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. Read the rest of this entry »

Wot I Think: Jurassic World Evolution

Jurassic World Evolution

I’m not proud to admit that I’ve forced dinosaurs to fight to the death in Jurassic World Evolution. What could possibly lead me to do something so horrible to these wonders of science-fiction? Capitalism, of course. I was being paid, and I needed to buy an ugly fast food restaurant. Every ‘Dino Bite’ that my guests have snacked on has been stained with Velociraptor blood. That’s my guarantee.

My sadness and guilt are especially profound because the dinosaurs are one of the few bright spots in this otherwise humdrum theme park management game.

Jurassic Park welcomed to Rocket League in next DLC

It’s dino a go-go in the ludosphere lately as cross-medium opportunities hatch from the impending launch of the new talkie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Frontier’s Jurassic World Evolution will have us manage a dinopark, and now Rocket League has declared its own allegiance to humanity’s former steeds. New paid DLC later this month will add a Jurassic Park jeep as a sportscar, and yeah yeah whatever I know, but the important thing is: it’ll let us celebrate goals with a fiery Tyrannosaurus rex’s head rearing from between the posts and roaring. Synergise my brand awareness real good. Read the rest of this entry »

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 encourage you to feed guests to the ‘talent’ – it makes for a doozy of a TripAdvisor write up – but that it’s done with just three mouse clicks suggests they know exactly what they are making.

Jurassic World Evolution hatches on June 12th

After building rollercoasters in Planet Coaster, the next park management game from Frontier Developments will focus on the wildest ride of all: life. Today they announced that Jurassic World Evolution will launch on June 12, days after the next movie comes out. Evolution will have players build their own tropical dinoparks, trying to keep tourists happy so your business turns a profit while keeping dinosaurs happy so they don’t break out and devour tourists. Life, I’m sure Jeff Goldblum will remind us in his role as the in-game advisor, finds a way. For now, have a watch of 20 minutes of gameplay: Read the rest of this entry »

Jurassic World Evolution is a park-builder from Planet Coaster devs

21jurassicworld1

The next theme park management game from Planet Coaster studio Frontier Developments will focus on something even scarier than a triple corkscrew: dinosaurs. Last night Frontier announced Jurassic World Evolution [official site], which will put us in charge of the cinematic theme park franchise that surely should have been sued into oblivion by now. We’ll get to build a park, bioengineer new dinosaurs, and watch everything go pear-shaped when they get bored. Remember to invite two plucky children, including at least one nerd, to help save the day. Read the rest of this entry »

Roar! LEGO Jurassic World Stomping Around PC

Jurassic World is now stomping around cinemas, and LEGO Jurassic World [official site] is stomping around PC too (though our review will be roaring through here later). For those who don’t know, it’s a kid-friendly amalgamation of Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III, and the most recent Jurassic World. (You knew it was going to be there. Just look at the name! So telling.) And, oh look — a trailer after the cut!

Lego Jurassic World Wants You To Be The Dinos

Being bitten by a Lego T-Rex is like standing on one of those tiny bricks. Avoid.

Knowing full well that playing through a Lego version of Jurassic World isn’t actually the most exciting part of Lego Jurassic World [official site], Travellers Tales has front loaded the latest trailer with one of the most iconic scenes from Jurassic Park. The whole film, along with The Lost World, Jurassic Park III and, yes, Jurassic World, are recreated in miniature plastic for you to explore and build when the game launches on June 12th. That’s the same day Jurassic World comes to cinemas, no doubt to better accommodate any opening night impulse purchases.
