Tonight, during the 2023 Game Awards, we got our first trailer at Jurassic Park: Survival, an upcoming first-person action survival game featuring a new character who seems to be trapped on the original island from the first movie. And she’s trapped on the island after all the dinosaurs have escaped. Uh oh!

Let me be clear: I love the Jurassic Park theme park builders. I’ve sunk so many hours into all of them, even Operation Genesis. But I’ve long wanted a big, AAA first-person action game set in this universe. And now, it seems, I’m finally getting what I wanted.

In the trailer, which features a small amount of gameplay in the middle, a young woman is running around terrified (understandably so) across the original Isla Nublar, escaping famous dinos like the massive T-Rex. Is the trailer a bit fan servivce-y, featuring famous locations and moments from the first film? Sure. But I’m too excited to care that much.

Interestingly, Jurassic Park: Survival shares its name with a never-released action game from Konami that was going to be set on a secret third island and would have tied in with the then-newly released Jurassic Park III. The game was canned in July 2001. I doubt this new game has anything to do with that canceled title, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if the name was picked to directly reference that never-released PS2-era Jurassic Park game as many fans still talk about it to this day.
