Jurassic World Evolution : trailer et premier patch

Coïncidant à peu près avec la sortie en salle du film, au début du mois, l’adaptation en jeu de gestion de Jurassic World est donc arrivée sur nos écrans il y a une dizaine de jours. Et dans la foulée est arrivée ce week-end une première mise à jour assez importante, patch déguisé en DLC gratuit ajoutant du contenu supplémentaire (sites de fouille, nouveaux dinosaures issus du film Fallen Kingdom) et surtout venant corriger une première série de bugs ainsi qu’améliorer divers aspects du jeu. Qui en résumé sera plus stable, offrira de meilleurs performances, et plus d’animations pour les superbes modèles 3D de dinosaures.

Si les graphismes sont incontestablement le point fort du jeu, les premiers retours semblent toutefois indiquer de sérieuse lacunes en terme de gestion. A savoir des prises de décision trop faciles, ou peu cohérentes, et dans certains cas répétitives. Or, c’est un peu dommage, tout l’intérêt d’un jeu de construction et de gestion est bien entendu dans la profondeur de la gestion pour le joueur. Si comme cela semble être le cas pour l’instant celle-ci est trop facile, par exemple les désastres climatiques ou la mort de visiteurs dans le parc n’ayant que des conséquences minimes ou passagères, il ne reste plus que l’aspect construction, sans trop réfléchir alors à une vraie gestion d’un parc. Après il reste bien sûr le plaisir de pouvoir jouer en 3D dans l’univers de Jurassic Park.

Peut-être d’autres patchs et / ou DLC viendront-ils à l’avenir étoffer plus les mécanismes, et pas seulement la ménagerie.

Jurassic World Evolution OUT NOW!

Take control of the Muertes archipelago – Jurassic World Evolution is out today on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One!

After our initial game announcement a little over a year ago, we’ve been working hard on bringing you the next iteration of dinosaur and disaster management. Jurassic World Evolution puts you in charge of both, and how you choose to proceed is entirely in your hands – Dr. Ian Malcolm and a cast of iconic characters will be there to guide you along the way.

Challenge yourself and create your own Jurassic World within the divisions of Science, Entertainment, and Security. You will need to construct tourist attractions, research facilities, and containment centres for your island to flourish. Your operations are vital: if your guests aren’t having a good time, they won’t be staying around for too long, and you won’t be able to turn a profit – which lets you unlock new challenges and islands.

Of course, the stars of your parks are your dinosaurs. You can source global dig sites in search of fossils and research new genes to unlock new species and bioengineering opportunities. Each dinosaur has its own set of behaviours, traits, and appearance (which you can modify through scientific research), as well as enclosure needs that you’ll need to satisfy.

Success is measured by tracking your income and reputation based on your overall park and dinosaur ratings. The more you expand, the faster your name will be known, but beware of threats that are out of your control, such as storms, disease, dinosaur escapes, or industrial espionage. Your actions have consequences!

Jurassic World Evolution has been a true team effort from the start, with many of us sharing the same nostalgia for the Jurassic movies and games with you! Today, we want to take a moment to thank all of the developers for the love, passion, and hard work they’ve put into the game. We’d also like to thank our partners at Universal, because without them, none of this would have been possible! Thank you to our forum mods, content creators, and all others who keep our community a welcoming and positive place where your voices can be heard, and ideas can be shared.

Last but not least we’d like to thank all of you for your ongoing support, feedback, and enthusiasm. We won’t lie: it was a bit overwhelming when we announced the game and realised the size and strength of the Jurassic community! Thank you for helping us envision and shape the game, and we are honoured to have been in this position. Thank you, and enjoy the game!

The digital version of Jurassic World Evolution is out now on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox one. You can buy the PC base game for £44.99 here and here, or the Deluxe version (which includes 5 extra dinosaurs) for £49.99 here and here. For console versions, check here for PlayStation 4 which costs £49.99 (base)/54.99 (Deluxe), and check here for Xbox One which costs £49.99 (base)/£54.99 (Deluxe).

The physical version of Jurassic World Evolution for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One comes out on July 3, 2018. Here is a list of stores from which to purchase the game.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Dinosaur Update OUT NOW!

Hold onto your butts! The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Dinosaur update is here!

This update introduces three new dig sites, a cast of new dinosaurs which you can bring to your island, new InGen database entries and a number of fixes and improvements to the base game.
Guests will be pouring onto your island to see two brand new herbivores, the feisty Stygimoloch, and the horn-adorned Sinoceratops. Each will have their own comfort requirements, so get those enclosures ready!

And, if you feel like you’re an expert in crisis management, you’ll also see the arrival of three new carnivores, the terrific and terrifying Baryonyx, Carnotaurus and Allosaurus. Don’t put them too close to your guests though. They bite, chew and swallow whole.

Alongside these toothy predators stands the star of the show: the horrifying and one-of-a-kind, Indoraptor! Haven’t yet had the pleasure to come face to face with this monstrosity? Get yourself to a screening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (to prepare yourself) or… simply introduce one into your park!
