Jurassic World Alive is based on one of the world’s most recognized and iconic film franchises, Jurassic World, from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment. The game has expanded over time to feature iconic Jurassic World franchise moments, allowing players to connect in new immersive ways, including adding prehistoric creatures from the latest film installments like the Indominus Rex, Blue, Beta, and more into the game.

With Jurassic World Alive, gamers explore their cities to discover and collect DNA samples of various dinosaur species. Utilizing the game's advanced geo-location and AR capabilities, players can encounter and collect an amazing array of dinosaurs in their real-world surroundings. Players can also team up in guilds, engage in player vs. player battles, and connect with other players worldwide to take on powerful dinosaurs in raid battles. To celebrate the launch, players in Korea will receive DNA for the fan-favorite dinosaur, Beta, and unlock her right from the start. This is in addition to ongoing in-game events, in-game giveaways, and opportunities to be a part of a highly engaged gaming community.
