Much like Pokemon Go did to begin with (and still does), Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has gotten off to a great start with wizards and muggles alike. It’s only been a week and already a Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fan festival has been announced by Warner Brothers games and Niantic.
Where and when is the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fan festival?
As confirmed on the official website the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fan festival is set to arrive on August 31st and will be around until September 1st inclusive. Details have been a little sparse so far, but we do know that the event will be held in the White River State Park in Indianapolis but not much else has been revealed. A press release has literally only detailed that fans “will be able to engage in a variety of interactive experiences bridging the in-game experience with the real world”, so there will almost certainly be some magical happenings during the event, but the organisers are keeping this well under wraps.
Players will be able to “discover mysterious artefacts, cast spells, and encounter fantastic beasts alongside their friends and other players,” says Warner Bros and Niantic, not too dissimilar to what the gameplay currently offers. For those who’ve yet to give the game a try, the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fan festival could see a brand new feature such as a spell to get those on the sidelines into the game. Perhaps a limited-edition potion ingredient will be given to players that attend the event that no one else can get it, possibly?
With the game still being brand new, there’s certainly a few avenues that Warner Bros and Niantic could introduce at the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fan festival, although time will tell. If you’re able to get to the fan festival as opposed to pondering what could be, then make sure to keep your eyes on the official fan festival page. I think I heard whispers a train can get you there from platform nine and three quarters – whatever that is…
Did you know that the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite houses are simply cosmetic? What’s that all about?
