Jurassic World Evolution 2 Early Cretaceous Pack DLC arrives next week
The first DLC for Jurassic World Evolution 2 will introduce four Cretaceous animals to the game, Frontier Developments has announced.
Players who purchase the Early Cretaceous Pack can add the Wuerhosaurus, Minmi, Dsungaripterus, and Kronosaurus to their park. Get a brief rundown of each new addition, courtesy of the developer, below:
- Kronosaurus – is named after the King of the Titans, Kronos, as it is one of the largest ever pliosaurs, a carnivorous species of marine reptiles with powerful, paddle-like flippers to help it capture its prey.
- Dsungaripterus – is a small and stout pterosaur, easily identified by its distinctive head crest and its long, upcurved jaw.
- Minmi – is a small, tank-like dinosaur belonging to the ankylosaur family. Unlike other ankylosaurians, it has horizontally oriented bone plates running along the sides of its back, making the Minmi well-protected against predators.
- Wuerhosaurus – is part of the stegosaurid family of dinosaurs. It sits low to the ground in order to feed on lower vegetation and uses tail spikes as a defence against any potential predators.
Accompanying the DLC on December 9th will be a new update for the game that introduces buildings and fences from the Department of Fish and Wildlife to Sandbox Mode, campaign levels in Sandbox Mode, flattened Sandbox levels, and the ability for flying reptiles to perch on rocks. Additionally, a few balance changes are being made, including a reduction in the frequency of storms and disease outbreaks in Chaos Theory.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 is available now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
