Jurassic Park followers, excellent news: We are lastly getting a brand new sport set within the well-known universe that isn’t a park builder.
Tonight, throughout the 2023 Game Awards, we received our first trailer at Jurassic Park: Survival, an upcoming first-person motion survival sport that includes a brand new character who appears to be trapped on the unique island from the primary film. And she’s trapped on the island after all of the dinosaurs have escaped. Uh oh!
Let me be clear: I like the Jurassic Park theme park builders. I’ve sunk so many hours into all of them, even Operation Genesis. But I’ve lengthy needed an enormous, AAA first-person motion sport set on this universe. And now, it appears, I’m lastly getting what I needed.
In the trailer, which incorporates a small quantity of gameplay within the center, a younger lady is operating round terrified (understandably so) throughout the unique Isla Nublar, escaping well-known dinos like the huge T-Rex. Is the trailer a bit fan servivce-y, that includes well-known places and moments from the primary movie? Sure. But I’m too excited to care that a lot.
Interestingly, Jurassic Park: Survival shares its identify with a never-released motion sport from Konami that was going to be set on a secret third island and would have tied in with the then-newly launched Jurassic Park III. The sport was canned in July 2001. I doubt this new sport has something to do with that canceled title, however I additionally wouldn’t be stunned if the identify was picked to straight reference that never-released PS2-era Jurassic Park sport as many followers nonetheless discuss it to this present day.
Jurassic Park: Survival doesn’t have a launch date. It will likely be launched, finally, on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
