This summer, as a tie-in to the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, we’re getting the new video game Jurassic World Evolution. Frontier Developments, the folks behind the RollerCoaster Tycoon games, are handling this one, and it will let you build your own dinosaur amusement park. You’ll get to be your very own John Hammond, and everything worked out perfectly for him and his guests!
Frontier has now released a new Jurassic World Evolution trailer featuring Jeff Goldblum, who informs us that his character Dr. Ian Malcolm will be our guide as we put together our ill-conceived abominations against god and man. Why Malcolm, who never thought Jurassic Park was a good idea, is the right guide for this kind of game is beyond me, but I’m not going to argue when we’re getting more Goldblum. Additionally, Goldblum tells us that this game gets “10 out of 10 Goldblums”, and there really isn’t a higher standard in gaming. Sorry, all other video game metrics. We’re on the Goldblum system now.
Check out the Jurassic World Evolution trailer below. The game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime this summer. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens June 22nd.
Here’s the synopsis for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom:
It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
