Jurassic World Evolution Developer Diary Takes Control

By Rebecca Smith, 3 months ago
Since its announcement last summer, Jurassic World Evolution has shown us species profiles, famous faces, and even the occasional glimpse at some gameplay. Now, Frontier Developments takes a different direction with a new video series of developer diaries. The first welcomes us to the game's world, while the second tells us how best to take control of our own dinosaur park.

As players build their own dinosaur park, they'll need to take control of Las Cinco Muertes, otherwise known as The Five Deaths. The islands of Isla Matanceros, Muerta, Tacano, Pena, and Sorna make up a chain that can be found 200 miles southwest of Costa Rica. While here, players will receive missions to complete from three different divisions — entertainment, science, and security — all of which will need to be balanced if the park is to be successful. They'll also meet characters with whom they'll be familiar if they've since the Jurassic Park films, such as Dr. Ian Malcolm and Dr. Henry Wu, as well as a variety of new characters. The development team details all of these aspects in more depth in the first developer diary below.


In the second developer diary, the team details how players will learn to manage their park. The site already has a few buildings that will teach players the basic and give them their first contract, allowing them to pick a division on which to focus first. Not only will players manage their park from above, they'll be able to get hands on with the livestock too. Every little factor that players will need to think about is detailed in the second video below.


If you want to create your own dinosaur park, you'll be able to do so when the game is released next month on June 12th.
