Recently, objects, people, and even memories have been mysteriously appearing in the real world. These manifestations, known as Foundables, are scattered across the globe, hidden in plain sight but veiled by Confoundable barriers of magic.
Your Harry Potter: Wizards Unite journey begins as a Statute of Secrecy Task Force volunteer. As a volunteer, your primary objective will be to return as many Foundables as possible back to their proper time and place before the chaotic magic concealing them wears off. In addition, you will assist in trying to understand the Calamity and the powerful spell that brought on this catastrophic event.
Not much is understood about the Calamity itself, aside from the fact that it was caused by an incredibly powerful spell. The spell seems to have stolen the things which wizards and witches fear, revere, or hold dear and manifests them elsewhere as Foundables. The Confoundable barriers of magic also appear to be there to prevent the Foundables from being recovered, often requiring a wizard to cast a very powerful spell to return a Foundable back to where it belongs.
The rumours surrounding the Calamity suggest Grim Fawley might be the cause of the trouble. Fawley, an Unspeakable who works in the Ministry’s Department of Mysteries, began acting erratically several years ago—shortly after the Ministry ended their search for his wife, Penelope. Penelope had gone missing, along with several other people, in a sensational missing-persons case known throughout the world as the “London Five.” Grim, in an act of retribution for the Ministry’s decision to end the search, is believed to be the man behind the Calamity.
To return Foundables and restore order, you’ll need to get outside and explore the world around you! The game’s main screen is the Map, which was designed to help you locate the missing Foundables as they appear in the world.
Magical Traces on the Map indicate the position of displaced Foundables. To return them, tap and enter Traces to see the Foundable and the Confoundable barrier you need to remove. Confoundables manifest in various forms and are chaotic in nature. You’ll cast a variety of spells to overcome them, but be careful—Confoundables resist and may depart with the Foundable if your spell is not strong enough.
In addition to finding Traces, you should also travel to Fortress locations on the Map. Fortresses appeared across the world, trapping the rarest and most powerful Foundables inside. In order to return the Foundables trapped inside a Fortress, you’ll need to enter Chambers and engage in exciting combat against the dangerous Foes inside. Defeat them and successfully return the trapped Foundables from the Fortress Chamber.
As you send Foundables back to their proper time and place, your progress will be kept in a Registry. The Registry is a categorized listing of all the missing Foundables known to the Ministry. Everything that has been reported missing can be found here. Some Foundables are fragmented, so you’ll need to encounter these Foundables several times to obtain enough Fragments to completely return them.
