New Harry Potter Game Wizards Unite Releases Soon [Update]
Coming June 21.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, the Pokemon Go-style AR game from Niantic set in the fantastical world of Harry Potter, is launching very soon. It was confirmed this week during a presentation in Los Angeles that the game will launch this Friday, June 21. It will be available as a free download on supported mobile phones. [Update: The wait is over, and it wasn't quite as long as expected. Wizards Unite is now available in the US and UK a day earlier than expected. You can download it on iOS or Android devices right now for free, or check out our hands-on impressions of some time spent with the new mobile game, or check out everything you need to know about Wizards Unite.]
