Jeff Goldblum Returns To Jurassic Park In New Game Jurassic World Evolution

Dr. Ian Malcolm is back for more than just the new movie.

11 Comments

If the notion of a new Jurassic Park simulation game from the makers of Planet Coaster weren't enough to win you over, developer Frontier Developments has now upped the ante. The studio has announced that actor Jeff Goldblum will reprise his film role and be featured in the new game, Jurassic World Evolution.

Yes, Chef Goldblum himself will again star as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Evolution. His exact role remains unclear; in the announcement video below, Goldblum says he'll "be with you the whole game," and an accompanying press release suggests he'll serve as some kind of advisor. "Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm guides players through the moral choices and tactical decisions that will test their building and management skills as they attempt to successfully run their own Jurassic World," Frontier explains.

Evolution allows players to run their own Jurassic Park, taking control of Isla Nublar and the nearby islands. You're able to create new breeds of dinosaur and attractions to show them off, along with the necessary facilities to house them and do research. Frontier has also promised an "an all-new story that touches on key characters and events from across the Jurassic World film franchise." It's slated for release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One sometime this summer.

Jurassic Park has received a new lease on life thanks to the tremendous success of 2015's Jurassic World. A sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, is due out on June 22 and will also feature the return of Goldblum to his role as Malcolm.

Not sure what to make of this, but I'll buy it since it's the last big title dinosaur experience.

I think The Fly was the last movie Jeff Goldblum was cast as somebody other than Jeff Goldblum.

Absolutely will not purchase nor install it, then. He utterly grates my last nerve. "Jeff Goldblum as Jeff Goldblum, in stuttering identical character with new outfit."

Even in his finest role, The Fly, he still used exactly the same delivery. Jeff Goldblum is a non-actor.

Breeding dinosaurs means I can have normal dinosaurs instead of camofladging laser spitting hacker lizards?

@PrpleTrtleBuBum: Don't forget the M-16-wielding Jesus rider + Western saddle upgrade DLC!

@PrpleTrtleBuBum: None of the dinosaurs in JP are normal really. They're all hybrids. Some more than others.

@nuke2099: You know what I mean. There was that rumor/idea at some point about JP4 having super intelligent (human-intelligent) dinosaurs carrying laser guns. Fortunately Jurassic World wasn't that, but we are getting closer.
