10 NEW Dinosaur Games of 2022 - Gameranx (1)

We don’t get too many new dinosaur games out into the marketplace each year. However, a few dinosaur games are coming in 2022 that you might be interested in. With that said, don’t think of this as a ranked list as the majority of these games have yet to release into the marketplace. Although, if you’re after some dinosaur games that you can play right now, check out our other list about some of the best dinosaur games to have ever been released.

#10 Project Ferocious

10 NEW Dinosaur Games of 2022 - Gameranx (2)

  • Publisher: OMYOG
  • Platform: PS4, XBO, PC
  • Release: NA

Project Ferocious is a game we want to mention on this list. This is an upcoming survival shooter where you’re battling against prehistoric beasts in this deadly world. So far, we know the game is about a protagonist investigating a distress call from a nearby location only to find a mysterious island. Here a hostile force is hoping to keep the island a secret from the rest of the world. Players will have to uncover the truth behind the island and survive the lost world. Right now, it doesn’t look like we’ll get the game this year as the developers are suggesting a 2023 release, but it’s a title at least worth keeping tabs on in case it happens to come out before 2022 wraps.

  • Release: NA

Dinosaur Fossil Hunter – Paleontology Simulator is a game that pretty much tells you what you need to know. In this game, you’re taking the role of a paleontologist who will go on different digs to find precious dinosaur bones and fossils. Not only are you searching the sites for bones to dig up, but you’ll need to prepare them for display carefully.

  • Publisher: Hashbane Limited
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, X/S, XBO, NS, PS5
  • Release: NA

Instinction is an upcoming horror game based around April Summers. Within the game, April Summers is an adventurer exploring new lands. We’re still waiting on more details to come out, but it looks like April is going through some intense environments. During your travel, you’ll find a location filled with dinosaurs. It seems that a big component of this game is sneaking around the area to avoid drawing attention to yourself, although you’ll have some firepower to gun down a beast that takes an interest. So far, developers will have players exploring caves, forests, underwater depths, and ancient ruins to find ancient artifacts left by a past civilization. Just like any good survival horror game, when you’re not scavenging for resources, picking up clues, and fighting off enemies, you’ll have to solve a series of puzzles.

#5 Deathground

Deathground is an upcoming game that drops players into an island full of precious loot. You’ll need to venture into the lush forests and research facilities either by yourself or with a group of friends. Overall, you’ll get different objectives to complete and loot to acquire before trying to make your way over towards an extraction point. Meanwhile, the island is full of deadly and hostile prehistoric dinosaurs. Developers have highlighted that the game will include challenging AI dinosaurs, weather systems, random spawn, and extraction points within the map. This should make each playthrough unique, but player feedback will ultimately tweak the game. During upcoming test phases, developers will be able to further craft up the game for its official launch, which doesn’t have a date attached quite yet. So we might not see Deathground release until 2023, but we’ll have to wait and watch for an official announcement.

Prehistoric Kingdom is an upcoming title where players go through a simulation management game. It’s quite a bit like the Jurassic World Evolution series if you’re familiar with that franchise. In this game, players are building up a prehistoric zoo where you’ll design different enclosures, place down shelters, and provide all the necessary care for different dinosaurs, whether it’s a Woolly Mammoth to a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Meanwhile, players will have to manage their staff outside of designing your park. This means hiring staff who can help take care of the animals and help the guests who visit your park. Currently, the development studio is aiming for a release this April, but it will be launching as an early access title for the time being.
