Sometimes, the universe aligns just right. When Frontier revealed last year that it was working on a tie-in with a big 2018 movie, I hoped beyond hope that it was Jurassic World. Well, prayers answered. Planet Coaster and Elite Dangerous developer Frontier Developments has officially unveiled Jurassic World Evolution, an all-new park management sim set on Isla Nublar and the Muertes Archipelago.

Players will be able to build their own tourist destination packed with a menagerie of dinosaurs; constructing attractions, building containment and research facilities, and bioengineering new dinosaur breeds. Whatever you do in Jurassic World Evolution though, Frontier promises that “life finds a way.”

It seems to be a bit of a spiritual successor to Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, an under-rated PC management title that came out about a decade ago. With Frontier at the reins though we expect Jurassic World Evolution to have insane levels of customisation and player control. Planet Coaster really is so far ahead in this field that it's unparalleled, and marrying that talent to the Jurassic World franchise is a match made in heaven.

“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.”

Jurassic World Evolution will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Summer 2018, just in time to coincide with the cinematic launch of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
