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.

Summer Game Fest’s show-stealer isn’t the game you’re expecting

There was no shortage of exciting games at this year's Summer Game Fest. Geoff Keighley's annual live stream featured excellent trailers from games like Final Fantasy VII Rebirth and Sonic Superstars. As part of that event, Keighley also hosted a two-day in-person event where press and content creators got to go hands-on with some of the games featured during the showcase and this year's Day of the Devs stream. Digital Trends was on hand for the event, and we demoed a wealth of high-profile games, from Alan Wake 2 to Mortal Kombat 1.

The game that's stuck out most so far, though, perhaps isn't the one you're expecting: Cocoon.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 officially has a release date. During the Summer Game Fest, Insomniac Games revealed that the game is scheduled to release on October 20 as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. The stream also featured a few new details about the game, including new information about its villains.

Spider-Man 2 recently appeared at the May 2023 PlayStation Showcase, so it wasn't surprising that there wasn't any new footage at the Summer Game Fest. However, Insomniac presented new concept art, including one with Peter Parker and Miles Morales fighting side by side and another with the two Spider-Mans fighting Venom.

Organized by Game Awards creator Geoff Keighley, Summer Game Fest essentially acts as a modern replacement for E3. It's a series of live streams and in-person events that loosely mimic the idea of a standard E3 season, giving gaming fans plenty of news to chew on. It all starts with the Summer Game Fest Kickoff stream today, where Keighley will showcase tons of new games from most of gaming's biggest players.
