Following the success of Pokémon GO, Niantic gives us a first look at Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. The augmented reality game, designed to rival Pokémon GO, was initially teased back in 2017.

While some confusion still surrounds the game, Niantic and WB Games San Francisco note that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite allows you to embark on your own wizarding world adventure with real-life friends, bringing together content and characters from the original Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Beasts films.

"It’s up to you to ready your wand, prepare your potions, brush up your spells and help prevent The Calamity from exposing the secrets of the wizarding world," Niantic says.

In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, you can recover artifacts, creatures, people and memories that have fallen from the wizarding world to the Muggle world, and return them to their rightful place. Upon stepping outside, you will be forced to use the map revealing the location of these magical "Foundables." Niantic points out that certain Foundables are more likely to appear at real-world areas including parks, banks, municipal buildings, college campuses, libraries, monuments, zoos, art galleries and more. By locating and returning the Foundables, you will earn unique rewards tracked in the game Registry.

You can also cast spells while playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, but be mindful that this consumes Spell Energy. You can, however, replenish your Spell Energy by collecting food and drinks from Inns around the world. To brew various potions, you'll need to gather ingredients while on your journey. These ingredients will also be pictured on the aforementioned map.

Lastly, Fortresses allow you to test your combat skills by engaging in real-time multiplayer battles. You can assemble your friends to enhance your odds of victory.

Niantic will be revealing more about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in the days to come. To stay updated, sign up at WizardsUnite.com and follow the game on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. You can go ahead and pre-register on Google Play as well.
