Jurassic World goes AR with Pokemon GO-esque mobile game

Share

According to a press release, Jurassic World Alive will have players take on a role in the Dinosaur Protection Group and be tasked with saving dinosaurs from yet another extinction by tracking them, collecting DNA samples, and breeding new hybrid species.

The game appears to look like Pokemon GO, using AR technology to bring computer-generated figures into our everyday world.

All things considered, with the popularity of the Jurassic Park franchise backing Jurassic World Alive, it's quite possible that the forthcoming ARG from Ludia will go on to be a smashing success with dinosaur lovers and fans of the property.

Max Whittington , Watson's attorney in the OR lawsuits, said they may be the first of their kind filed in the country. A Walmart spokesman said the retailer will defend its new policy to only sell firearms to those 21 and older.

Since Michael Crichton first opened the gates to those risky dinos with his Jurassic Park novel, there has been a whole movie franchise, more merchandise that you shake a raptor claw at, comic books, and many video games of varying success.

Your dinosaurs can battle ones collected by other players.

"There's definitely that element of discovery, but we wanted to make it a little more flexible and also give you something to do at home", says Chris Heatherly, Universal's executive vice president of games. While Pokémon GO got us up and moving, those who take to Alive don't even have to leave the comfort of their Ford Explorer to catch the dinosaurs and can use an in-game drone.

Bear in mind, spoilers for Star Rebels , The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi will be discussed in this article. As Filoni puts it, "If the whole Ghost crew is there, [the Rogue One characters would] get off that planet".

You'll also be able to pit your dinos and against other players' dinos in battles or you can simply show off your creations to the world by taking selfies with them. Pokemon Go players will find themselves instantly familiar with the game. Both Jurassic Park Builder and Jurassic World: The Game fared well with fans old and new, and interestingly, Montreal-based gaming company Ludia developed the two previous games and will be the ones to helm Alive.

The game will have over 100 dinosaurs at launch but it will be regularly updated with more creatures.

The game will arrive on the App Store, and for Android devices, before "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" hits theaters on Friday, June 22. Players can even opt to pre-register now at the official site.
