Wizards Unite will first launch in the U.S. and U.K. before it’s officially available in Canada at a later, unspecified date.
However, similar to Pokémon Go, it’ll likely be possible to play the game in Canada ahead of its official launch by sideloading the app. If that is, in fact, the case, MobileSyrup will provide a guide on how to play the game early.
Like Pokémon Go, Wizards Unite is a location-based augmented reality (AR) game. In Wizards Unite, players are tasked with capturing magical creatures that have escaped from the wizarding world.
