More thanks to Primeval forum member "Luckyhannah25" for providing us with a link with set pictures from an episode of Primeval.
They all feature three of the main actors/characters; Andrew-Lee Potts (Connor Temple), Hannah Spearitt(Abby Maitland) and Ben Mansfield (Captain Becker). Also Abby seems to be carrying a bag with the handle of a big knife(?) sticking out.
Finally I would like to draw your attention to the new ARC symbol(bottom right) as seen in Episode 3.9 in the future ARC.
You can see more of the pictures here.

Thanks to our Primeval forum member "luckyhannah25" for finding these.
Parts 1 and 2 of the video are here for your viewing pleasure, although there is not much to it, apart from a big creature being imagined. Possibly another one of the ARC's rare dinosaur encounters?
It shouldn't too be long before Impossible Pictures or ITV pull these down, I assume.

So, congrats to the team behind primeval evolved!
But what do you think about it winning over the other nominees, which i think can be found on the previous blog entry, worthy winner?
All the best

Primeval: Evolved, is an interactive game taking place "behind-the-scenes" of Series 3 of Primeval. You play the role of a lab technician who has started roughly before the events of episode 3.1 (Series 3 Episode 1) and is forced to help a mysterious woman called Eve (who we later see in episode 3.9). As of now the game (and the set of mini-games called Connor's Games) haven't been pulled down, so try it out and see what you think and comment if it deserves an Emmy.

Speaking exclusively to Total Sci-Fi, co-creator Adrian Hodges said he was delighted with the additions to the cast, including Ciarin McMenamin, who played the older David Copperfield in Hodges’ adaptation of the Dickens novel for BBC Classics, as new leading man Matt Anderson.
“He is a wonderful actor with an enigmatic, heroic quality that fits his character really well,” Hodges said. “Matt is a man with a lot of secrets and I think Ciarin is terrific at being both heroic, accessible but also just a little bit mysterious.”
Former Star Trek: Deep Space Nine star Alexander Siddig joins as Philip Burton, the co-runner of the ARC with Ben Miller’s James Lester. “It's a real coup for us to get such a fine actor in this important part and I think he's going to bring a lot of quality to the show. It's a joy to be working with him,” Hodges notes.
Playing Jess, the new head of operations at the ARC, is Irish actress Ruth Kearney. “She is a new face – Primeval is her first TV job – and as the character of Jess I think she's gong to be a lot of fun. She has a fresh, lively quality which is lovely and she's also very funny.”
Hannah Spearritt, Andrew Lee-Potts and Ben Mansfield will be reprising their roles as Abby, Connor and Becker, with Hodges telling us that he’s “also really glad that one or two important faces from the past are going to be returning during the series. Stand by for surprises...!"
- Ciarán McMenamin is to play Matt Anderson, the new field leader. He's an ex-soldier and zoologist, with "an uncanny ability to understand animals." He is "a man with a lot of secrets", and there is a "real reason" why he joined the ARC.
- Ruth Kearney will play Jess, an "unconventional", "highly efficient and organised" woman who now runs operations from the ARC control centre, and has an unrequited crush on Captain Becker.
- The ARC is now jointly run by Lester and charismatic scientist Philip Burton, played by Alexander Siddig.
- Ben Miller, Hannah Spearritt, Andrew Lee-Potts and Ben Mansfield are all confirmed to return as regulars, and Jason Flemyng for a few episodes. Still no mention of Laila Rouass, though.
- "One or two important faces from the past" are to return to the show. We already know that James Bradshaw (Duncan) is to return, but who else?
