Dinosaur games steam – If you are looking for the dinosaur game free download page, click here. For now let us concentrate on the best dinosaurs games available on Steam, so be sure to read it until the end!
Saurian is one of those good games that were released at least a few years too late. Its Kickstarter campaign was a complete success, gathering several times the initial goal. That means a few fewer of us will be playing it now, since not so many people backed this dinosaur simulation game, which is a shame because Saurian is simply one of the best of its genre.

Of course it had to take place far from our time period, even though they are still using human language, so don’t expect to hear “boyfriend” being used about a T-Rex. It is the late Cretaceous period, you’ll be playing as one of the three dinosaur species (the others will be added later), and descending into total madness by fighting against humans.
Few games manage to capture the sense of dread that can come with time travel, but Saurian makes it work all too well.
2. The Isle
Remember how I mentioned that not many people backed Saurian? Well, if you are one of them, this might be a suitable substitute until it arrives. The Isle is an upcoming open-world dinosaur survival game where you will have to eat, drink and sleep to survive. It’s going to be a lot like Mount and Blade: Warband, just instead of a horse you’ll have a raptor, and there will be no castles or lords involved.
The Isle is in early access, so if you purchase it now you will immediately get access to the most recent alpha version. It’s not a finished game yet but it has been receiving regular updates and should become more polished very soon.
Just like Saurian, The Isle has dinosaurs at its core. However, this is mostly an FPS game where you will hunt other dinosaurs, build traps and try to survive. The current version is already very playable (and fun) but there are lots of things that still need improvement until it’s ready for Steam’s full release.
3. Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection
I must admit, I never thought that Zoo Tycoon would be a good game. It seemed rather childish to me, showing that it didn’t understand what makes games fun. There is no way building a zoo could be interesting because there are no goals! But… I was wrong. Zoo Tycoon actually turned out to have lots of depth and was surprisingly fun to play.
Well, Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection is basically a newer version of the same game, only it’s even better this time! It has more dino species, as well as all those other animals that nobody really cares about because they’re not dinosaurs! Many people who bought the original Zoo Tycoon on Steam were only interested in playing with dinosaurs, so this is a great opportunity to play exactly that. Unfortunately, you can’t mix the animals between ZT1 and ZT: UAC, they are separate games.
Zoo Tycoon is also available for free on Origin, but it’s an older version of the game without all those fancy features included.
4. Primal Carnage: Extinction
Primal Carnage was a great dinosaur FPS when it first came out, and it’s still one of the best dinosaur multiplayer games to date even though it has been five years since its release in 2012.
Extinction is a standalone expansion that takes the concept to a whole new level. Not only does it include all dino types from the previous game, but also adds the ability to play as one of those huge monsters roaming around and stomping on everyone! It’s going to be great fun for dinosaur lovers, even though playing as a monster might be a bit tricky.
There isn’t much information about Primal Carnage: Extinction available yet, but we know that it’s going to be released on Steam and the PlayStation store sometime soon (it was supposed to come out this month but has been postponed).
5. Jurassic World: Evolution
This is a bit of an oddity because it’s not going to be a dinosaur-themed game at all! Instead, it will be a tycoon game where you can build your own version of the famous theme park by buying dinosaurs and placing them in their pens. You then need to create tourist attractions and other structures to keep the people happy and coming back for more.
While this may sound boring, it should be pretty fun and I’m sure that Jurassic Park fans will love it! One interesting point is that you can even try to re-create the events of the movies by placing dangerous dinos in their “habitats”. This might end up badly for everyone, but it will be interesting to see what happens.
So… What are you waiting for? So there you have it, folks, five great Dinosaur games on steam to get if you want to be a dinosaur hunter. The only thing missing is Ark: Survival Evolved, but that’s because I already wrote about it a long time ago. If you don’t know what game to get next then just pick one of these, they are all really good.
