Coming to Harry Potter Wizards Unite: Dragons and Recording Walking Distance without Keeping App On

We have some amazing news for fellow Harry Potter: Wizards Unite fans – and if you read the title of this article, you already know what I’m talking about.

One highly demanded feature is coming to the game in a future update: that of recording your walked distance even when your game is not running on your phone.

This is probably the best possible news a Wizards Unite fan can hear – we all know how much of a pain it was to keep the game running in order to have your walked distance recorded. This new change will be massive indeed.

But that’s not all in terms of HPWU surprises! Dragons are also coming to the game and you can check them out in their entire amazingness below:

The Antipodean Opaleye Dragon

However, there is a catch here and unfortunately dragons will not be permanent residents of the game (at least not so far).

Here are the details, according to the official website:

From the Common Welsh Green to the Antipodean Opaleye, dragons will be making their landfall debut in the game as special Oddities for a limited time only at Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival in Indianapolis this August 31 – September 1. Fans will want to take advantage of this unique opportunity as after the event, the different dragon varieties will only appear in certain regions around the world.

Not sure how many of the Wizards Unite will be able to (or afford to) travel the world in order to capture the Dragons, but even without them I am extremely happy to know that my walking distance will be recorded even when the game won’t be running in the background. That beats dragons in my books.

Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when this will happen… but it will be “soon” – in a future update for the game.
