WARNER BROS. INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT, TT GAMES, THE LEGO GROUP AND UNIVERSAL BRAND DEVELOPMENT INVITE PLAYERS ON AN EPIC MOBILE ADVENTURE INLEGO® JURASSIC WORLDTM ON iPHONE, iPAD, iPOD TOUCH & ANDROID DEVICES
All Four Jurassic Films in One Action-Packed Mobile Game, Available on the App Store and Google Play Today
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, The LEGO Group and Universal Brand Development today announced the release of LEGO ® Jurassic World™ for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices, available now on the App Store and Google Play. For the first time ever with a LEGO videogame, players can use Apple’s 3D Touch controls to enhance their experience.
The action-packed adventure game brings the excitement of all four Jurassic films to one mobile game for the first time, spanning more than two decades of epic films from Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment, including Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III and the recent box office blockbuster Jurassic World. Reimagined with TT Games’ signature LEGO humour, the thrilling adventure recreates unforgettable scenes and action sequences from the films, allowing fans to experience for themselves the franchise’s most memorable moments and the opportunity to fully explore the expansive grounds of Isla Nublar and Isla Sorna.
“We’re excited to bring the adventure of LEGO Jurassic World to mobile devices,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games. “From creating and playing as a dinosaur, to journeying through Isla Nublar and beyond, fans can now immerse themselves directly into the action of the iconic film franchise wherever and whenever they want.”
In LEGO Jurassic World, players can take on the roles of exciting Jurassic film characters, such as Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) and Dr. Wu (BD Wong), throughout 20 story levels on a mission to collect precious amber containing dinosaur DNA. Players can use the DNA to build their dino collection, mix their pieces to create an original species with the Dino Customiser by mixing and matching colour, body parts and abilities or fill the giant footsteps of the LEGO dinosaurs and actually play the game as the beasts themselves!
A little earlier today, Universal announced that Jurassic World will be getting a sequel and is scheduled to be released on June 22, 2018. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be returning as the stars of the movie while Steven Spielberg will again be the executive producer. Jurassic World opened in theaters last month and has become the third highest grossing movie all-time passing The Avengers.
LEGO also released some sets to go along with the movie but currently there is a shortage of inventory and a majority of them have been out of stock due to the popularity of the first movie. Although not guaranteed, it’s almost safe to say that we can assume that there will be LEGO Jurassic World 2 sets coming in 2018 as well.
With the popularity of Jurassic World in theaters, Ript Apparel has a new LEGO inspired t-shirt today with one featuring Chris Pratt’s character, Owen Grady, as well as his four Velociraptors, Blue, Charlie, Delta, and Echo. The shirt starts off at $11 it looks like it only comes in blue. If you’re a fan of LEGO and/or Jurassic World, this is a pretty cool shirt to pick up.
In my second review of the boxed LEGO Jurassic World sets, I have the Dilophosaurus Ambush (75916) which contains 248 pieces and retails for $29.99. The contents of the box includes two numbered bags, the Dilophosaurus bagged in separate pieces, two instruction booklets, a sticker sheet, an two loose clear half sphere domes. Again, this review will contain some spoilers.
I’ve finally had some time to watch Jurassic World in theaters and for my second review of the LEGO Jurassic World sets, first of the boxed sets, I have the Raptor Rampage (75917). The set consists of 324 pieces and retails for $49.99. One of the main complaints I’ve heard about the LEGO Jurassic World sets is because of the prices but keep in mind there are some large molds included in the set on top of it being a licensed theme. The box contains three numbered bags, two individually bagged raptors, two instruction booklets, and a sticker sheet.
Warning: There will be spoilers in the LEGO Jurassic World reviews so if you haven’t watched Jurassic World yet, I suggest skipping these posts. I feel it’s been ample time between the release of the movie and the time the reviews go up and I assume a majority of the readers have already seen the movie.
A few days ago, I finished the Jurassic Park III part of the LEGO Jurassic World video game and I finished uploading the VODs to YouTube. As part of the gameplay, I try to get the “True Survivor” status for each level and some of the minikits so I don’t have to go back and get it later. This playthrough is for the story mode only and I’ll go back to free play after I finish the Jurassic World part of the game. That part has been delayed a little because I haven’t had time to watch the movie yet so I don’t want any spoilers just yet. I do stream the game on Twitch so if you want to know when I go live, make sure you hit follow button on Twitch.
