Wizards Unite is a location-based augmented reality (AR) mobile game set in the world of J.K. Rowlings's Harry Potter. The game allows aspiring wizards and witches to embark on adventures where they explore real-world neighborhoods and cities across the globe, learn and cast spells, discover mysterious artifacts, and encounter legendary beasts and iconic characters. Players start as a new recruit for the Ministry of Magic's Statute of Secrecy Task Force to investigate 'The Calamity', a mysterious force causing magical things to appear before Muggles (non-magical people). The objective of the game is to use spells and potions to return the magical items, known as 'foundables', to stop the Wizarding World from being exposed. Check out our Wizards Unite walkthrough and guide to find out how you can become a better wizard or witch in this game which is from the creators of Pokemon Go.
