En plus d’une assez importante mise à jour 1.5 devant arriver prochainement, et d’avoir semble-t-il franchit cet été le cap du million d’exemplaires vendus, voici que se dévoile aujourd’hui une première extension pour ce jeu permettant de simuler et gérer un parc de dinosaures.
DLC qui ajoutera donc une nouvelle histoire dans laquelle un visionnaire Dr Wu érige la manipulation génétique au rang d’un art transcendant la science, le miracle de la vie, que dis-je l’évolution elle-même ! Concrètement cela se traduira par de nouvelles missions, des zones supplémentaires à construire, de nouvelles voies de recherche scientifique à explorer, ou encore cinq nouveaux dinosaures (le Troodon, l’Olorotitan, l’Ankylodocus, le Stegoceratops et le Spinoraptor) avec leurs propres défis et comportements inédits.
Il serait curieux de voir quel visiteur du parc voudrait discuter en tête à tête de la conception spinozienne de la liberté avec un spinoraptor hybride maintenu en cage mais soudain doué de conscience, réalisant ainsi sa place réelle dans l’univers, et pas uniquement dans la chaîne alimentaire. Mais vu le profond sens inné de l’humour qu’ont les dinosaures, je digresse probablement.

Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu Coming 20 November!
This is Dr. Henry Wu speaking. I know you’ve been working hard across the islands to design and breed the most awe-inspiring and, sometimes, fear-inducing creatures. You’ve had success, I can tell, and I like your methods. So I’m here to ask for your assistance. I’ve got a very, very special project for you, should you choose to join me in my efforts. Think about it, but do know: the reward we will reap is… compelling, to say the least.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu is coming on 20 November, 2018! New missions, locations, and dinosaurs are waiting to be unlocked by you, and will offer a new and intriguing side to the story that you haven’t experienced in the game before!
Dr. Wu is looking for park associates with a track record in running a successful organisation and experience with the design of hybrid dinosaurs. Earn his trust, and you will embark on a business venture together which include all the features of this new content.
If you accept his mission, a new area will unlock on Isla Muerta, where Dr. Wu is working in secret to research and breed never-before-seen hybrid creatures… If you do well, you can unlock a host of new research options and upgrades. There’s a lot more to the story, but we won’t spoil the fun for you here!
Aside from a whole new narrative for you to follow, there’ll also be five new dinosaurs to provide additional challenges with their own behaviours and needs: the Troodon (which has a poison bite attack), the giant herbivore Olorotitan, and Dr. Wu’s special hybrids: Ankylodocus, Stegoceratops, and Spinoraptor will all be making their appearance here. Be careful, some of them have sharp teeth…
There will be new genetic research items such as comfort genes, which will let you manipulate how tolerant dinosaurs are to their conditions beyond the expected traits, and, for the selected few Dr. Wu deems successful (or worthy…) enough, you can unlock the Indominus Rex camouflage gene; upon breeding an Indominus with this modification, it can camouflage when it exits its Creation Lab, hunts, panics, is idle, or is in a forest. Don’t let this one out of your sight!
Finally, there will be some new building upgrades like additional Incubation Speed increase or Speed Increase for the transport team, plus an Advanced Storm Defense station to provide better protection against rough weather conditions.
Do you think you have what it takes?
Secrets of Dr. Wu will launch alongside our recently announced free update 1.5 on 20 November, 2018. You can get it from Steam, PlayStation or Xbox Store (depending on which platform you play the base game on) for £12.99 ($14.99, €14.99) – please note that it is completely optional for you to purchase, as update 1.5 (including Group Leaders, dynamic Day/Night Cycle, etc.) will launch for free for all players. Please note that if you do purchase Secrets of Dr. Wu, you’ll need to own the base game in order to play.
We’ll be doing a livestream on 20 November at 3PM UTC over on www.twitch.tv/frontierdevelopments, so we hope to see you there! In the meantime, you can check our November streaming schedule here[forums.frontier.co.uk] and join us in the chat if you can!
Jurassic World Evolution Update 1.5 coming soon!
Hello park managers!
We’re excited to share some amazing news with you: the next update for Jurassic World Evolution is on its way to the islands!
More importantly, we are combining the free update with some very special paid content, which we will reveal more of later this week! First, we wanted to tell you all about what’s coming for free to all JWE players:
Additions to Dinosaur Behaviours
After looking at all of your feedback since launch, we’ve been working on improvements to dinosaurs and their behaviours. We’re happy to announce that we’re adding two highly requested additions: Group Leaders, which means dinosaurs will now look for an existing group leader and follow their behaviour, actively keeping the dinosaurs together as a group. Group Leaders can change during leadership contests, and the dinosaur with the highest prestige will lead the group. Groups try to stick together when fleeing from danger and when drinking, eating or sleeping. They can also be herded with the vehicles!
Another addition to the dinosaurs is their sleeping behaviour, which means dinosaurs will now take a nap when they are comfortable and idle. This also combines with groups, which will now often sleep at the same time.
We’ve added a day/night cycle to all game modes to enable a more dynamic environment. This feature will be instantly available from the gameplay setting menu in both Challenge and Sandbox modes, but for the Career islands it’ll have to be unlocked as a setting by achieving 5 stars on each island. We can’t wait to see how this challenges you or what kind of creative images you can make on each island!
Higher Capacity Feeders
We’ve added larger capacity feeder types which require less resupply for you! This means you can worry less about your dinosaurs’ needs whilst attending other tasks. Please note this will not be applicable to the goat feeders.
There’s a bunch of new contracts for you to get stuck into! Can you sell your dinosaur with a certain gene modification, or get the infamy rating to go through the roof?
We’re very excited about this update, which will also include a number of minor tweaks and fixes, and we will have more information about the additional paid content this week! In the meantime, you can check out our weekly livestreams on https://www.twitch.tv/frontierdevelopments!
More coming soon!
Jurassic World Evolution has sold over 1 million copies
Dino-mogul simulator Jurassic World Evolution has sold over 1 million units since releasing just over five weeks ago on June 12.
That figure includes digital and physical sales across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with developer Frontier explaining digital sales in particular have been ‘strong.’
“We are really pleased with Jurassic World Evolution and are delighted to have crossed the 1 million unit threshold so quickly,” said Frontier CEO, David Braben.
“There is no doubt that initial sales have benefited from the worldwide awareness created by the film release, but it’s the quality of the game that’s really important.”
