Jurassic World Evolution is a business simulation video game developed and published by Frontier Developments. Based on the 2015 film Jurassic World, the game was released digitally on June 12, 2018 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. In the game, players construct a dinosaur park on Las Cinco Muertes Archipelago, a group of five islands also known as the "Five Deaths". The game features more than 40 types of dinosaurs, and their DNA and genes can be modified to introduce new features. In the game, players are given contracts by three divisions, namely science, security and entertainment in order to progress. A sandbox mode set on Isla Nublar can be unlocked. The game was created with a development team of approximately 100 people on a budget of around £8 million. Development of the game commenced in 2016, after NBCUniversal approached Frontier Developments about creating a game accompanying the theatrical release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. To develop the game, Frontier inspected different dinosaur models and reference materials sent by Universal, and read Jurassic Park films, novels and fan theories. Paleontologist Jack Horner was consulted when the team was designing the dinosaurs. Jeff Goldblum, Bryce Dallas Howard and B. D. Wong reprised their roles from the Jurassic Park film series, giving remarks to players and contributing to the game's narrative. Announced at Gamescom 2017, the game received a generally mixed critical reception. The game's dinosaurs designs and graphics were praised by critics, but the game's contracts and simulation and management gameplay received mixed responses. The game's tutorial ad learning curve were criticized. Five weeks after its initial release, the game had sold one million copies through digital and physical sales. The game was supported with free updates and downloadable content upon release.
