‘Jurassic World Aftermath’ Launches on Quest 2 Tomorrow, ‘Part 2’ DLC Teased


Announced back in September at the reveal of Quest 2, Jurassic World Aftermath is suddenly set to be released on the headset tomorrow, according to the game’s just-released launch trailer.

Developed by veteran VR studio Coatsink as a Quest exclusive, Jurassic World Aftermath is shaping up to look a bit like a made-for-VR version of Alien Isolation. And if they pull it off, that would probably be a very good thing as Alien Isolation has long been touted as a highly immersive game that would work great in VR—so much that a fan created a mod to imbue it with VR capabilities.

Instead of an otherworldly alien, however, the game focuses on the velociraptor as the entity that will stalk the player, harkening back to the memorable ‘raptors in the kitchen‘ scene from the original Jurassic Park (1993). Here’s the pitch from the game’s store page:

Jurassic World Aftermath is a suspenseful, survival VR adventure. Crash-landing on Isla Nublar after the fall of Jurassic World, you find yourself trapped in a research facility when your mission to recover valuable information goes disastrously wrong. Your only hope of escape is to retrieve the confidential information while trying to avoid three deadly Velociraptors. To survive, you’ll need to explore, solve puzzles, and find ways to distract and hide from the ferocious Velociraptors that stalk your every move.

While the game was announced back in September, we didn’t know the release date or price until today—Jurassic Park Aftermath launches tomorrow, December 17th, priced at $25, and exclusively available on Oculus Quest and Quest 2.

Writing on Mashable, Joseph Volpe today shared some impressions of the game and info from the developers, including plans for a ‘Part 2’ DLC sometime in 2021 which promises to ramp up “the danger and the intensity.”

    Having played Robinson the journey which had beautifull dinosaurs and enviroments, this looks just awful. Doesn’t mean it isn’t fun as it seems like a lot of fun to me, but I wished they hadn’t go for this ugly graphical style.

  • Colin Parnell

    I have always trusted Road To VR for being accurate, but to say a fan made Alien Isolation work in VR is wrong as far as I know. I read in multiple places that it was inside the game originally, but never released by SEGA, and a fan made a mod to make it available. Small point, but it has now made me worry about the factual accuracy of everything they write about. I also agree that the style is ugly in this game and am not sure I understand why they made it this way. Would have preferred Alyx quality and style.

    • If you click the link above highlighted in the text you’re referring to, the RoadToVR article from 2017 says exactly that. They simplified it in this article but still linked to their original article for more detailed context. I do agree though that while this might be a fun game it loses the scare factor for me by taking away the realism of other VR survival horror titles.

      • Jonathan Winters III

        Until you actually play it. The cel-shaded comic aesthetic is amazing while in VR.

      A Alyx quality and style unfortunately is impossible on the Quest, it’s not even close to being powerful enough. Contractors tried to go with a realistic style and I don’t like how it turned out. I prefer a stylized approach like Superhot or Pistol Whip.

      • I wouldn’t say it’s impossible when we have The Room: A Dark Matter and Red Matter as examples of more realistic art styles working well on Quest. It does seem like developers need to have an incredible grasp of rendering optimization and the game probably needs to be fairly small in complexity.

  • oomph

    Jurassic theme is so overwhelming that it should be recreated as ray traced games where everything looks & acts like in its movies.
    A rocking chair should also be added as addon hah ha

    £18 for part one of 2 , which boosts 3 hours game play with very little playability. These Oculus Exclusives aren’t games there short experiences. Part 2 will be another 3 hour short experience adding up to £36 for experience.. Sorry but Quest 2 maybe cheap to buy £299 but there certainly ripping you off with game prices. Would any PC VR player pay £36 for 6 hours worth game play that you wont return to once completed? , If this is future of VR , it going in wrong direction. Just make complete game and charge fair price. Make effort to make something people will return to.

  • Lulu Vi Britannia

    Ignore the graphics. Ignore the gameplay. Ignore whether the game is good or bad. The way they RIPPED OFF customers by releasing half of a game and then teasing the rest as a DLC is unacceptable. “Hey, you want to get the full product? Pay twice. Sucker.”

    That reason alone makes this game worthless. Just because I love VR doesn’t mean I’ll let companies screw me over. The gaming industry needs to change their anti-consumer business practices.

    • Jonathan Winters III

      WHOA HORSIE!!! Oculus did not hide or lie – this is a roughly 5 hour game for $24.99. What’s not to like? the Part 2 DLC you can buy if you want or not!

      • A lot of people are saying this is a 3 hour experience. I agree with Lulu here, I think it’s dishonest to sell Part 1 of a two part game as though it’s the full product and not tell people about it until they first open up the software.

      • Lulu Vi Britannia

        They did hide it, smartass. Part 2 was announced at the launch of the first game. How many people bought it expecting the full game, only to be met with “if you want the rest, pay up!”?

        People really need to stop protecting billionnaire companies whose only purpose is to milk customers as much as possible. They’re milking you too, you know.

  • Jesustilloves

    I think it’s excellent and I recall playing jurrasic park on the 3do 24 years ago.We are in the future.

  • jeff A courtney

    Alien iso free now on epic games.

  • kakek

    I really hope this one get a PC version. I’m really sad that Oculus is so actively killing hte RiftS. I mean, godamnit, is it that hard to make a PC port ?

  • Janx

    Hej alla. Jag är säker på att de sensationella nyheterna om obligatoriska casinolicenser inte längre är en nyhet för någon. Men jag har en fråga. Jag vet att det finns många typer av casinolicenser. Finns det ett kasino utan licens alls?

    • Fishy

      Hallå! Ja du har rätt. Den här nyheten chockade många människor i januari 2019. Men lita på mig, nu är det vanligt för alla att alla kasinon är licensierade. Ja, ja, jag hade inte fel. Alla kasinon är licensierade. Du kan hitta ett kasino utan en specifik licens, men du kan knappast hitta ett kasino utan en licens alls. Läs mer om det här https://netentcasinoonline.com . Fram tills.
