A news that will thrill fans of Harry Potter.
For some time now there has been an agreement between Samsung and Niantic to develop a game based on the most famous magician in the world.
As a result of the upcoming launch, the first trailers of Harry Potter: Wizard Unite, this is the name of the augmented reality game for mobile devices, created in collaboration with Warner Bros.
The game will allow players to explore real-world locations modified with AR; a bit like in Pokémon Go.
You’ll have to cast spells, follow magical tracks, and come across special encounters, all while taking care not to be discovered by muggles.
How it Works
Once you have downloaded and launched the application, you must interface with the GPS and the camera.
You proceed with the creation of the profile and become familiar with the game with an initial tutorial with Hagrid that must be framed and released from captivity with a spell, in fact, on the screen will appear the corresponding symbol.
Once the operation has been carried out, we can view the character in our personal collection and use it later.
The story is set after the saga so the characters are adults.
Some creatures and objects of the magical world are found in the world of the suckers (which we remember to be human beings without powers). As we know suckers are not used to seeing creatures of the magical world and so the player’s task will be to retrieve them all to keep the barrier that separates the two kingdoms intact.
This situation is the reason why the player will have to move from one place to another. Justify, following the tracks of the objectives that as they go to enrich the map of the game.
All this we remember in augmented reality.
The game is currently available in beta testing only in New Zealand and Autstralia. The “Potterians”, however, can already register on the website Wizards Unite (https://www.harrypotterwizardsunite.com/) to receive updates, and for those using Android devices, can pre-register on Google Play to not miss any official announcement on the release date of the game.
