Adjust Comment Print

Variety reports that Jurassic World Alive will be "the first Jurassic World mobile game that will use augmented reality to allow users to interact with dinosaurs as if they were physically present".

Since Michael Crichton first opened the gates to those unsafe 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. Developed by Ludia Games, Jurassic World Alive is available for pre-register in the play store.

Mobile game Pokémon Go became an instant hit in mid 2016 thanks largely to its use of augmented reality (AR). They have fled Jurassic World™ on the unstable island of Isla Nublar....and they're roaming free in your cities and neighborhoods!

Jurassic World Alive will bow globally this spring for iOS and Android devices, ahead of the film release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in June.

Players can see dinosaurs in their immediate vicinity on an in-game map and some of them will be tied to specific locations. To these types of games, we can add one more, Jurassic World Alive. Because dinosaurs would at best be perplexed by you throwing a ball at them, the developers have given the formula a small twist: you're collecting DNA, not actual dinos.

AR games mean big business at the moment, and even if Pokémon GO has hemorrhaged players, companies are still working on similar models for the likes of Harry Potter, The Walking Dead, and Ghostbusters. In a very Pokemon Go-like way, the developer said players are even able to assemble the "perfect dinosaur strike team" and "take on unsafe threats in real-time PVP arena battles" with other players.

"Jurassic World Alive" is part of Universal's foray into gaming having expanded its game development team in recent months.

What this game brings new to the table is that players don't have to run around as much!
