Announced during Microsoft’s pre-Gamescom briefing, Jurassic World Evolution will let players build their very own deadly theme parks.

The game is being created by the developers behind the space exploration sim Elite Dangerous, Frontier Developments, and will be based around the island from the 2015 movie. That means bioengineering new kinds of deadly prehistoric creatures, managing facilities and personnel, and trying not to get your attendees killed.


“Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when ‘life finds a way,” said Frontier’s CCO, Jonny Watts, in a press release. If you haven’t played Elite Dangerous, you’ll better know the studio from the Planet Coaster series, so when it comes to management sims, the company knows what it’s doing.

The game is slated for summer of 2018 to coincide with the next movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
