Landing This Spring, Jurassic World Alive Combines AR and Dinosaurs

Based on the success of the 2015 movie and the hype for the upcoming movie in June, Universal Studios in collaboration with the video game developers at Ludia are releasing Jurrassic World Alive, a brand new mobile game! The gameplay and map look identical to Pokemon GO, making it easy for gamers to grow accustomed to it. Also, unlike Pokémon GO, Alive will launch with PVP battles, which is something that Niantic has been accused of missing out from their game. Jurassic World Alive won't force people to go outside and catch dinosaurs if they don't want to.

Quite likePokemon Go, this game will require enabling the Global Positioning System of one's phone to enable one to roam about in one's locality or wherever one is travel so that one can interacting with dinosaurs.

"There's definitely that element of discovery, but we wanted to make it a little more flexible and also give you something to do at home", says Chris Heatherly, Universal's executive VP of games, via Mashable. You can click selfies with your favorite dinosaurs, collect DNA samples and eggs of the ancient giants.

We're quite surprised the wave of Pokemon GO.homages have taken this long to arrive, but between this and the Harry Potter AR game that's supposedly in the works, it appears that you'll soon have many more opportunities to replace the real world with the fantasy one of your choice. They can then use this DNA to unlock that particular type of dinosaur or create their own hybrid, just like the mad scientists did in the Jurassic World movie. The developer's games portfolio including "Jurassic World: The Game", "What's Your Story?", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Legends", "Dragons: Rise of Berk", "Family Feud 2 & Friends" and "The Price Is Right". Being released on iOS and Android, later this spring, Jurassic World Alive conveniently lines its release particularly close to the debut of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Alive isn't the only big JP game to come out this year; Frontier Developments is bringing park simulator game Jurassic World Evolutions to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the summer. If it sounds interesting, fans are encouraged to register at the official site now.
