Frontier Expo 2017: First sighting of Jurassic World Evolution

No, it’s not an MMO. Boy oh boy do I wish it were! You know that little old movie franchise, Jurassic Park? If you’ve ever thought you could run a dino-filled establishment better than those who tried in on-screen, you’ll be getting your chance with Jurassic World Evolution. The sim game was shown off at Frontier Expo 2017 and lets players move beyond the movies.

Jurassic World Evolution will allow players to design their own dinosaur parks, with three different development paths to pursue. Those who want to create a bustling tourist attraction (and hope tourists don’t become dinner) will focus on Entertainment. Players who prefer to focus on improving military and security applications of dinosaurs will go for Security. And for those enthusiasts who just want to understand more about dinosaurs, there’s the Science path.

Players can expand their operations to different islands, each with its own challenges and situations. What will you do when an emergency arises? What if dinos decide to propagate themselves? Find out when Jurassic World Evolution launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC summer of 2018. Until then, enjoy this trailer and a few screenshots.

Science path, here I come!

I hear you. I don’t play ARK ‘correctly’. I slink around the islands in Jane Goodall mode and simply watch the dinos interact, fight, live, and die. And take some super-resolution ANSEL pictures to remember them by ;)

Was really hoping they would show some of the park building stuff :(

But the level of detail on everything considering in theory you will be looking down from a drone should look amazing.

“No, it’s not an MMO.” Maybe I’m missing something but I don’t understand why this is being covered by MassivelyOP?

Hi.. welcome to all of 2017… and probably some of 2016.

Where Massively has been covering games, some of which, resemble MMOs.

But how does this resemble an MMO? I’ve been reading this site for a good two years, if not longer, and can’t remember the last time they covered an upcoming single player game like this one.

You must miss a lot of articles here then.

Pretty much any article about a Blizzard game that isnt WoW, which this site covers frequently, isnt an MMO

articles like this:

Facebook announces $199 Oculus Go, drops core Oculus bundle to $399 permanently

not mmo related

Any article about MOBAs, and many would even question if survival games are MMO’s, such as Osiris Zero Dawn.

Like I said. For pretty much all of 2017, and maybe even 2016… this site has been a “mostly mmo” gaming site. This isnt something new.

Yeah it has been mostly a multiplayer site with a strong focus on MMOs with a dabble of tech that could impact mmos since AOL murdered massively and joystiq.

I’m not sure if you’re being deliberately argumentative but, again, I don’t remember them covering single player games here. I’m not taking about MOBAS which still fit into the purview of this site covering multiplayer games or equipment which people can use to take part in multiplayer games or games that aren’t necessarily “massive” but still have multiplayer elements such as Conan Exiles; I’m saying that I don’t recall this site covering single player titles such as Jurassic World Evolution.

I mean, if there’s a review of The Evil Within 2 on here then I’ll happily read it as I’m considering purchasing it, but I thought I’d have to go to a more standard gaming site for that.

Don’t bother with the development paths…you know we’re all just going to build a 50 x 50 enclosure with one T-rex and a hundred tourists.

Sounds like ARK is making an impact. :)
Hey I will probably give this a try, I’m a dino-nut. Can’t deny it.

I was so excited when Ark took off because I was hoping for another dinosaur fad/trend. :D

This zombie trend is going on a bit too long xD
