Frontier Developments, along with Universal, has finally launched a dinosaur park builder, much like the popular Sim City but with dinosaurs, of course.
Jurassic World Evolution puts you in charge of operations of Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. Players will be able to construct attractions, containment and research facilities, and more, as you build your very own Jurassic World. You will also be able to bio-engineer new dinosaur species that think, feel, and react to the world around them. Chief Creative Officer, Jonny Watts had this to say about Jurassic World Evolution:
“Jurassic World Evolution immerses players and fans of the movies in the Jurassic World universe. With masses of rich franchise lore, iconic characters, incredible living dinosaurs and islands you can reshape and construct however you choose, Jurassic World Evolution brings the dream of building and running your own Isla Nublar to life. This is YOUR Jurassic World, and we can’t wait to see what players create.”
Jurassic World Evolution also features the talented Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcom, who guides players through moral choices and tactical decisions. Finally, I can be mentored by Jeff Goldblum! Joining him is Bryce Dallas Howard as operations manager Claire Dearing and B.D. Wong as everyone’s favorite geneticist Dr. Henry Wu.
Jurassic World Evolution will also be getting a free content update on June 22, introducing everyone to Dr. Wu’s most fearsome creation, the Indoraptor. The content update will also feature more dinosaurs from the new movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World Evolution is available to download for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and on PC via Steam. A physical release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be available July 3.
