Park-builder 'Jurassic World Evolution' gets release date and preorders on Xbox One

Today, Frontier Developments announced that Jurassic World Evolution is coming digitally to Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 on June 12, 2018. A physical release will follow on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on July 3. The release date coincides with the the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film.

Frontier Developments is a well-regarded studio which has a long history of producing amazing experiences like Elite: Dangerous. The studio did wonders with Planet Coaster so it's no surprise that the team is tackling the challenge of a Jurassic Park game. Jurassic World Evolution is a park-building experience along the lines of games like Cities: Skylines and looks rather unique.

Jurassic World Evolution gives players more control than an average building simulator because you can heavily modify the terrain by introducing lakes and other natural elements. We haven't seen this level of customization in a game for a while now.

The game also went up for preorder today on Xbox One and a host of other platforms. You can purchase the standard edition for $59.99 or the digital deluxe version for $64.99. The digital deluxe package contains five extra dinosaurs. Lastly, if you preorder before launch, you'll receive an exclusive helicopter skin and off-road vehicle skin. According to the listing for the game on the Microsoft Store, Jurassic World Evolution supports "4K" and "HDR" on Xbox One X.
