Location-based augmented reality games are taking the world by a storm. The likes of Pokemon Go and Ingress have really been successful, and the thirst for similar games is ever high. With the recent release of Harry Potter: Wizards Unite, players all over the world are eager to explore multiple locations in the game. However, the challenge of being unable to freely move to various geographical locations, discovering fundable, has presented the same set of setbacks that Pokemon Go player faced. That is the need to spoof your GPS location in Wizard Unite to get more out of the game without having to travel far and wide.
What Is Harry Potter – Wizards Unite?
Ever heard of Pokémon Go? We bet you have. If you liked it, there’s a great chance you’ll love Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. This is an augmented reality mobile game for users of iOS and Android devices. It offers players a chance to battle dark forces and restore chaotic magic that is rampantly spreading across the Muggle and Wizards world. Just like in Harry Potter books and films, you are supposed to keep the muggle world from finding out about the secrets of the wizarding world. As the player, you will get to play alongside some of your favorite characters not only from the Harry Potter franchise but also from Fantastic Beasts.
How Do You Play Wizards Unite?
The whole premise behind this highly interactive game is Harry Potter and his fellow wizards and witches being pitted against dark beasts and other forces. Because of an unexplained event referred to as the “Calamity” in the game, magical items are being scattered across the Muggle. You are required to save some characters in the book from this event. Also known as No-Maj, the Muggle is explored by walking around your real-world environment using your phone, similar to how you do in Pokémon Go.
It shouldn't really come as a surprise that Wizards Unite was developed by Niantic and WB Games, the same developers for Pokémon Go. As of June 2019, the game was available for download – in both Android and iPhone app stores – in more than 150 countries around the world. Just like all AR location-based games, players can also spoof their location in Wizards Unite.
