The makers of Pokémon GO have revealed a bunch of gameplay details for the upcoming Harry Potter AR game, Wizards Unite, and by the looks of it, your neighbourhood will soon be filled with gamers casting bulk spells.

The Harry Potter Wizards Unite beta is being playtested internally right now, with fans now able to Pre-register for access to the game on the Google Play Store.

Cast as an enforcer for the Statute of Secrecy Task Force - the organisation that keeps the magical world secret from us Muggles - players will find magical creatures, artefacts and characters, tracing spells on the phone's screen to return them to their proper place.

Players who "step outside and explore the world" will see "Traces of magic highlighting the location of magical Foundables".

Every Foundable that's successfully fought for and collected gets added to a player's Registry, with the main object of the game being to pack your Registry as full as you can.

Niantic's previous game, Pokémon Go, became a global phenomenon when it was released in 2016, peaking at 300 million players.

The setting for Wizards Unite is as follows. When these foes are especially powerful, like Dementors and Death Eaters, the player will be able to call on the help of fellow Wizards Unite users, in pursuit of rare rewards. Be sure to regularly stop by Inns, found at Muggle locations around the world, to collect food and drinks that replenish your Spell Energy. Lastly, Portmanteaus can be unlocked to reveal Portkeys that whisk you away to iconic wizarding world locations.

The wizarding world has finally magicked its way onto mobile with Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery for Android and iOS devices. "So the team rallied, and we've had so many more events since".

Niantic is still keeping the lid tight on the release date for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

To further develop your wizarding skills, you can also choose to specialize in different magical Professions. Eurogamer has gone hands-on with the title to explain that when "playing a beta version of Wizards Unite, it already feels as deep and well-rounded as Pokémon Go does in its third year - with layers of familiar and fresh-feeling ideas and servers that mostly play (Poké) ball", which clearly points to something similar that's also trying to do its own thing.
