Frontier has also announced Jurassic World Evolution Digital Deluxe Edition, which will come with five extra dinosaurs (Crichtonsaurus, Styracosaurus, Majungasaurus, Archaeornithomimus, and Suchomimus). Everybody who pre-orders will also get exclusive skins for the game’s Ranger vehicles and helicopters. The Deluxe Edition will cost $60 (the standard edition costs $55).

Don’t worry though, those who don’t want to spend that extra five bucks will still get plenty of dinos. The game will ship with over 30 species, which Frontier promises will be the “best dinosaurs you’ve ever seen.” I dunno, I’ve seen some pretty good dinos in my day, but there’s no denying Jurassic World Evolution is a lot more visually impressive than your average sim. But don’t take my word for it – Frontier recently let a handful of YouTubers take Jurassic World Evolution for a spin.

Looks like Frontier has spared no expense! For those who haven’t been keeping up, Jurassic World Evolution will give dino fans a chance to manage parks on multiple islands and choose what they want their focus to be – safety, scientific discovery, or making money. Of course, since this is a Jurassic Park game, things can and will go spectacularly wrong on a regular basis, with players having to deal with storms, power outages, dino breakouts, and corporate espionage. Oh, and America’s favorite sexy uncle Jeff Goldblum will be narrating the whole thing.

Jurassic World Evolution launch digitally on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on June 12. An Xbox One and PS4 packaged retail edition will hit shelves on July 3. So, who's excited to play God?
