Description

From the makers of Pokémon GO, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the real-world augmented reality (AR) game inspired by the Wizarding World that puts magic in the hands of players worldwide. Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is co-developed and co-published by Niantic, Inc. and WB Games San Francisco as part of Portkey Games, a label dedicated to creating new Wizarding World mobile and video games inspired by J.K. Rowling's original stories that place players at the center of their own adventure. Realize Your Wizarding Potential A calamity has befallen the wizarding world, causing Foundables—magical artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories—to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world. As a new recruit of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force, you’ll work with witches and wizards from across the globe to solve the mystery of The Calamity and keep magic safe from Muggle eyes. The Magic Is All Around You As you step outside and explore the world, the Map will reveal Traces of magic that indicate the location of Foundables. These Traces are found at various real-world locations and trigger richly detailed 3D encounters in full 360-degree advanced AR. You’ll need to cast a variety of spells to defeat the confounding magic surrounding the Foundables in order to safely return them to the wizarding world. Keep an eye out for other things that will aid you on your journey including Inns that replenish Spell Energy, ingredients that can be used to brew potions, and even Portkeys that can whisk you away to iconic wizarding world locations. Stronger United Gather your friends to take on even bigger magical feats such as Wizarding Challenges, real-time cooperative multiplayer battles against dangerous foes. To overcome the stronger threats and discover rarer Foundables, you’ll need to team up and strategize with your fellow witches and wizards and specialize in different magical Professions—Auror, Magizoologist, and Professor—that each have their own unique skills and abilities that come in handy at different times. Ready your wand, alert your friends, and be ready to protect the wizarding world from a global calamity. Your Wizarding adventure awaits! Stay tuned for the latest at WizardsUnite.com

  • It won’t let me make a code name

    By Loki is cute
    I love Harry Potter so when I found this app I was thrilled. My only problem is whenever I go to make a code name every one is taken I’ve done at least 50 (not exaggerating) and even typed in a bunch of random letters but it still says code name taken. I’m trying to get a code name that has to do with ArchAngel but every time I tried each one was taken

    The latest update crashes whenever I level up in the Registry. Looks like I don’t receive whatever loot comes with leveling up, either.

    All in all the game is entertaining. The only serious issue I have is with the Portkey system. For a while I couldn’t use the Portkeys I had because the setting feature for camera use would not show up, even when I would go from the app prompt straight to my settings page for HP Wizards Unite. Needless to say, I had accumulated a stockpile of portkeys until I found that *uninstalling and reinstalling the game fixes the camera + portkey issue.* I hope this information is useful to another player having the same issue.

    The game freezes when I go to look at the registry and I don’t end up getting my rewards because I have to exit the app. I’m missing out on a lot and honestly don’t want to keep playing if I’m not getting what I earn. Please reward me my item for the event as well please it glitches out every time I open it.
  • Best not to start at all

    At first this seems like a fun game, but when you advance to the late/end game you realize how much of a cash grab this game is. First you think, man I need green books but later you see Niantic puts a stranglehold on red books THEN has the audacity to start selling them in their bundle packages. That was the last straw for me. 0/10 would not recommend. This is coming from someone who has spent money on in app purchases and I have no qualms about doing so typically. I also have no issues with companies trying to earn their coin but this is blatant greed is even too much for me.

  • Repetitive and Glitch-Filled

    By Guard_Girl
    Every day, you open the app to do the same dailies just to grind up levels. The special events often involve similar tasks as the dailies that need to be completed in a certain time frame. The only reason to open this app daily is to get enough free coins to increase ingredient storage. The bugged event completion (click on event and the bar is supposed to fill up and rank up) freezes the game and restarting is required. This happened with 4 rank-ups in 30 minutes.
  • Outstanding!

    By cynnabuns
    I love this game and have been playing since the day it came out! They’re pretty quick to fix any bugs or issues. My only suggestion is I wish there was a message board or chat room of some sort in the chamber challenges, I only have like 8 friends on here, none of whom live near me and I don’t see anyway of knowing there is a player nearby. When the challenge chamber is lit up I know someone is playing but I can’t see their friend code or anything to know and play with them and it would be awesome to put your friend code on a message board so you can add players. Or even a some sort of notification like “there’s a player nearby, would you like to add them as a friend?” Also... it would be really awesome if you could trade ingredients with friends!
  • Needs an update!!

    By sarafinapickery
    Love this game, however, it consistently glitches when I’m going to rank up in one of the categories. The meter fills up and the screen freezes, requiring me to close the app and reopen. It then shows the meter correctly, but I’ve lost out on the rewards for ranking up. This is really frustrating! I’d say it happens about 75% of the time. Please fix this!!

    Love this game so much but the constant glitch/bugs etc. is so frustrating especially when I spend real money playing this game! Lots of place for improvements when it comes to glitches/bugs.
  • Game won’t load

    I was extremely excited to begin playing this game, but unfortunately it will not load past the loading screen on my iPhone 11. I don’t know if it’s just my iPhone 11 or everyone else’s, but I hope this gets fixed quick.
  • Fun game!

  • A huge cash grab

    1
    By critic9475
    This game is really greedy about itself. It wants you to pay for almost anything you do. If you want to play, you spend magic points. When you run out of them, you have to wait 4 minutes for 1! I mean, sure you spend money in other games. But that’s just to wait. Dungeon keeper pulled this on us to. But I mean, come on! Couldn’t you let players play without making them play like 2 minutes a day?! This is just a huge cash grab that should’ve been made by EA. But no, the makers of Pokémon go did this. If you want an actual Harry Potter game, check out the other game they made, and not this one.
  • It was fun at first

    By Wittycat
    I really enjoyed this game at first. Now I am frustrated and feel like it is a waste of my time. I RARELY can find new items to return, I’ve caught everything I can, several times over, and I hate that I don’t even get the opportunity to return items in my registry, because they never appear! I’d also love it if they put an inn by the pond in my neighborhood, as I walk daily but there are no inns anywhere near me.
  • Poor experience since last update

    2
    By Royalshortstack8
    I have enjoyed playing this game for several months until the last few updates. The game has become extremely glitchy. It crashes often in the middle of traces or challenges and rewards are lost. Almost every day it doesn’t apply things correctly to daily or event challenges resulting in wasted potions and energy. Hopefully things are fixed soon because I enjoyed the game play experience until now.
  • For goodness sake, fix the bugs!

    Largely enjoyable game, great animations, like it better than its cousin Pokémon Go, but I can’t believe all the bugs on a game that has been out this long. I must have to force quit this thing 10-15 times a day just to get it to work correctly. I level up on one of the categories and it freezes after the thermometer-style indicator hits the threshold. Never get to see what I’ve won. Go to one of the inns and it just sits there without showing me the arc of the spell I’m supposed to cast. Kicks me out of a wizard challenge halfway through in mid battle, then won’t let me back in because it says someone else is playing. The list goes on. The developers must’ve made bank on this game, how about the take a page out of Apple’s book and devote the next few releases to reliability and speed?

    Since the last upgrade it freezes constantly • the registry won’t update and if it “ does “ it just takes the credit off the registry but you get no credit • Portkeys lets you select wackspurts and then doesn’t give you credit and the Portkey is gone ( one of the big 10’s wasted ) Fix the app • it’s frustration every upgrade causes more problems not less.
  • Buggy

    By ToriNicole92
    It’s ok. There was an update and now the game is pretty buggy. I’ve opened 3 port keys and didn’t get anything from them. If you tap the screen to speed up after beating the fragment, it won’t give you anything like it’s supposed to. When opening the registry, if you’ve filled up the bar for a chest it doesn’t always open the chest. You have to close the game and then reopen it, and even then the game thinks you’ve opened the chest and if won’t give you the appropriate rune stone. Even then if you get the rune stone from events they don’t always work in the Wizarding challenges, so you can’t fill the event registry. The game used to be a lot more fun, but now it’s just incredibly annoying. Hopefully the bugs get fixed so I can enjoy the game properly again.

    By HurricaneSummer
    I really love playing this app. I swap between this and Pokémon Go. One thing that’s been upsetting me are the bugs that make confoundables that I am fighting, disappear randomly. Another thing that has been happening lately is when I fill a bar with points in a certain section of the registry, instead of opening the trunk, the app freezes and I have to close out and re-open. Luckily I still get the prize within but it’s just annoying to do. One thing that I can ask and hope for is possibly more events? I need ways to earn the red and green books because so far I can only unlock profession points that require scrolls and those with small amounts of red or green books. Never mind those with up to 11 of one or the other.... I look forward to your improvements and I can’t wait for what’s to come.
  • Good, except . . .

    By bronsonian
    The game has been a lot of fun until the last couple updates. I keep getting to the last one or two opponents in wizarding challenges and a bug corrupts the game and causes a restart. So all the potions I’ve been brewing and saving up get eaten up with now reward. SO frustrating.
  • Love the game! Too many bugs!!!

    By JimmyT73
    I keep having to force close the app and restart it. Black screens. Locked up game. Or even not getting rewards from winning challenges. I’m on my 3rd re-install of the game. Hoping 3rd time is a charm!

    I’ve been playing this game for 3 months now, and I’m wondering if I should just delete. I love Harry Potter, and I was really into this game at first. The spell casting, the potion making, the discovery of inns and ingredients and the impetus for movement that portkeys inspire. But now? Tedious. I haven’t heard anything about the overarching storyline (the Grim Farley mystery) in ages, I keep encountering the same confoundables, and the game is so buggy that it constantly crashes. The latest issue? It won’t show me my points or prizes after I’ve recovered a foundable or ranked up in challenges. And, it doesn’t accurately record my progress with goals. I send reports all the time regarding the different issues as they come up, but it doesn’t make the game less buggy or more enjoyable. And downloading all those assets on a near constant basis takes up all this space on my phone, and for what? A less than fun gaming experience? No thanks, I think I WILL delete this app...
  • Great BUT

    By Melyneedscoffee
    The game is great. However, compared to Pokémon go, the game is full of bugs, crashes constantly, GPS is faulty, and the gameplay is growing stale. I am finding myself logging on less and less.

    Game is straight up boring the music alone is a lullaby putting me to sleep sigh.not much of a fan of the movies,however niantic made the game so figured I’d give it a go.yawn!might be fun for lil kids I suppose,beyond that,doesn’t capture my imagination,my excitement is null.3 stars for trying,will update after I get some more time in game.

  • Keeps locking up

    By Loki4242
    I want to write a good review. But there is an event going on. Every time I advance the brilliant event registry it locks up. When it locks up I lose the rewards and get no runes. Because of that I can’t complete tasks. Restarting does not fix anything. Things are very buggy since the latest update.

    I can’t even log in. My gmail account wouldn’t work, and I think it is dumb that you have to have a gmail account or a Facebook account to even play. Why can’t you create an account with any email? Big thumbs down. 👎
  • Fantastic!... until you run out of energy

    3
    By lemeneclair
    When I first started playing this game I absolutely fell in love with it. The layers of gameplay you get with different kinds of foundables, ingredients to pick up, a dedicated leveling and class system, and so much more make it an absolute joy to play. That is they did, until all the bonus energy you start out with is lost. Then suddenly the game I was playing almost any opportunity I could get became something I was almost afraid to touch. “Is it really worth it to play it right now? I’m just gonna waste my energy” has pretty much become the only thing that comes to mind when I go to play it now. The issue is once you run out of energy there’s no way to get it back other than Inns and maybe a quest if you’re lucky. So essentially if you’re in a rural area and don’t have constant access to Inns you might as well not play. There needs to be a way to regenerate energy. I don’t care if it’s a long wait, or based on miles walked, or something else entirely, but we need some way to generate energy in the background.
  • Port key walking progress not counting

    By Gilmour5
    My port keys will never open because the port key shows 0 distance walked. I played this game when it first came out. I got frustrated about the port keys. I quit playing came back now few months later I still have the same problem. I love this game. This is making me so mad. Please fix this already. Many users are having the same problems. Thanks
  • Need adventure sync

    Only thing this game is missing is adventure sync which would allow your daily steps to go towards rewards.

    This is not ok and I will not be using any app that requires those. Sign In with Apple or email. Not companies that steal and harvest my information.
  • Crashes Constantly

    1
    By ChadHarwood
    I’ve lost countless valuable portkeys and runestones because the game decide to crash in the middle of important events like battles. I have a Xs Max, so it isn’t my phone’s fault. GPS tracking is practically useless. It constantly shifts me hundreds of yards from where I really am. They clearly decided to concentrate on monetization over correct code.
  • Love it but for the glitches!

    By Kerpeve
    I love this game. This is the first time I’ve ever written a review. I may play this game too much. It is frustrating though because my port key kilometer don’t always get logged and it freezes almost every time I go in not the registry. Hope it gets fixed!
  • Events

    By Lore9018
    I’m tired of the game stealing energy from me during events. Today I “lost” twenty of energy because every time I fight, apparently the game thinks I used all my energy. Plus, I passed from level 1 to level 2 and I never got the rewards. The game is fine, but this bugs make it annoying. And energy shoul recharge with time. I live far away from taberns.

  • Great game, but could include some other options

    By Cheetahs26
    I love this game, it is so much fun. I play it every day. But there are some things that would be really nice, like if there was an option to trade potions, ingredients and runes among friends in the game. Like once a day you could have a trade option. Or if your energy refilled slowly overtime without having to get inns. But overall, it’s really fun and great for all ages!
