Landing This Spring, Jurassic World Alive Combines AR and Dinosaurs

Jurassic World Pokemon Go-Like AR Mobile Game Announced 'Jurassic World' Mobile Game With 'Pokémon Go'-Like Features Set for Spring 2018 Launch

The cool thing about this new game is that you can do more with the dinosaurs apart from just looking at them and catching them.

Since Michael Crichton first opened the gates to those risky dinos with his Jurassic Park novel, there has been a whole movie franchise, more merchandise that you shake a raptor claw at, comic books, and many video games of varying success. The latest is Jurassic World Alive, an AR mobile app that lets users collect dinosaurs.

Pokemon Go popularized AR (augmented reality) video games back when it came out in 2016. Gamers are encouraged to catch as numerous 100 dinosaurs (upon initial release) and collect DNA to help make them the biggest beast that they can. Jurassic World Alive will be released across iOS and Android platforms.

Players can see dinosaurs in their immediate vicinity on an in-game map and some of them will be tied to specific locations.

Players discover dinosaurs by locating them on a map and deploying an in-game drone to collect DNA samples, and can then level up and create genetically modified dinosaurs in a lab to compete in real-time player-versus-player arena battles to earn more rewards.

While these storms might look like the same cyclone with branched arms, they are actually separate storms that are densely packed. However, there's also a downside to the Juno mission: it offered so much valuable data that it's gonna be very hard to top it.


"With Jurassic World Alive, our goal is for audiences to be fully immersed into a world with living dinosaurs in a way that's never been possible until today", said Alex Thabet, President and CEO of Ludia, in a statement.

Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, and The Walking Dead all have AR games similar to this one in various stages of development, and they're all chasing the phenomenon that was Pokemon Go.

"Alive" sets the dinosaurs free across the world!

Then that's where the fun stuff really starts as you can eventually have your dinosaurs fight other players' dinosaurs in matches that will probably resemble, you guessed it, Pokemon.

When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. If it sounds interesting, fans are encouraged to register at the official site now.
