Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has exited its beta phase and is now available to download on Android and iOS devices in select regions. That means the game has unlocked a day ahead of schedule.
Earlier this week developer Niantic announced that Harry Potter: Wizards Unite would be released on Friday, June 21, but it appears that the game is already available for many users. IGN staff in both the UK and US have been able to download and play the game on iOS and Android, so it’s worth checking your app store to see if it’s available for you.
For those jumping into the game now that it’s available in more regions, you may be lost with all the AR wizarding world has to offer. Be sure to check out our Harry Potter: Wizards Unite guide for everything you need to know as you start, including Harry Potter: Wizards Unite spells, find out more about Harry Potter: Wizards Unite’s Professions and take a look at everything we know about in the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Registry of collectibles.
If you’ve yet to investigate what Niantic’s latest is all about, check out our Harry Potter: Wizards Unite preview, where we take a look at this new trip to the Wizarding World. While the game doesn’t allow you to hang out with Harry, Ron, and Hermione, it does appear add a little magic to every day life.
In other Harry Potter news, last month Pottermore and Warner Bros. announced a joint collaboration for the new site, WizardingWorld.com, which now acts as the new home for Harry Potter and Fantastic Beats content. There’s no news relating to the leaked Harry Potter RPG, though, and we can’t help but wonder where that is.
