Revealed during Xbox’s Gamescom Press Event, Jurassic World Evolution will be releasing on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next Summer 2018. According to the trailer, players will be able to build their own Jurassic Park style theme park, create dinosaurs, and deal with the very very real possibility that things are going to go horribly wrong — like it always does.

The trailer — notably running on pre-rendered footage — accentuates this point with T-Rexs charging fences, attacking bioengineers. The game will be developed by Frontier Developments — UK-based developers that have a strong history of theme-park development games, notably ListWindsRollerCoaster TycoonElite, and Planet Coaster.

Jurassic World Evolution is without a doubt being released to coincide with the theatrical release of the Jurassic World sequelJurassic World: Fallen Kingdom coming June 22, 2018 in the United States. With that said, Microsoft and Frontier Developments aren’t able to put a definitive date on the game, keeping it with Summer 2018.

As mentioned above, Jurassic World Evolution will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Summer 2018. Make sure to check out the official Gamescom trailer below.
