Known as 'Jurassic World Alive', the new app - which is slated to be coming to iOS and Android devices soon - will allow players to build a collection of dinosaurs, create their own creatures using DNA and fight against other dinosaurs, IGN reported.

In a tweet on the official 'Jurassic World Alive' Twitter page, a video was posted of the game with the caption: "@JWorldAlive is bringing your favorite dinosaurs to LIFE this Spring! Pre-register at http://smarturl.it/jurassicwordalive ... and receive an in-game incubator at launch! #JurassicWorldAlive (sic)"

The game is being described as a map-based game - similar to the hit 'Pokemon Go' game - but users do not need to leave their house in order to capture the different dinosaurs.

Chris Heatherly, Universal's executive VP of games, said: "There's definitely that element of discovery, but we wanted to make it a little more flexible and also give you something to do at home."

The game is currently being developed by Montreal-based studio Ludio - who previously developed the 2012 'Jurassic Park Builder' and the 2015 'Jurassic World: The Game'.

Not much is known about a release date but fans of the dino-franchise can expect to see more of the deadly creatures with release of the fifth movie in the hit franchise 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' which is slated to hit cinemas this year.
