Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

New ‘Jurassic World: Alive’ Game Teases Pokemon Go Style Experience!

Hold on to your butts, and get ready… to clone them all?

It feels like it was just yesterday when the Pokemon Go game launched with a social media explosion, bringing that world to life in ours via a clever AR experience. One of things Jurassic fans kept bringing up was how amazing a Jurassic Park game offering the same experience would be – and it seems Universal Pictures and Ludia thought the same thing!

Launching this Spring, ‘Jurassic World: Alive’ sets the dinosaurs free across the world!

They’re ALIVE in our world!

Dinosaurs have returned to rule the Earth. They have fled Jurassic World on the unstable island of Isla Nublar….and they’re roaming free in your cities and neighborhoods.

As a brand-new member of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG), your mission is to save dinosaurs from a second extinction. Explore your surrounding area to find your favorite dinosaurs – including new breeds that are more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Activate augmented reality (AR) to interact with these unbelievable creatures in the real world.

Track these magnificent animals with a drone and collect DNA samples needed to level up and create hybrids in your Lab. Then, assemble the perfect dinosaur strike team and take on dangerous threats in real-time PVP arena battles!

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!

“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

One of the key differences between Jurassic World Alive and Pokemon Go is that to play the game and obtain new creatures, you won’t actually need to explore in real time (though that element is supported). Instead you can send out a ‘drone’ from your house (or workplace, school and so on) to scout out the dinosaurs and collect DNA, offering more ways to play, keeping the game fresh if you’re anchored to one spot.

The game is launching with over 100 dinosaurs, but the goal is to constantly update the animals available within the world, adding to diverse roster of prehistoric titans. Further, you can create your hybrid dinosaurs from the DNA you obtain in game, allowing you to create any dinosaur of your choosing to collect and battle!

“There’s a major focus in this game on the hybrids and super hybrids to create this almost infinite matrix of possibilities” – Ludia CEO Alex Thabet

  1. Omg this looks amazing! I love how you don’t have to travel the world to “catch” dinosaurs. If you don’t quite have your license yet (like me), you can play from your bedroom! I do wonder how this hybrid system is going to work. Will you just put a bunch of different dinosaur pieces together (think ultimasaurus), or will each hybrid have a model, like Jurassic World the Game?

    Does anyone know how much this app will cost, and if it will be available on iTunes?

  2. If only the models were a higher quality, but otherwise great! I hope they don’t screw it up like Niantic did with Pokemon Go.

  3. And yet another failed attempt to get kids to play outside. Wait. do you have to travel for this game? Don’t get me wrong! I am just as excited as you guys. I just hope it isn’t as bad a fail as Pokemon GO was. That is my only concern. I’m happy with the Dino models. they are much better than the Pokemon ones. The battle feature looks AWESOME!!! I cant wait to download it! How many species are there to catch? How do you “catch” them? How common are supply drops? Ugh!!! so many Questions!

  4. I really like the drone idea, not being able to catch anything in Pokémon Go because of WiFi etc was the main reason people stopped playing. Though I do think this will be completely of the radar after 1 or 2 months

  5. I said it once and I’ll say it again, this will be the perfect distraction while I wait for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom and Jurassic World Evolution. Once I get my hands on Evolution goodbye JWA.
