Frontier Developments is a popular studio that has a long history of producing great experiences. The team did wonders with Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster, so it's no surprise that the studio is tackling the challenges of a Jurassic Park game. Jurassic World Evolution is a park-building experience along the lines of titles like Cities: Skylines.
Unfortunately, the game launched to a lukewarm reception from customers and critics alike. The repetitive nature of Jurassic World Evolution was the main drawback. However, in an effort to improve the game, Frontier Developments is releasing a major update on September 13, 2018.
The free update adds a slew of new features like a "Challenge Mode", more sandbox options, more lighting options, new contracts, cameras, and much more. This might just be the biggest patch the game has received since launch. Challenge Mode makes the game even harder because you have less resources to play around with. The sandbox changes make it so you can increase the lifespan of dinosaurs and use other tricks.
Hopefully this upcoming update will bring players back and entice new ones to pick up the game. In our review, we stated that the title was a "spectacularly mundane park management" experience. Jurassic World Evolution is available for $59.99 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. It also runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X.
