These villains will come to Wizards Unite as part of the game's new monthly patches. Players can earn rewards like Wizarding and Challenge XP, among other bonuses, for defeating the villains.

The Adversaries update also adds a new Adversaries Registry, which is a compendium of more than 75 collectibles that players can collect. There are more combat lessons also available in this registry.

Head to the Wizards Unite website to see a full and detailed breakdown of the Adversaries update.

Another Harry Potter game, Hogwarts Legacy, is in development for release on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2021. As controversy swirls around author J.K. Rowling, Warner Bros. has confirmed that she is not directly involved with the game's development.
