A New ‘Jurassic World’ Video Game Is Coming And It Looks Epic

"Life finds a way"

If you've ever watched any of the Jurassic Park films, including 2015's belated fourth entry in the series, and thought you'd be better than the gang handling dinosaurs, then this is the game for you. Frontier Developments has released a trailer for Jurassic World Evolution that looks like Sim City meets Age of Empires, but with dinosaurs.

Jurassic World Evolution will allow players to take control of the legendary park and run it the way they want, but they must be ready to respond to any outbreaks or breaches.

According to Frontier's website, you're able to create the attractions, containment and research facilities on Isla Nublar, as well as the other surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. It adds: "Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when life finds a way.'"

In a statement, Frontier's Chief Creative Officer, Jonny Watts, says: "As long-time fans of the entire Jurassic series we're thrilled to be putting players in charge of their own Jurassic World.

"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."

The game is scheduled to be released next summer, but there's no word on whether it will be before or after the June premiere of the next instalment of the franchise Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. But it will available on Playstation, Xbox and PC.

Fans are, understandably, very excited.

The follow-up to Jurassic World will again star Chris Pratt, but he'll be joined by Jeff Goldblum, who played the iconic chaos theorist Dr Ian Malcolm in both the original 1993 film and its 1997 sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

Little is known about the 2018 movie thus far, but writer Colin Trevorrow told El Mundo: "The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons."

He also announced earlier this year that the T-Rex from the first film will be returning, as well as the last surviving raptor from the most recent film.
