A number of spooky-themed events will be taking place in Niantic's Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite this month as Halloween descends upon us. This will be a series of events that will place throughout October which they're calling Dark Arts month.

From 8th-14th October players will be able to start a new quest called Fighting Forces Brilliant Part 1. As you might expect from a darker tale from the Harry Potter universe it will involve an Azkaban escapee and a Death Eater. The second part of this quest will take place from October 22nd - 28th where Dementors and Sirius Black will join the tale.

To fill the gap between the two parts there will be a community day on 19th. On this particular day, you can expect more uncanny creatures to start appearing all over the place. Vampires, Werewolves and Doxies will appear with more frequency than usual.

 

The Dark Arts month will close out with a final quest on Halloween. This will see players taking on Dark Arts themed Wizarding Challenge Fortress Chamber. This quest will offer players a number of limited-time rewards so if you're an ardent Wizard's Unite fan then you won't want to miss it.

If you're unfamiliar with Wizards Unite (somehow) it's essentially Niantic's Harry Potter alter ego for Pokemon Go. Except rather than capturing monsters to put in your pocket you'll be slinging spells at various enemies either on your lonesome or with pals.

We didn't think Wizard's Unite was up to much when it launched earlier this year for a few reasons. But that hasn't stopped hundreds of Potter fans from enjoying the game regardless with over 5 million people opting to leave their muggle life behind.

Harry Potter: Wizard's Unite is available now on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
