As the 2020s continue to provide challenges for us all, the developers at Harry Potter: Wizards Unite have come up with a perfect distraction – jumping into Newt Scamander’s memories of the 1920s! Pick up your wands and prepare yourself for new, century-old adventures, coming soon to Wizards Unite!
Thank you Niantic and WB Games for providing this information early so that we could create this guide.
|UPDATE: August 18-20, 2021 will be the new dates of the first event. A 1920s Wizarding World Convergence will provide you with new content from a completely different point in time!|
Three New Registry Pages!
There will be a new Registry family – 1920s Wizarding World – with three new Registry pages, featuring characters and creatures from Newt’s Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them and its film franchise. The pages – Newt’s Menagerie, Circus Arcanus, and Paris Street – will each have four images to place. We saw a version of the Circus Arcanus during the Circus Calamitous Brilliant Event in March 2020, but the new pages will clearly be redesigned versions.
There’s no word yet on whether players will be able to prestige these pages in the same way as others, or if you will see the Foundables outside of the Convergences, so check back for updates. When we know more, you’ll know more!
Three New Portkey Portmanteaus!
Any time there is a 1920s Wizarding World Convergence, you will have the chance to collect and unlock unique Portmanteaus… as long as you insert a Key before the timer runs out! If you have not inserted a Key, the Portmanteau will disappear shortly after the Convergence ends. So store up those Silver Keys in order to open as many as you can.
Along with other rewards, each 1920s Portkey will grant you access to a window into the past through a new augmented reality Encounter.
