Co-developed by Niantic and WB Games, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite invites players to view the real world through a Wizarding World lens, via your smartphone. So without further ado, let’s actually check out the new teaser trailer.
It’s up to you to protect the wizarding world. Enlist immediately for the Statute of Secrecy Task Force: https://t.co/b9UtoUA3gS #WizardsUnite pic.twitter.com/2NSlOpgj3W— Harry Potter: Wizards Unite (@HPWizardsUnite) November 14, 2018
In the words of Mr Ollivander, ‘curious’...
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be all about working together, and players will have to explore their real-world surroundings to solve a global mystery, all the while encountering artefacts, magical creatures, and familiar characters from the Wizarding World that we think you’ll know quite well.
In the new teaser trailer, we can see the camera glitching (well, you know magic can interfere with Muggle technology) as a woman immobilises a Golden Snitch that has appeared. At the end, a poster warns that the ‘Wizarding World is at risk of exposure’ and implores us for our help. Well. Who are we to turn down a new magical adventure?
Earlier this week, we also revealed the intriguing new Harry Potter: Wizards Unite logo, which shows Harry, Ron and Hermione’s wands joining together, along with stylistic elements from Fantastic Beasts. So, we’re sensing a theme of working together here, a sense of solidarity. Well, this is what being a wizard or witch is all about, right?
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will launch in 2019. For more details, check out the Wizards Unite website.
