Niantic and Warner Bros Games have released an update for Harry Potter: Wizards Unite that lets you take on powerful enemies from the Harry Potter franchise.
Fittingly named the Adversaries update, the new content sees you battling with Slytherin’s Basilisk, Fenrir Greyback, Draco Malfoy, Ballatrix Lestrange, and more. Rewards include Wizarding XP, Challenge XP, and a chance at Defense Against the Dark Arts Books.
You can find these adversaries on map or during a series of brand new Adversaries events. To join a battle, just tap on the Dark Mark icon. Each battle consists of a series of fights, and while you regain your health between each bout, once you lose you’re out – though you get to keep the rewards you’ve incrementally accumulated.
Adversaries can be either Feared or Lethal, with Feared ones appearing randomly and Lethal ones appearing during certain monthly events. You can also spawn both Feared and Lethal adversaries once they’ve been introduced to the map.
In case you missed it, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an AR game along the lines of Pokemon GO. It sees you exploring the real world using your phone as a viewfinder that transforms real backgrounds into magic-infused wonderscapes full of settings and characters from the Harry Potter universe.
You can download Harry Potter: Wizards Unite for free right now on the Google Play Store.
