About Harry Potter: Wizards Unite
Portkey Games, from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, is the games label dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and videogame experiences that place the player at the center of their own adventure, inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. Portkey Games offers players the opportunity to make their own narrative choices and engage with the Wizarding World setting to create new and unique experiences. The label was created to bring gamers and fans new gaming experiences that allow them to delve into the magic of the Wizarding World in immersive ways where they can define their own Wizarding World story.
Wizards Unite is similar to Niantic’s other blockbuster, Pokemon Go. As players walk through the real world, they can use their phones to track magical items that are scattered around. This is accomplished through the use of augmented reality.
