Jurassic World Evolution stomps out today

Frontier's dinopark-building management sim Jurassic World Evolution launched this morning, I'll remind you in case the waves of E3 announcements mean you forget games can even come out in 2018. It's a bit disappointing, our Jurassic World Evolution review will tell you, especially in comparison to Frontier's Planet Coaster, but you might still fancy it? It does, at the very least, have pretty dinosaurs.

Feature: Where's the goat?

Video: Watch dino fights and raptor escapes in Jurassic World Evolution

Remember the bit in Jurassic Park where John Hammond airlifts a live Ceratosaurus into the food court? No? That’s because it didn’t happen, which was a huge failing of imagination on Spielberg’s part. Hammond was all about show business, after all, and business doesn’t come showier than a dinosaur eating tourists as they exit a burger joint. Obviously, the makers of Jurassic World Evolution don’t…

Roar! Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn Stomps Out

If you want to shoot dinosaurs in their extinct faces, your interests are catered to now more than ever. With Ark: Survival Evolved, The Hunter: Primal, The Stomping Land, Orion: Prelude, Primal Carnage: Extinction, Crytek's new tech demo, and more, it's chockablockasauraus out there. If dinogames could be a bit better (or not a total shambles, in some cases) that'd be nice. Now the Carnivores…

Fight And Ride Dinosaurs In Ark: Survival Evolved

At first glance Ark: Survival Evolved [official site] looks like another online, open-world survival game. That’s because it is. But it's also a game in which you can capture, train and ride dinosaurs. And then fight other dinosaurs. How are there not more games around that allow you to do this? Ark was announced yesterday by newcomers Studio Wildcard, who promise that it will include…

Watch Crytek’s Back To Dinosaur Island VR Demo

At this year's GDC, Crytek demonstrated new features of the updated CryEngine. One of their demos was Back To Dinosaur Island, a VR demo designed for use with the Oculus Rift Crescent Bay prototype. The demo was playable - as much as it's playable - on the show floor during GDC, but on the off chance that you weren't there or couldn't strap a VR…

LEGO Duo: Avengers & Jurassic World Announced

The simultaneous announcement of two new LEGO games makes me suddenly pained that they don't let you mix-and-match parts from different games in the way one can with real LEGO [possibly the only capitalised brand name I'll respect -ed.]. Obviously I'll want to take the Black Widow from LEGO Marvel's Avengers over into LEGO Jurassic World to zap raptors with her Widow's Sting, and yes…

Clever Girl, The Hunter: Primal Is Out For You

Preservation efforts? A park to contain all the beauties of the prehistoric world? Nah. We'll just shoot 'em all. Freshly arrived in the Early Access folder, The Hunter: Primal errs on the meaner side of the equation, the side that involves gore and goop and other things that could possibly drip from dinosaur-y insides. Here, you play as a hunter, a bipedal predator who must…

Cretaceous! Primal Carnage: Extinction Announced

Good news, dinosaur fans! Soon you'll be able to murder dinosaurs or murder people who want to murder dinosaurs, depending on quite how you feel about ancient reptiles reborn in the modern era, better than ever. Primal Carnage was already one of the finer dinosaur multiplayer FPSs around, and next month will bring Primal Carnage: Extinction - a sequel that's really a remake. Bad news,…

Tricera-plops: The Stomping Land Removed From Sale

The last time we heard anything from multiplayer dino survival game The Stomping Land it wasn't a stomp at all. It wasn't a roar or a chomp, it was a statement about a change of engine. The dinos were gearing up for a switch to Unreal Engine 4, or so the developer reckoned, but it looks like the whole affair has come to a standstill.…

DinoZ: Surviving And Thriving In The Stomping Land

The Stomping Land sprinted into my heart--much like Jeff Goldblum fleeing the T-Rex in Jurassic Park--and I've been anxiously awaiting more news from what appears to be DayZ with dinosaurs. The silence has been broken! Not hugely. Not like the roar of a T-Rex with a bellyful of goat, but more like the squirty trill of the dilophosaurus*. The developers have been updating their site…

A Jurassic Lark: The Stomping Land Trailer

You know me. You know I love games with dinosaurs. I think I was born in the wrong time period. I'm more of a late-period cretaceous type of guy. Don't believe what those "scientists" would have you believe. People and dinosaurs did live at the same time, as evidenced by the totally fact-based multiplayer dino-hunting game, The Stomping Land. See those hunters? See those dinos?…

The Best Idea: Dinosaurs On A Spaceship

My favorite thing about Jurassic Park was how dinosaurs always somehow managed to end up in the absolute worst places. Right on the brink of a gigantic, car-devouring abyss? Yep. In a cramped generator room where everyone could've sworn they left the rest of Samuel L Jackson? Naturally. Oh, and how about the kitchen? I was half expecting to find raptors dressed in full chef regalia…

Fan’s Folly: Jurassic Park: Aftermath

Here's how much I love Jurassic Park: back in the Dextrassic period (January 10th 2007 to August 28th 2011), I lived with internet-famous John Walker and a bunch of other handsome people. We all shared a cat. The antics of that cat have been well documented in the pages of The Cat Magazine, but there's one thing John doesn't mention in all his articles about…

Sunder Lizards: Primal Carnage Beta Open

Dinosaurs versus heavily armed people. It's a tale as old as time, with a clear artistic through line that begins in the cave paintings of Mann-Shüt, which depicted heroic cavefolk firing rocks at armies of marauding velociraptors, and ends with Primal Carnage. It's an online PvP game that allows players to bite their enemies in half, although presumably only if they choose to be a…

Dino Might: Orion Gets A Release Date, Trailer

Co-operative, open-world sci-fi dinosaur hunting game Orion: Dino Beatdown is strapping into its jetpacks for an April the 20th release date. After watching the trailer below I just hopped onto Google Calendar and made sure I had nothing planned for that day - just some lump thing in my brain needed removal on that day. I soon got rid of that. What smells of burning,…

Jurassic Jetpacks – ORION: Dino Beatdown

I'm in two minds about this multiplayer shooter from the ORION: Prelude team that somehow isn't ORION: Prelude. Is ORION: Dino Beatdown a brilliant name for a game, or is it a horrible name for anything? One thing I do know, despite the laudable presence of dinosaurs and jetpacks, I'd be a lot happier if the dinosaurs were actually using the jetpacks. As it is,…

Double The Dinosaurs: Orion Prelude Grows

I really wish Orion: Prelude would hurry up. I feel like we've been posting about it for six hundred years. It's actually only been about eight months, making me massively unfair. But still. The exciting news today? TWICE AS MANY DINOSAURS! Spiral's FPS multiplayer will now include the T-Rex, raptor, rham-phorynchus (as everyone was expecting), stegosaurus, argentinosaurus, and crowd favourite, triceratops. There's pictures of them…

DINOFIGHT! New Primal Carnage Footage

Primal Carnage, the dinosaurs versus humans multiplayer project from independent developers Lukewarm Media, has released some awesome new footage. It's accompanied by quite a change - the team has switched from Ungine to the Unreal Development Kit, and what was already looking spectacular now looks super-spectacular. Below, along with lots of new details and screenshots, is an epic dino-fight, in realtime in-game UDK footage. I…
