Much like Pokemon GO's successful monthly events, Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is attempting to continue hype for its mobile AR game from month to month with recurring Community Day events. The Pokemon GO Community Day themes are a little easier to keep straight, since each one is just built around a single Pokemon, but Wizards Unite is still working on developing that kind of clarity. For now, Niantic is ready to share the first details about the wizarding game's next 2019 Community Day event.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite players will be heading out into their communities on October 19 for three solid hours of gameplay. The September Wizards Unite Community Day was a big hit, so the fanbase is eager for the next event. The event puts a big focus on bonus XP and spooky scary encounters. The event is definitely taking advantage of the Halloween spirit and players should head out with some friends when things kick off next weekend. So far, there isn't the same kind of daily motivation to interact with friends like there is in Pokemon GO thanks to Gifts.
At this point, here is everything we know about the upcoming October 19 event...
