The gaming world is one area of technology that will always improve year on year. Be it on the consoles, mobile phones or anywhere else, it is sure that we will always get new, exciting and thrilling content to keep us gaming. If you have been following the news for a while now, you will agree with us when we say augmented reality games are the future of the gaming world.

A lot has been said about augmented reality up to this point. From the time when some believed it was just a fleeting thought to now when the technology is very much at our beck and call, it has been a journey worth keeping tabs on. Now that we are at the end of this year already, we might not be able to get a lot of good titles in the world of augmented reality right now.

However, one thing you should know is that the year 2018 is shaping up to be the year of augmented reality games. If we are not sure of any other thing, we have it on good grounds that Harry Potter and Star Wars will get a mobile augmented reality game version in the year 2018.

For the Star Wars fans, you get to play alongside the major characters in the franchise. What makes the deal even better is the inclusion of a lightsabre for use in the game pack. Of course, this is not the actual thing, but with your AR headset on, you won’t be able to tell the difference.

As the new year is rolling in, get ready to battle enemies of the universe with your very own lightsabre.
Moving on to the next interesting title, you get to see what goes on in the head of Harry Pitter when you take on the Wizarding world. Niantic, alongside Warner Bros, is the main developer in charge of bringing this to the ARs.

To make things even better, you might not need to get a heavy console before you enjoy all the offerings of the game since it is coming to mobile. What you would need, given the history of Niantic with heavy games, is a high-end phone to render your virtual environment seamlessly.

As of the time of writing this post, there is not much information on both games, and other titles to grace the augmented reality games scene for next year. But, as soon as we pick up some news, you’ll be the first to know about it.
