Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Park building videogame ‘Jurassic World: Evolution’ announced! PC, Xbox One, and PS4 – Summer 2018

The much anticipated and long overdue announcement has finally come – there is a full AAA budget Jurassic World video game in development! Announced during the Xbox conference at Gamescom, ‘Jurassic World Evolution’ made its debut with a fantastic, full CG trailer. Check out the trailer below, and read on for every detail we know!

“Create your own Jurassic World in Jurassic World Evolution. Coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Summer 2018.

Build your own Jurassic World, bioengineer new dinosaur breeds, and construct attractions, containment and research facilities. Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when β€˜life finds a way.’”

Jurassic World Evolution is a park building simulator, much similar to the fan favorite ‘Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis’ which was released in 2003. Evolution is being created by the longstanding Frontier Developments, the studio behind Zoo Tycoon, Rollercoaster Tycoon, and much more! While little is known about the game itself, it is fair to assume it will feature in depth park management, creation, and dinosaur containment scenarios. In fact, the end of the trailer seems to hint at a storm system threatening the park, something Operation Genesis was known for!

If you are unfamiliar with park building games, check out the footage below from Jurassic Park Operation Genesis, which should give a fair idea of what’s to come.

Expect many dinosaurs and features in Jurassic World Evolution – and while it has yet to be said officially, expect many tie ins to the upcoming sequel Fallen Kingdom which also releases Summer 2018! Perhaps the volcano will play a part?

The known dinosaurs featured in ‘Evolution’ include Tyrannosaurus Rex, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Apatosaurus and Triceratops – expect many, many more!

You can follow Jurassic World Evolution on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and the official website.

  1. Finally. It’s been forever since we’ve had a good console JP game. This will most definitely be an instant buy.

  2. Well I was hoping for an open world survival game, but this is definitely my second option! Hopefully the ‘bioengineer new dino breeds’ isnt a necessary part, as id want the originals species – but if its anywhere near as good as Operation Genisis then i’ll be happy!

    Is this the game that has been rumoured for a while though? I thought it had a different title and developer?

  3. I saw this trailer out of the blue on my YouTube watch list and I’m on the edge of tears here. Finally a JP game that looks worthy of buying since operation genesis!

  4. Lmao I commented just yesterday on that December post speculating about a new game and said “So I guess this isn’t happening…” So awesome to be proven wrong πŸ™‚

  5. Ladies and Gentlemen…our prayers have been answered.

    Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis is getting a remake.

    And it…looks…AMAZING!!!!!

  6. I can’t believe that we’re finally getting an official Jurassic World game!!! Well basically I play Jurassic World The Game which is kinda official. And tbh I never actually played Jurassic Park Operation Genesis, but now I get the opportunity to play a much more modern version which is a sequel of JPOG!!! I hope we get to control the dinosaurs as well as controlling some humans and vehicles. And I’m definitely hoping for dinosaur fights!!!πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  7. I’m so incredibly excited about this game next year! This is going to be a lot of fun, like it was with “Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis!” Even though it comes out on PC – but does anyone know if the game will come out on a Mac?

  8. This is so exciting! I hope it gives the option to rebuild the park as it was in the first movie. Or a mode where you are in control of the park in the JP movie and can adjust your responses to see how well you can avoid the disaster!
