Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is the new AR game from the developers of Pokemon Go. Since Pokemon Go was such a big hit, it makes sense that another franchise is getting in on AR mobile games. WB Games has confirmed that the game does have microtransaction but everything can be earned as well.
WB Games San Francisco executive producer Mary Casey talked about the game and mentioned that the game is balanced for players. It is free to play and free to download but there are microtransactions. Here is what she had to say regarding the matter:
Absolutely, so the game is free to play and free to download, there are microtransactions within the game, we have been really diligent about making everything in the game is accessible to everybody, and that the game remains fair and balanced for all players. If players did want to potentially speed up some parts of the game, then they would be able to do that by making some microtransactional purchases throughout the game, but game balance-wise, we ensure that the game remains playable to all without any of the purchases.
This is the same business model that Pokemon Go uses. You can grind and get rewards or you can just spend money and skip the grind. It does make sense. This is a free-to-play game and the developers do need to make money from it. At the end of the day, WB and Niantic are in this business to make money.
We have got some highlights of what the game is going to be like and it seems very impressive indeed. If it is indeed similar to Pokemon Go then I am sure that Harry Potter fans around the world are going to love it. I am sure that people are going to give it a try at least once. I know I will.
