Jurassic Park: Survival Might Just Be the Jurassic Park Game We’ve Been Waiting For

How have we had to wait this long for a new action-adventure Jurassic Park game? The trailer for Jurassic Park: Survival, revealed last night at The Game Awards, might be one of our favourite surprises of the night – and we absolutely can’t wait to see more.

Jurassic Park: Survival is a single-player action-adventure game with an original story. It’s set on Isla Nublar, following the events of the original 1993 Jurassic Park movie. Players will take on the role of Maya Joshi, a scientist working with InGen. She’s left behind as Isla Nublar is evacuated, tasking her to survive a terrifying dinosaur onslaught as she comes face-to-face with T-Rexes, velociraptors and more.

It’s being developed by Saber Interactive, the team behind Evil Dead: The Game, World War Z and Snowrunner, amongst other titles. We’re pleasantly surprised it’s a single player game; with Evil Dead and World War Z under its belt, Saber could have easily made this a multiplayer experience. And as cool as an asymmetric multiplayer where one person takes on the role of a T-rex sounds, we are long overdue a (hopefully) good Jurassic Park adventure.

Watch the trailer for Jurassic Park: Survival below:

We can expect a lot of stealth gameplay here as we sneak past dinosaurs and try to avoid being mauled or eaten. There’ll be other survival horror mechanics at play here in Jurassic Park: Survival, too, as we explore Isla Nublar and try to get through the night.

The bad news is there’s no release date yet. And with Saber Interactive having several games currently in development (Space Marine 2, John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando, Expeditions, A Quiet Place: The Game) we feel it’s likely that it’ll be at least 2025 before Jurassic Park: Survival sees light of day.

Still, it’s something to look forward to, and we’ll be keeping a close eye on new trailers and announcements in the coming months. It’s set to release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
