Muggles in Australia and New Zealand can try outas the beta kicks off in their countries.
Developer Niantic is warning players that this isn't the final version of the augmented reality (AR) game, which is location-based like Pokemon Go and tasks players with tracking down magical creatures and artifacts as part of the Statute of Secrecy Task Force.
"Features, available languages, design, and overall appearance are not final," Niantic said Wednesday in a release. "The product might be buggy and unstable at times."
It didn't offer any details about expanding the beta to other countries and noted that the "core gameplay experience" will only be active in regions that are officially in the beta, so you'd probably have only have access to a truncated version if you used trickery to download it and tried to play outside Australia or New Zealand.
