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…

‘Jurassic World Alive’ Expands with Exciting New Sanctuaries Update!

The ‘Jurassic World Alive’ released their 1.8 update, which now includes Sanctuaries!

In the game, the DPG uses Sanctuaries as safe places to feed and care for prehistoric creatures. You can feed, interact, and play with any of creatures that are placed in a Sanctuary. Feeding time includes goats for the carnivores, while herbivores get bunches of greens! He’s gonna eat the goat?!

While not indicative of gameplay, the live-action CG dinosaurs in the ad are quite exciting – it’s rare for Jurassic to see film quality visuals in expanded materials, and we’ll happily take more like it! Now if only they’d feature some of the more obscure dinosaurs from the films that we didn’t get to spend as much time with. For a real look at the update, check out the images below!

The DPG has built dinosaur Sanctuaries all over the world to help DPG members protect and care for their creatures. Place your creatures in these Sanctuaries to feed, play, and interact with them, then collect their DNA. Work together with other players to improve your Sanctuaries, care for each other’s creatures, and get more rewards!

Work with other DPG members to care for the creatures to receive DNA and rewards that help level up the Sanctuaries. This allows players to get up close and personal with their dinosaurs, and build a more authentic relationship with their digital prehistoric friends. Being able to play and feed the creatures makes the Sanctuaries feel a bit like a Jurassic Tamagotchi!

In other ‘Alive’ news, the ‘Battle at Big Rock’ Allosaurus and Nasutoceratops will be coming to the game in a future release! A first look was dropped on Twitter earlier this week:

While the Nasutoceratops looks to be an incredible addition to the Jurassic roster, we’re not so sure about that “Allosaurus” – in fact there has been some speculation online that it may not be an Allosaurus at all, as it doesn’t look anything like the species in question. However, the game labels it as such, and it does match the equally non-Allosaur Mattel toy. If Big Rock does feature that design, it means the Allosaurus design attempts are 0/2, but maybe third time is the charm with Jurassic World 3?

Design issues aside, we’re even more intrigued by what Battle at Big Rock may be – from toys to game tie ins, it’s being treated more and more like the films themselves, and not just a simply web feature. Even stranger is how the external media is being released, but nothing has been officially announced. We’re not sure what is going on, but we are excited!

If you play Jurassic World Alive, are you enjoying the Sanctuaries? Also, what new features would you like to see added to the game? Let us know in the comments!

  1. There is NO way that’s supposed to be an Allosaurus, right? I was excited when I hearrd the rumors of a new adult design, but that’s awful…

  2. That Allosaurus looks like a generic unnamed dollar store dinosaur come to life!!! What a letdown.

    I live the Sanctuary update though, it’s so much fun!!!

  3. More to the point of sanctuaries…….It feels
    underwhelming. The cap is very small and unless you only get 9 epic DNA and so far looks like 31 rare and closer to 100 common at least at the level 5 sanctuary. After level 5 the sanctuary trickles up as you now start running out of reSources because you only get 4 of each and the reset of each supply drop and free incubator.

  4. What’s so bad about the Allosaur now, that you didn’t know as soon as the toy released?

    I despise design changes in the Dinosaurs as much as any self-respecting JP fan.

    But we all knew this one was strange and different Months ago…

        1. Im no Trevorrow apologist but it seems unfair to blame him when we dont know if he was involved. Sure the Allosaurus is ugly AF but we dont even know what battle at big rock is!

  5. Unpopular Opinion: I actually kinda like the new Allosaurus design. Maybe it could do without the spines?

  6. Yeah the Allosaurus looks to be the worst dinosaur design the films have ever suffered BUT HOW GOOD IS THAT NASUTOCERATOPS
