Harry Potter: Wizards Unite gameplay revealed - What we know now

Niantic Reveals Muggle-Approved AR Game, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite 'Harry Potter: Wizards Unite' is about protecting muggles

We've waited with bated breath for Niantic's next big AR game since the release of Pokémon GO, and finally, we've seen new information which suggests Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will be out sooner rather than later.

There's still no final date for the release of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, but pre-registration is now open on Google Play for those with Android phones, while iPhone users have been told to stay tuned for more updates.

"Your journey begins as a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, established by the Ministry of Magic and the International Confederation of Wizards for the objective of investigating and containing The Calamity", the details read.

Players who "step outside and explore the world" will see "Traces of magic highlighting the location of magical Foundables".

Foundables will appear at various types of real-world locations including parks, banks, municipal buildings, college campuses, libraries, monuments, zoos, art galleries, and more.

The game, made in partnership between Pokémon Go andIngress makers Niantic and WB Games, uses the same Global Positioning System and AR abilities you'll find in Go.

There's also the chance that Niantic will invite you to the early access program for Wizards Unite, although this isn't guaranteed.

There is also the opportunity to team up with fellow wizards (ie, your friends) to play multiplayer battles against villains such as Death Eaters and Dementors - which are like the gyms in Pokemon Go. Co-developed by WB Games under the Portkey Games label, Wizards Unite takes Pokemon Go's foundation and puts a wizarding world spin on it.

Go to the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite website. In addition, there are Portmanteaus that, when unlocked, hand out Portkeys that "whisk you away to iconic wizarding world locations".

Gameplay will involve heading to Inns that can replenish a player's Spell Energy, and where they can use magical ingredients for brewing special potions.

Back in November, we were given our first official trailer, giving us some kind of idea as to the game's storyline.

It draws heavily on the Harry Potter universe, packed full of familiar characters and elements from the books and films, for an immersive experience that fans will love.

The "plot" of Wizards Unite will rely heavily on the International Statute of Secrecy, a wizarding law that keeps non-magical people from discovering the truth about the witches and wizards living among them.
