Since its launch, Pokemon Go has been without a doubt the world’s most popular augmented reality, location-based mobile game. However, like 2018 this year 2020 will see a string of big-name competitors try to steal its crown. Like Harry Potter: Wizards Unite was announced back in November 2017, with a launch date of sometime in the summer, while other similar games based on Ghostbusters and The Walking Dead have been announced and are due for release this year 2020 well. Another one is Jurassic World: Alive, which is set to use modern-day technology to bring back dinosaurs from millions of years ago. Here’s what we know so far about this future hit game in the making.
The premise of Jurassic World: Alive is that dinosaurs have fled Isla Nublar and are now freely roaming throughout the world. You’re a part of the DPG, or Dinosaur Protection Group, and you’re tasked with helping prevent the dinosaurs from a second extinction. Track down dinosaurs by exploring the world around you and use a drone (an in-game one, that is) to help find rarer species. Collect DNA samples and combine them to create new and exciting creatures. Assemble a team of your best dinosaurs and use them to ward off threats and even challenge other players to battles. The game will launch with around 100 different dinosaurs, with more to be added later on.
Developers and release date
The game is being developed by a company called Ludia in partnership with Universal. Despite it being named after the Jurassic World movie, it hasn’t been confirmed whether any of the movie’s human characters will appear in the game in any shape or form. As for a release date, all that’s been said so far is that the game is due to be released in the second quarter of the year, so anytime between April and June. It’s set to be available on both iOS and Android devices.
