What's more is that these new types of dinosaurs are capable of being fought against another player's creations in PvP arena battles, which is a much-requested feature yet to be implemented by Niantic in Pokemon GO. However, one major difference between Jurassic World Alive and Pokemon Go is that players will not need to actually go outside and walk around to capture the dinosaurs. This virtual companion will scan the surrounding area for dinosaurs in your place.

Jurassic World Alive is the result of a partnership between franchise holders Universal and videogame developers Ludia, and is the third title to be produced by the partnership.

You'll also be able to take photos and videos of the dinosaurs you collect during gameplay. Those who will go for it, an in-game incubator awaits them at the time of the game launch.

Mobile game Pokémon Go became an instant hit in mid 2016 thanks largely to its use of augmented reality (AR). Gamers are encouraged to catch as numerous 100 dinosaurs (upon initial release) and collect DNA to help make them the biggest beast that they can. After creating genetically modified dinosaurs in a lab, they can then be used in real-time, player-vs. -player battles to earn rewards. The developer's games portfolio including "Jurassic World: The Game", "What's Your Story?", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Legends", "Dragons: Rise of Berk", "Family Feud 2 & Friends" and "The Price Is Right".

At launch Universal is aiming to have approximately 100 dinosaurs to find but they're planning regular updates to tie-in with upcoming film releases as well as special hybrids to unlock. With the Jurassic Park brand now 28 years old and showing no signs of slowing down, Jurassic World Alive is a particularly clever move on Universal's side.

"We really see this game as the future of the Jurassic World franchise on mobile", says Heatherly.

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. Players can even opt to pre-register now at the official site.
