Frontier, the developer behind the sublime Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster has new sim in the works. Jurassic World Evolution is a theme park sim, but instead of ferris wheels you have Triceratops, and instead of worrying about guests getting sick, you have to worry about guests getting eaten by a freaking T-Rex.
Jurassic World Evolution puts players in control of operations on the island of Isla Nublar, as featured in the original Jurassic Park. The goal is to build new attractions, bioengineer new dinosaur breeds, and figure out the best way to keep said dinosaurs away from paying punters. “Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges will arise when ‘life finds a way,'” says Microsoft.
Further details are thin on the ground, but there is a release date of “Summer 2018,” which just so happens to be when the next film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is due to be released.
“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 says. “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.”
