Jurassic World Alive is Pokémon Go but with dinosaurs

Coming to mobile this spring

The monster hunting of Pokémon Go meets dinosaurs in Jurassic World Alive, a new augmented reality, location-based game for Android and iOS coming this spring. Developed by Ludia, which has previously worked on Jurassic World: The Game and Jurassic Park Builder, Jurassic World Alive will let players track, collect and do battle with dinosaurs.

Jurassic World Alive puts players in the role of a new recruit in the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG). Players are tasked with saving dinosaurs from another extinction by tracking them, collecting DNA samples and creating new hybrid species in a lab. Those man-made dinos can be assembled into a team and fight in player-versus-player arena battles, which kind of seems counterproductive to the whole dinosaur protection thing.

In a press release, Universal and Ludia said players will track their Jurassic prey with a drone, and must track down supply drops in-game to earn in-game currency and battery life for that drone.

Universal and Ludia are currently accepting registration for Jurassic World Alive on the game’s official website. Here’s a look at some screenshots of the game:

Jurassic World Alive joins park simulation game Jurassic World Evolution and a trio of Jurassic World-themed tables for Zen Pinball on the list of tie-in games hitting alongside the next film in the franchise, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
