During this year's Future Games program, Jurassic World Evolution 2 game director Rich Newbold revealed more information about Frontier's upcoming dinosaur-centric management sequel.
Along with actor and "dinosaur expert" Jeff Goldblum, Newbold showed two new dinosaurs that will be added to the list of reptiles: the ichthyosaur that inhabits the sea and the long-lived cearadactylus. These two dinosaurs are part of the many new flying and marine dinosaurs that are introduced to Jurassic World Evolution 2, along with its other 75 different species.
Newbold also talks about the new park simulator environments, which are a big deal because Jurassic World Evolution 2 is no longer limited to the Muertes archipelago. The game will include mountains, deserts, snow-capped peaks and lots of new terrain hazards, challenging players to protect their parks and dino residents from environmental hazards such as fierce sandstorms and heavy rains.
Jeff Goldblum is being typical of Jeff Goldblum as he reacts in front of the dinosaurs, casually chatting about how the cearadactylus “means” (which he is right, he totally does) and his recent encounter with a barracuda. Goldblum will return to the game expressing the iconic Dr. Ian Malcolm, a character he has played in previous games and in the Jurassic Park movies.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 will be released on PC on November 9 and, from what we’ve seen so far, it successfully returns to pure wonder of just seeing dinosaurs.
