Jurassic World Evolution: A Game with More Teeth

Recommended Posts

In the early 2000's there was a great game known as Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis. You mae your own Jurassic Park, sort of like a Theme Park Manager game. It was and will always hold a special place in the Jurassic Park communitee (It's still being modded briliantly to this day).

Now here we are. A spiritual successor is here.

Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous developer Frontier Developments has announced Jurassic World Evolution, a new dinosaur-filled theme park sim.

It's due to launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in summer 2018. The movie franchise's next film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is due to be released next June.

Jurassic World Evolution will let you create and manage your own dinosaur theme park on Isla Nublar and its surrounding islands. You'll be able to bioengineer dinosaur breeds, build attractions, and maybe place toilets for people to be munched by dinos in.

"As long-time fans of the entire Jurassic series we're thrilled to be putting players in charge of their own Jurassic World," Frontier exec Jonny Watts said. "We're excited to bring over 15 years of management, simulation, and creature development expertise to a destination and franchise that remains an inspiration to us."

Who else better to do this than a team known for making Park Builder games? This has me more hyped than any game in the last few years with a couple of seconds of Trailer. Who else has wanted this? What would you like to see?

Well we got an update yesterday, and damn does it look beautiful.

Frontier wanted gamers to experience that “original Jurassic Park dream” that spurred John Hammond forward in the 1993 film. Players will be involved in all stages of the park’s development, starting with extracting the Dino-DNA from dig sites around the world and bio-engineering them to raising your dinosaurs from their eggs and into maturity.

Not only will gamers be instrumental in raising these creatures, but it will be up to the player how they run their park and what they will focus on as there are three paths to follow. Will you build your park for entertainment purposes? Maybe you’ll use it as a location to show off your security measures? Or maybe you’d rather focus on the science behind bringing dinosaurs back to life. You can also choose to balance all three.

Along with managing the park, gamers will experience numerous emergency situations, including illness that afflicts your real-life attractions to natural disasters and storms.

In-game assets and screenshots were also showed while the developers exposed details about Jurassic World Evolution, showing off the environments, as well as the dinosaurs that were made possible not only by the experienced Frontier team but also with a little help from Universal Studios sending them assets to build from as well.

Jurassic World Evolution will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One when it releases.

It looks amazing and sounds amazing. I'm still hyped. If you'd like to see the Livestream this was shown in, its down below.

I'm still holding hope that this weirdo will get represented someday:

Nothronychus. Basically a vegan cousin to the Tyrannosaur family. Evolved into a plant-eater to avoid catching diseases like Botulism from eating corpses. Has huge claws that make for a killer bitch-slap.

Also, where my feathered dinos at?!

There are some issues here and there (Sedate a dino and don't do anything to it, it'll die. No sleeping dino's. Similar dinosaurs have similar animations. Lack of decorations.) Still looks amazing and fun, so here's to Tuesday!
