Universal Announces Pokémon Go-Style Jurassic World Mobile Game

It's clear from the initial information released about the game that Alive will function very similarly to Pokemon GO in that respect.

After Pokemon Go hit the global stage and was a hit among game enthusiasts, R games started coming up with more out of the box ideas.

After the massive success of Pokemon Go, and the new capabilities offered by the ARKit and ARCore toolsets, a number of franchises are looking to augmented reality (AR) to bring a world to life. The other unique premise seems plucked straight from the recent Jurassic World movies, where players can use their hard-earned DNA to play God and create their own hybrid dinosaurs.

Jurassic World Alive is the result of a partnership between franchise holders Universal and videogame developers Ludia, and is the third title to be produced by the partnership. Along with a number of different dinosaur species, there are also in-game incubators. "Explore your surrounding area to find your favorite dinosaurs". Additionally, players can take their collection of dinosaurs to fight against other players, or even take life-sized dinosaur selfies with them. Also, unlike Pokémon GO, Alive will launch with PVP battles, which is something that Niantic has been accused of missing out from their game.

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. After creating genetically modified dinosaurs in a lab, they can then be used in real-time, player-vs. -player battles to earn rewards. The developer previously worked on 2012's Jurassic Park Builder and 2015's Jurassic World: The Game. Jurassic World Alive will come to both Android and iOS in the spring, ahead of the the new Jurassic Park film, called Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which debuts on 22 June in the US. Universal and Ludia have set up jurassicworldalive.com with more info and the ability for fans to pre-register.
