Well, Ludia's upcoming title may not exactly be like Pokemon GO, seeing as how we're talking about Jurassic Park dinosaurs, so it's safe to say they're a bit larger than Pokemon GO creatures. Yeah, just a little bit.

However, Jurassic World: Alive will follow the same general principle - run around finding and collecting dinosaurs in a location based augmented reality game. Don't worry, they won't bite.

Jurassic World: Alive players will collect all sorts of these prehistoric creatures by finding them and collecting them with an in-game drone. They extract their DNA and sort of a mix and match, to get the one capable of wreaking most havoc around it.

Players can then take their Jurassic World: Alive creations to the arena and see how they fare against other players. We're not sure as of yet what the exact matchmaking mechanics is, but it's safe to say that the game will mimic most Pokemon GO aspects. After all, Pokemon GO does seem to refuse to run out of steam.

Ludia CEO Alex Thabet said that the company aimed to let players "explore and connect with like  minded players while building and interacting with these powerful creatures." He says the team went for full immersion in the world, but at the moment, there's a million an one goofy thing I'm thinking about.

The game's launch coincides with the launch of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom movie and will hit Apple's App Store and Google Play when it launches "just ahead" of the movie release. The movie launches on 22 June 2018, so you can expect Jurassic World: Alive to be well alive and kicking by then.

We should know more in the following days, so you may want to stay tuned.
