UNIVERSAL AND EARPLAY ANNOUNCE PREMIUM INTERACTIVE AUDIO ADVENTURE JURASSIC WORLD
REVEALED™ FOR AMAZON ALEXA

Free and premium chapters of the story are available now on Alexa-enabled devices
when players request: "Alexa, visit Jurassic World"

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom™ arrives in theaters on Friday

Universal City, Calif. – June 22, 2018 - Universal and Earplay, a leading developer
of interactive audio stories, today announced the release of premium chapters in
Jurassic World Revealed, an interactive audio adventure available on Alexa-enabled
devices. With the help of fictional podcaster Janet Best, players participate in an
original story by making choices with their voice as they travel to Isla Nublar. On
the daring investigative journey, they’ll attempt to report on the fate of the
dinosaurs as the island's dormant volcano roars to life.

Jurassic World Revealed features a parallel story that is set during the events of
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, opening in theaters on Friday. Produced by
Universal and Earplay, the six-chapter voice-operated entertainment experience
begins when players say, "Alexa, visit Jurassic World.” Players must listen,
observe, and interact with Jurassic World characters, alongside co-producer Janet,
in order to get the scoop for their podcast.

"As players make choices in and around them through our high-quality audio
experience, we give the audience a different window into the events happening on
Isla Nublar," said Dave Grossman, Earplay Chief Creative Officer. "We’ve partnered
closely with Universal to maintain an authentic Jurassic World tone, one that stays
true to the franchise and allows fans deeper inside this universe.”

Jurassic World Revealed now lets users access the first chapter for free, with the
option to purchase the additional five premium chapters for $3.99 for a limited
time. Starting June 29th, the premium content will be available for $4.99.

"With Jurassic World Revealed, we put interactive storytelling into the hands of
fans who want the opportunity to choose where to take their Jurassic World
adventure,” said Chris Heatherly, Executive Vice President of Games and Digital
Platforms, Universal Brand Development. “Earplay has established itself as a leader
in the emerging voice-operated entertainment space, and this expertise has played a
key role in developing an experience that will surpass the expectations of Jurassic
World fans."

“Working with an innovative partner like Universal and a beloved story franchise
like Jurassic World is the perfect opportunity to showcase the quality and scale
that Earplay can achieve with premium long-form interactive audio," said Jon Myers,
Earplay CEO.
