The Pokémon Go-like game is based on the Jurassic World films
With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom set to open in theatres on June 22nd, the new AR mobile game Jurassic World Alive has been officially rolled out on a global scale across Android and iOS mobile devices. The game, which is not unlike Niantic’s popular Pokémon Go, enables users to find and capture dinosaurs in the real world.
The free game features both AR-based imagery and location-based technology
This new ar mobile game is the third in a series of mobile games from Universal and Ludia that are based on the Jurassic World movie franchise. Jurassic World Alive has been designed as a follow-up to the Jurassic World: The Game.
While players may notice a few similarities between the two titles, Jurassic World Alive is equipped with extra elements of location-based technology and augmented reality-based imagery that enables players to pose and take pictures and videos with the dinosaurs they collect as they play.
These new features help to create a far more immersive world for players and encourages more exploration.
Capture dinosaurs and battle other players in real time in the new AR mobile game.
In Jurassic World Alive, players will encounter dinosaurs from Jurassic Word and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom as they explore their real-world neighborhoods. Similarly to Pokémon Go, the objective is for mobile players to collect the different dinosaurs they come across. However, instead of using a Pokéball, they’ll capture the DNA samples of these prehistoric creates with an in-game drone.
Players can then level up and create genetically modified dinosaurs in the lab to build a team of dinosaurs to engage other players in real-time player-versus-player arena battles. Taking part in these battles gives players the chance to earn more rewards.
“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 press release.
“We’re giving them the opportunity to explore and connect with likeminded players while building and interacting with these powerful prehistoric species.”
The new AR mobile game is available for free and can be downloaded from both Apple’s App Store and the Google Play store.
