Jurassic World Evolution 2 Announcement Trailer
Jurassic World Evolution 2 takes place immediately following the events of the film Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Players are tasked with building and maintaining a fully functional dinosaur park. Jeff Goldblum and Bryce Dallas Howard will also reprise their respective film roles as Dr. Ian Malcom and Claire Dearing as voiced characters in the game.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 marks the first time in the franchise that players will be able to build their parks outside of Muertes Archipelago. There are a number of new biomes to explore, including sweltering deserts and dense forests. New environments means new challenges for players to overcome as well.
There are more than 75 prehistoric species to care for in Jurassic World Evolution 2, including marine and flying reptiles that were requested by the community. Each dinosaur and creature under your care will exhibit different behaviors and are said to “react intelligently to the world around them.” Life, uh, finds a way, right?
There will be four game modes available in Jurassic World Evolution 2. In Campaign mode, players will construct enclosures and attempt to care for prehistoric creatures as the game’s original Jurassic World story unfolds. Sandbox mode is available for players looking for a bit more creative freedom when making their parks. Challenge mode ups the difficulty for players looking for a challenge. Finally, there’s Chaos Theory mode, which seems to stray from the other modes by offering players a chance to change the course of events during re-imagined moments from the Jurassic World films.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 will launch for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC in late 2021. No release date has been specified, but we will be sure to stay on top of new details as they emerge. Stay tuned for more updates.
