  • Jurassic World Pokemon Go-Like AR Mobile Game Announced

Jurassic World Alive will allow players to create their own dinosaurs using AR technology.

The game developer Ludia just announced that it's making the Jurassic Park version of Pokemon GO.

Your dinosaurs can battle ones collected by other players.

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

Reportedly the game will be released for Android and iPhone and iPad devices sometime this spring, possibly synchronized somehow with the release of the new movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, and The Walking Dead all have AR games similar to this one in various stages of development, and they're all chasing the phenomenon that was Pokemon Go.

They're ALIVE in our world!

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. It will feature free in-game incubators and exclusive dinosaurs, including creatures featured in "Jurassic World" and "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom". "Players discover dinosaurs by locating them on a map and deploying an in-game drone to collect DNA samples", developer Ludia explained to the Verge.

Anyone that's played around with the AR Stickers on Google's Pixel phones know just how exciting it can be to drop giant things into the world, so the novelty of scale alone should make Jurassic World Alive worth a quick weekend download when it releases this Spring.

When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. The game is now looking for pre-registrations, promising an in-game "incubator" as a reward; presumably to develop dinosaurs.

Gameplay screenshots show two forms of in-game currency, meaning real cash for in-game items may be on the cards, much to the annoyance of parents everywhere.
