Frontier Developments has released Jurassic World Evolution 2, the sequel to one of our favorite theme park management games. It’s out now on PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S, in Standard ($59.99) and Deluxe Editions ($69.99).

The sequel is set after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, where (Spoiler Alert!) dinosaurs officially escape and run wild across the rest of the world. That means we’ll no longer be confined to tiny islands to build our dream dinosaur theme parks. Over 75 species of dinosaurs can be discovered, researched, and genetically altered, including flying and marine reptiles.

The Campaign mode follows the events after Fallen Kingdom in an original story. Returning characters Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard) and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) will help guide you across the continental US, establishing new facilities to contain and conserve wild dinosaurs.

The new Chaos Theory mode unlocks familiar moments and scenarios from the five-film Jurassic franchise. Open a functioning Jurassic Park. Show off the Tyrannosaurus Rex at the San Diego Amphitheatre. Run the complete Jurassic World experience. Chaos Theory mode features its own set of challenges to overcome, and is narrated by Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong).

Challenge mode includes difficult scenarios that will test your dinosaur managing skills, while Sandbox mode gives you all the tools and options to freely create the park of your dreams without time or money constraints.

The Deluxe Edition includes three vehicle skins, six building amenity signs, and five new dinosaur species for Challenge and Sandbox modes:

  • Geosternbergia
  • Attenborosaurus
  • Pachyrhinosaurus
  • Huayangosaurus
  • Megalosaurus

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is available now on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. It’s rated T for Teen.
