Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Introduces Adventure Sync Feature
Posted by Megs

The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite mobile game will be introducing “Adventure Sync” to it’s game play this week. Players familiar with Pokemon Go will already recognize this as a great asset to playing Niantic games. For the uninitiated, the press release below will explain the details:

This highly-requested feature gives players the option to connect their game to Apple Health or Google Fit to record their walking distance — even when Harry Potter: Wizards Unite isn’t running. Once enabled in the game’s Settings menu, player walking distance will be tallied in the background and applied toward unlocking their Portkey Portmanteaus. The game will also notify players once Portmanteaus are unlocked. Adventure Sync is completely optional and can be turned on or off at any time in the game settings.

Alongside Adventure Sync, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite will also release several updates to Portkeys:

• As players unlock Portmanteaus, new artwork will visually differentiate between the different types. 2 km Portmanteaus will reveal a Boot; 5 km a Kettle; and 10 km a Deflated Ball. 

• Some Portkey environments that were only available during past Brilliant Events, such as Umbridge’s Office, will be returning.

• Tapping Wrackspurts within any Portkey will now have a chance to reward players with Spell Energy.

• Players may also discover Foundables which weren’t previously collectible from Portkeys.
