Jurassic Park: The Game Screenshots Available
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Worthplaying has released a collection of new screenshots for Telltale Games' upcoming Jurassic Park: The Game. Based on the popular movie series, the game will give players a chance to participate in the world of genetically engineered dinosaurs.

The game storyline picks up on the stormy night as Jurassic Park began to fall apart –when Dennis Nedry stole a Barbasol can full of invaluable dinosaur embryos. He died trying to deliver it. He never knew it contained a tracking device. That same night, a desperate smuggler infiltrates Isla Nublar, hunting the canister and its precious cargo. She collides – literally – with park staff trying to evacuate. They are trapped together as the park collapses, left behind with the newly-freed dinosaurs. When InGen launches a perilous rescue operation, mercenaries, saboteurs, and survivors are thrown together in the struggle to escape the island. They confront T. Rex, Velociraptors and other dinosaurs in spectacular showdowns. As human agendas clash, secrets of the park are exposed, and a new threat emerges: an eerie, nocturnal predator stalking the group, hunting them relentlessly across the island.
Head over to the link below to see the new visuals.
