Break the FOMO… get your wands out!

After officially launching Harry Potter: Wizards Unite in the U.S., the U.K., Australia and Newzealand on Friday, Niantic has finally rolled out the game to 25 additional countries.

As reported earlier, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was developed by the creators of Pokemon Go, making the gameplay pretty much similar with Pokemon Go, except that you have to battle out spiders and dementors with wands instead of pokeballs. With the new game, players would be able to visit iconic locations in the wizarding world through augmented reality (AR)-powered Portkeys. They can also face Wizarding Challenges together with other players and collect clues to solve the mystery behind “The Calamity.”

The Calamity causes artefacts, creatures, people, and even memories to mysteriously appear in the Muggle world.

Niantic co-developed and co-published the game with Warner Bros. Games San Francisco, whose parent company, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, produced the Harry Potter franchise. Prior to the launch in the first markets, Niantic and WB Games hosted an event outside the Warner Bros. studios, letting some guests try out the game.

Starting today, the game will be available for download on Google Play Store, Apple’s App Store and the Samsung Galaxy Store in the following countries:

  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Brunei Darussalam
  • Canada
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Iceland
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Ireland
  • Italy
  • Luxembourg
  • Malaysia
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • Norway
  • Papua New Guinea
  • Philippines
  • Portugal
  • Singapore
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland

Niantic promised to roll out the game to additional countries in the coming weeks. This way, the company would be able to keep its servers stable.
