Jurassic World Alive Is Basically Pokemon Go Meets Dinosaurs

The gameplay and map look identical to Pokemon GO, making it easy for gamers to grow accustomed to it. Later this spring, Jurassic World Alive will debut, allowing players to interact with dinosaurs in the world around them. Ludia previously developed Jurassic Park Builder in 2012 and Jurassic World: The Game in 2015.

Your dinosaurs can battle ones collected by other players.

While you might write it off as just another mobile game rip-off, there are some pretty tempting differences. This virtual companion will scan the surrounding area for dinosaurs in your place. Also, unlike Pokémon GO, Alive will launch with PVP battles, which is something that Niantic has been accused of missing out from their game.

In our opinion, this is a welcome change of pace, since this might be the first decent tribute to Pokemon GO to appear, and after such a long time since the original Augmented Reality game showed up. Users will be able to collect dinosaurs, and create their own hybrid creatures in a lab, then pose and take AR pictures with their creatures and share them on social media.

Alive isn't the only big JP game to come out this year; Frontier Developments is bringing park simulator game Jurassic World Evolutions to PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the summer.

The game will have over 100 dinosaurs available at launch but developer Ludia says that it will be regularly updated with more species, including special "hybrid" and "super hybrid" animals with presumably better stats and "more advanced capabilities". With its sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in theaters this June, the franchise thought it'd spice up the release. Universal and Ludia have set up jurassicworldalive.com with more info and the ability for fans to pre-register.
