, players will be able to reveal an immersive VR-like experience and transport themselves to explore iconic Wizarding World locations.
