If you’re a frequent visitor of the Epic Games Store, you’re probably well aware of the free giveaways that have been occurring daily on the platform this December. Every day, there has been something new to look forward to.
As of today (December 31st), PC gamers can claim Jurassic World Evolution for nothing for one day only. If you’re a fan of the Jurassic World film that debuted back in 2015 or just like park simulators, this title is a great pickup worth celebrating.
Frontier Developments gives you plenty of tools to manage the islands of the Muertes archipelago, which are teeming in prehistoric life. You’ll start off small, investing money into researching dinosaur DNA with the hope of bringing about new and old creations.
Seeing your research manifest itself into life is an incredible experience that makes Jurassic World Evolution very unique. It hits all of the right notes of the franchise too, featuring iconic characters and narrative-based experiences that keep you on the edge of your seat.
Where this park simulator really shines is with its bevy of systems you can control. As you might imagine, running a fully functional dinosaur park requires a lot of effort and multi-tasking. From controlling electrical systems to deciding where to put your money, there are always big decisions you’re confronted with.
If you want your park to be successful and stay this way, then you have to allocate your resources correctly, knowing where to save money and ways to generate more profit. You might raise the prices of your restaurants or put in a new attraction with a dinosaur that has never existed.
Just like in Jurassic World, you’re given a lot of freedom on how your dinosaur park runs from day to day. You never really have to worry about running out of things to do either.
Even the visuals and scale in this game really shine through. You’ll appreciate the different areas that you expand to, the physical traits of your dinosaurs, and the details that the developer put into the park structures.
Jurassic World Evolution truly is a must-play experience if you’ve followed the series over the years and have always wanted to see what it’s like to run one of these special parks that comes around once in a lifetime.
You’re tasked with a lot, but if you can manage your resources and make smart decisions early on, you’ll see the fruits of your labor in real-time.
