Details For Basilisk & Aragog Event In Harry Potter: Wizards Unite

April is a busy month for those in the Wizarding World fighting to suppress the Calamity in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite. Niantic's narrative mobile game which picks up the story of J. K. RowlingsHarry Potter novels years later will wrap up its A Weasley Predicament Brilliant Event on Monday only to launch right into the second Adversaries event of the month. This Adversaries event, a battle-centric event that invites players to enter into three-tiered wizarding combat chains with enemies from the books, will take inspiration from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with its two focused Adversaries: Aragog the Acromantula from one of the book's most terrifying scenes and the Basilisk that dwelt in the chamber, slithering and hissing through the walls of Hogwarts.
