Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous developer Frontier Developments are holding their Frontier Expo this weekend, and during the event premiered the first in-game footage of Jurassic World Evolution. The dinosaur theme-park builder is set to release in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and was originally debuted earlier this year at Gamescom 2017.
The two minute video shows off several different dinosaurs, and is entirely comprised of in-game footage. It’s looking really impressive so far, and the developer will have even more time to create a spectacle before the park building game releases in 2018.
Take your first look at Jurassic World Evolution gameplay below:
“As long-time fans of the entire Jurassic series we’re thrilled to be putting players in charge of their own Jurassic World,” said Frontier’s Chief Creative Officer, Jonny Watts. “We’re excited to bring over fifteen years of management, simulation, and creature development expertise to a destination and franchise that remains an inspiration to us.”
Here’s how developer Frontier Developments describes their upcoming title:
Jurassic World Evolution evolves players’ relationship with the Jurassic World film franchise, placing them in control of operations on the legendary island of Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. Players will build their own Jurassic World as they bioengineer new dinosaur breeds and construct attractions, containment and research facilities. Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when ‘life finds a way.’
Jurassic World Evolution is coming in the summer of 2018 to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
