Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is an augmented-reality mobile game released in June 2019. The gameplay is similar to Pokémon GO developed by Niantic. During the pandemic, the game introduced the use of the Knight Bus to help players take on challenges in virtual fortresses no matter where they are. This same feature is expected to remain in the game even after the pandemic.
