Jurassic World Evolution Switch Gamescom Opening Night Live

During Gamescom Opening Night Live, Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition for Switch was revealed, meaning its time to get ready to let life find a way on your Nintendo Switch.

Jeff Goldblum, speaking as Dr. Ian Malcolm from the Jurassic movie series, narrated the trailer as it led up to a November 3 release date.


Check it out below:

Jurassic World: Evolution is a management game that gives you the opportunity to operate your own dino island in The Cinco Muertes Archipelago, whether you want to create a serious scientific endeavor or a tourist hot spot. In addition to managing, you can also jump into some hands-on action on the ground or in the air. It includes characters from the films like Dr. Ian Malcolm, Dr. Alan Grant, and Dr. Ellie Sattler.

As the Switch port is the Complete Edition it includes all the DLC up to now. Jurassic World Evolution: Return to Jurassic Park is an expansion set just after the first Jurassic Park movie and features its film cast as voiceovers. Your goal in it is to rebuild the original park, and it includes set-pieces like the Jurassic Park gates. It also features an overlay reminiscent of the original movie. 


Claire's Sanctuary is set on Isla Nublar where Claire Dearing, Operations Manager from Jurassic World, is relocating dinosaurs to Sanctuary island. 

Secrets of Dr. Wu is set in Las Cinco Muertes and contains a new campaign that revolves around Dr. Wu, the researcher whose specialty is hybrid dinosaurs.    

Additionally, there are four other packs that add extra dinosaurs: the Herbivore Dinosaur Pack, Carnivore Dinosaur Pack, Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack, and Deluxe Dinosaur Pack


Jurassic World Evolution originally launched on Steam, and came to PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

If you're already getting hungry for some dino action on your Switch, Jurassic World: Evolution is now available for preorder. And remember: just because you can doesn't mean that you should.


Quick Take

 Growing up I was a huge Jurassic Park fan to say the least, but I don't know if I'm ready to manage my own virtual park. Chances are mine would fall into T-Rex chaos. I best hold out for that first-person stealth Jurassic Park game.
