On Tuesday, June 18th, was the first Exclusive Event for Wizards Unite where several content creators were invited to get an exclusive look at the upcoming game to be released worldwide on June 21. The event took place between 7:30 and 10:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
Below, we provided live updates from the LA Event for all Wizards and Witches to benefit from. We also had a live Twitter thread, so make sure to follow us on Twitter as well.
Exclusive New Details
- A release of the game in China is NOT in the current plans;
- Regionals have been confirmed to be implemented in the game;
