Expansions
Fallen Kingdom Free Update

This update introduces three new dig sites, a cast of new dinosaurs which you can bring to your island, new InGen database entries and a number of fixes and improvements to the base game.

Guests will be pouring onto your island to see two brand new herbivores, the feisty Stygimoloch, and the horn-adorned Sinoceratops. Each will have their own comfort requirements, so get those enclosures ready!

And, if you feel like you’re an expert in crisis management, you’ll also see the arrival of three new carnivores, the terrific and terrifying Baryonyx, Carnotaurus and Allosaurus. Don’t put them too close to your guests though. They bite, chew and swallow whole.

Alongside these toothy predators stands the star of the show: the horrifying and one-of-a-kind, Indoraptor! Haven’t yet had the pleasure to come face to face with this monstrosity? Get yourself to a screening of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (to prepare yourself) or… simply introduce one into your park!

Deluxe Dinosaur Pack

This pack of additional dinosaurs is for owners of the base game who would like to upgrade to the Deluxe Edition of Jurassic World Evolution. Includes the following Dinosaurs:
· Styracosaurus
· Crichtonsaurus
· Majungasaurus
· Archaeornithomimus
· Suchomimus

Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack

Expand your dinosaur collection in Jurassic World Evolution with a selection of impressive creatures from the Cretaceous period. Jurassic World Evolution: Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack introduces 3 remarkable specimens, each with a distinct set of behaviors and needs.

• The Iguanodon is an herbivore that walks on all fours but can also stand on its hind limbs in aim to discourage predators with its powerful thumb spikes.

• The threatening, carnivorous Carcharodontosaurus has sharp and jagged teeth.

• The Dreadnoughtus is known for being one of the largest land animals that ever lived, his name rightfully means “fears nothing”.

Secrets of Dr. Wu

Face your toughest challenge yet! Hidden within Las Cinco Muertes is an intriguing new storyline featuring campaign missions from Dr. Henry Wu, who remains dedicated to his research with hybrid dinosaurs.

As the story unfolds, you will learn that Dr. Wu has access to previously unseen locations, including his hidden hybrid development facility, kept secret even from the Hammond Foundation. These facilities will be based on two new locations on Isla Muerta and Isla Tacano.

Work alongside the Divisions, while secretly answering to Dr. Wu. Earn his trust to gain access to new dig sites and bring to life five new dinosaurs, three of them being Dr. Wu’s hybrids. These exciting new discoveries will bring chaos caused by conflicts of interest as well as the dinosaurs themselves.

Unlock powerful new tools for genetic manipulation and gain more control over your dinosaurs’ needs and behaviors than ever before. With careful conditioning you’ll alter their habitat, social, and population requirements, allowing even the most solitary and predatory of dinosaurs to cohabitate more peacefully with their own kind.
Completing your missions and furthering Dr. Wu’s agenda will advance your research to unlock the Indominus Rex camouflage gene. The Indominus Rex can blend into its surroundings and make a surprise attack, so don’t let this one out of your sight!

Carnivore Dinosaur Pack

Unleash three new carnivorous dinosaurs into your park and witness the chaos they create. These menacing predators will challenge any park manager. Don’t underestimate them, the success of your park is at stake.

• Herrerasaurus; this carnivorous dinosaur is from the Triassic period. Herrerasaurus has a long narrow skull with lots of serrated teeth for tearing into the flesh of its prey and has a special joint in its lower jaw to hold down its prey with a vice-like grip.

• Acrocanthosaurus; features large spines running along it’s back giving it a name that translates to “high-spined lizard”. This large muscular theropod is a force to be reckoned with.

• Proceratosaurus; may be a small two-legged dinosaur from the middle Jurassic period with a distinctive nasal crest, but it is also an ancient relative of the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex!

Reception

Reception of the game was mixed at first due to the fact that many felt that Frontier delivered an incomplete game, but most reviews have ended up positive as the game continually receives support via free updates and expansions. Unfortunately many people feel the game is still lacking in terms of decorations, flying reptiles, and marine reptiles as well as a small build space on each island. As such reviews lately have moved to being mixed once again while the game itself is considered to have received mostly positive praise over the continued updates and expansion.
