Jurassic Park Evolution 2 makes its debut at Summer Game Fest

Jurassic Park Evolution 2 was introduced today during the Summer Game Fest livestream. Jeff Goldblum, who co-starred in the Jurassic Park films, announced the sequel to the dinosaur management simulation game Jurassic Park Evolution.

At the Summer Game Fest, we only saw a cinematic trailer with a voice-over from Goldblum, so no game content was actually shared. However, the Steam page for Jurassic Park Evolution 2 has given us more information on what the game entails.

The game takes place after the Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom movie and players must now create a new park to conserve, control, and contain dinosaurs. Players will be working alongside characters from the Jurassic Park universe such as Dr. Ian Malcolm and Claire Dearing. The game will include over 75 species of dinosaurs, including the much-requested flying and aquatic dinosaurs.

The game will also have the Chaos Theory game mode. This will allow players to play through iconic moments in the Jurassic Park universe with a twist on the expectations. Players will have to think on their feet during these famous scenes, which will have unpredictable outcomes.

As with the first game, Jurassic Park Evolution 2 is produced by Frontier Developments, which has created a name for itself in the management genre with games like the RollerCoaster Tycoon and the Planet Zoo series.

Currently, there is no release date for Jurassic Park Evolution 2, only a promise that it will be released this year.

Everything we know about Summer Game Fest 2022

With E3 being canceled this year, and many unsure if it will ever return, the summer was in danger of being a wild west of every publisher and developer creating their own events and announcements with no rhyme or reason. For all the faults with it, E3 at least organized all the major players in the gaming space into some sort of order that everyone -- players and press -- could keep track of and plan around based on their interests.

In the vacuum left by that iconic summer event full of press conferences, Geoff Keighley has stepped up in the past few years to introduce a new system to maintain order during the summer announcements.

Usually, there’s an established rhythm to the video game industry. Fall, for instance, tends to be when publishers release their biggest games to pump up their holiday sales. Summer, on the other hand, has always been about hype thanks in no small part to E3, the Super Bowl of video game showcases. So when the Entertainment Software Association canceled E3 2022, it left a vacuum in the usual hype cycle. Companies were going to have all these exciting games to show, but no spotlight to shine them under. E3 wasn’t going to happen, but the industry wouldn’t just let the summer marketing potential fly by.

As a result, this summer is a lot more chaotic than previous ones. Big reveal streams and press conferences that would usually take place in a tight four-day span have spun out into their own independent events. Summer Games Fest, Microsoft + Bethesda Showcase, Ubisoft Forward, Nintendo Direct, Square Enix Presents … you’re going to need a roadmap to navigate it all.
