This April, fans of Jurassic Park can experience what really happened to the Barbasol can of stolen dinosaur embryos lost during the first film. Developed through a publishing agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, Telltale’s new game based on Jurassic Park will shed light on this mystery and much more.
The world premiere trailer and a special pre-order offer are now online at the game’s official site: http://www.jurassicparkthegame.com. Customers who pre-order for PC and Mac can save $5 and get the game for just $29.99. The full purchase price will be $34.99 when the game series launches in April.
An episodic adventure in five parts, the game is set during the events of the first film. The story unfolds through a film-inspired cinematic adventure crafted to stir mystery and tension while building to exciting climactic peaks.
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.
