Harry Potter Wizards Unite is Niantic Labs’ follow-up to the hugely successful Pokémon GO. Much like Pokémon GO itself, Harry Potter Wizards Unite requires players to walk around their real-world surroundings. Now, over this weekend, the game is going to celebrate a special event.
Harry Potter Wizards Unite Will Have A Quidditch Themed Event
This event is based around the fictional sport of Quidditch. While it would be cool to play Quidditch using the game’s augmented reality capabilities, that’s not where they’re going with this. Instead, players now have the ability to catch Quidditch-related Foundables around the map.
These Foundables include Chudley Cannons Players, the Quidditch World Cup, and other such relevant items. This announcement comes via a Twitter post from the game’s official account. We also have some more details about this event from the game’s website.
Harry Potter Wizards Unite Is Playable From Home For Now
The event starts on May 29, 2020, from 11 am PT and it will run until June 1, 2020, till 11 am PT. That’s a small window of opportunity, but what else do people have to do nowadays? This post does note that Niantic has tweaked Harry Potter Wizards Unite a bit.
They did so in an effort to ensure that players can play the game without leaving their house. Many places around the world are still under lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, these changes should make things easier for them.
