The Halloween spirit has taken over the world of gaming and its hard to login to any always online title and not find a seasonal event underway at this point (even Red Dead Redemption is celebrating Halloween). Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is no exception and witches and wizards can now learn a lot more details about the upcoming Harrowing Halloween event in the mobile AR title.

Although a few festivities have popped up throughout the month of October (much like Pokemon GO's Halloween activities), the real event is about to kick off. Players should get ready for some very exciting effects taking place for a few hours on October 30.

Harry Potter: Wizards Unite has had some very successful events so far and, although the game isn't quite as popular as PoGO, it still has a thriving community. This late October bonus event is going to be well worth the effort for players who show up and get out to play for a few hours...

Event Description
