Trailer For Augmented Reality Game Jurassic World Alive Arrives

Universal Studios has announced a tie-in game with the new Jurassic Park movie, and it bears more than a passing resemblance to Pokémon Go, to put it mildly. It's all location-based to allow you to find and discover dinosaurs in the "real world" by exploring the world. They have fled Jurassic World on the unstable island of Isla Nublar... and they're roaming free in your cities and neighbourhoods. What's more is that these new types of dinosaurs are capable of being fought against another player's creations in PvP arena battles, which is a much-requested feature yet to be implemented by Niantic in Pokemon GO. There are plenty of rip-off style games out there, there's a Ghostbusters AR game in development, and even the creators of Pokemon Go are working on a Harry Potter AR game that uses a lot of the same elements. You can pre-register for the game on its official site to get updates about its release.

Roaring into the iOS App Store and Android's Google Play in time for the premiere of the new Jurassic World movie, the mobile game works on a very similar augmented reality platform to that of Pokémon GO.

Basically, you'll be playing as a part of the Dinosaur Protection Group on a quest to save dinosaurs from extinction, according to the press release (via Game Rant). They can these use them to breed their own creatures using hybrid DNA and pit their collections against other players dinosaurs in battle.

There's no solid release date for this title beyond "coming soon", but hopefully the end result includes at least one instance of a player being surrounded by a pair of augmented reality Velociraptors when they venture outside.

"Jurassic World Alive" shows the AR trend for mobile gaming hasn't faded yet.

"With Jurassic World Alive, our goal is for audiences to be fully immersed into a world with living dinosaurs in a way that's never been possible until today", said Alex Thabet, President and CEO of Ludia, in a statement.

So what do you do with your dinosaurs besides collect them? A year after its release the game had been downloaded more than 750 million times, making other major franchises crane their necks.
