‘Jurassic World Alive’ will be ‘Pokémon Go’ with dinosaurs

Pokemon Go meets Jurassic World

Augmented reality games are exploding this year. So far we have a Harry Potter, a Ghostbusters one, and now you can add Jurassic World to that list with the newly announced Jurassic World Alive augmented reality game.

As a brand-new member of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG), your mission is to save dinosaurs from a second extinction. One big difference between this game and others is that you won’t actually have to walk around to collect dinosaurs. You’ll be able to deploy a drone that will go and collect DNA samples.

“We really see this game as the future of the Jurassic World franchise on mobile. This is really the first time that we have allowed you to take the dinosaurs off the island and out of our storytelling world, and into your real world.” – Chris Heatherly – Universal Pictures Executive VP of Games.

EXPLORE your world with location-based technology and discover dinosaurs on a map. Identify behavior patterns to track specific species in their natural habitats.

COLLECT rare and powerful breeds by flying a drone with precise accuracy. Capture DNA samples and maintain a full roster of thriving prehistoric animals.

CREATE hybrid creatures by combining the genetic traits of multiple species to develop their strengths and abilities.

BATTLE a strike team of dinosaurs to defend against threats to your mission and challenge others in real-time PVP competitive arenas.

EARN rewards such as in-game currency and battery life for your drone by finding Supply Drops on the map.

SHARE your legendary dinosaur collection with friends by posting your AR images and videos to your social pages!

The game is launching with over 100 dinosaurs, with planned updates to add even more dinos in the future.
