Jurassic World Evolution 2 will be coming out on 9th November 2021 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 picks up after the events of the most recent Jurassic World film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in which dinosaurs escaped captivity and are now running around all over the world. Perfect time to create a new theme park, then?
The game features an original new campaign with expanded construction options, more than 75 dinosaurs and other prehistoric species to feature in your park, and more customisation options.
There’s also a new ‘Chaos Theory’ mode that lets you play through ‘what if?’ scenarios set throughout the narrative of the film franchise. It’s something that Frontier has already dabbled with through one of the expansion packs for the first game, taking us back to the aftermath of the first film.
Jurassic World Evolution was a big hit for Frontier, blending their theme park management expertise with the compelling world of Jurassic Evolution. Everyone loves dinosaurs, after all! Since that original release, Frontier added a bunch of narrative expansions, fleshing out the game world, and even doing a bit of a ‘what if?’ DLC that stepped back to just after the original Jurassic Park film and asked what would have happened if they’d taken a different route and tried to save the park.
In our Jurassic World Evolution review, we said:
“Business management games don’t come much cooler than Jurassic World Evolution, and as subject matter goes it has done the the franchise proud. The dinosaurs look fantastic, the park building is easy and coherent, and the ensuing chaos when it goes a little bit off the rails can be frantic and enthralling. It’s pacing where the game struggles a little, with a few too many sedentary moments stretching your patience, but you’re not likely to get any closer to building your own park packed with once extinct animals than this.”
