Frontier Developments and In-House have revealed the release date for Jurassic World Evolution and given us our first look at some gameplay footage.
These include fulfilling contracts by collecting specific fossils from real-world dig sites and then using them to bioengineer a living dinosaur- in this case a Triceratops - and managing the day to day welfare of the specimens themselves, from creating specialised environments to making sure they’re held behind the correct fence.
We also get to see how players can take a more hands-on approach to running their park when the developers decide to move a carnivore into its own enclosure. While you’ll have the option to let the AI handle things, players can choose to take direct control of vehicles and tranquilizing duties themselves.
For PC users, the game features seamless transitioning between mouse and keyboard and a gamepad for greater control during these moments.
As well as the park’s buildings, dinosaurs themselves can be upgraded via genome modification to either make them stronger, live longer or be more resistant disease. This is done by filling in any gaps in a dinosaur’s DNA with some from a more modern source, such as a tree frog or crocodile.
Jurassic World Evolution is out 12 June on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. What did you think of the gameplay reveal? Let us know below.
