Hello Park Managers!
We're pleased to announce that the Jurassic World Evolution 2: Dominion Malta Expansion is now available, alongside Update 5!
You can also purchase the Jurassic World Evolution 2: Dominion Bundle.
The Dominion Malta Expansion will introduce you to four magnificent new species that we're sure your guests will love. You'll discover the fierce Atrociraptor, the powerful Lystrosaurus, the unique Oviraptor, and one of the smallest Tyrannosauroids to have ever existed, the Moros Intrepidus. These incredible species are bound to make an impressive addition to any park.
Known as one of the 'designer dinosaurs', the Atrociraptor is arguably even more dangerous than its Velociraptor cousins. Of course, we'll also be providing you with Atrociraptor's iconic Jurassic World Dominion skins: Ghost, Red, Tiger, and Panthera!
Notable for its tusks and horned beak, we're sure your guests will be thrilled to see Lystrosaurus' powerful forelimbs and an unusual-shaped skull in your parks.
Oviraptor possesses an incredibly effective jaw for their size, and was named 'egg thief' because they were originally thought to steal other species' eggs! It's since been understood to be an omnivore, though. With a distinctive head crest and feathers, your guests are going to love Oviraptor's unique look!
Moros Intrepidus was one of the smallest Tyrannosauroids to have ever existed, and is only a fraction of the size of its famous relative, the T. rex. This quick and nimble hunter, Moros Intrepidus is a formidable addition to any park.
All of the dinosaurs included in this pack come with 12 body colour and 7 skin patterns each, and we can't wait to see how you incorporate them into your park!
Based on the iconic dinosaurs from Jurassic World Dominion's stunning Malta setting, Allosaurus, Dimorphodon and Iguanodon will all have 2022 variants. Carnotaurus will also have a 2022 skin!
In Jurassic Evolution 2: Dominion Malta Expansion, you'll get to experience a brand new campaign, which will see you leading a new enterprise in Malta, set before the events of Jurassic World Dominion. You'll be working alongside Cabot Finch and key figures from the film, including Kayla Watts (voiced by DeWanda Wise), Soyona Santos (voiced by Dichen Lachman), Barry Sembène (voiced by Omar Sy), and Lewis Dodgson (voiced by Campbell Scott). You'll set up parks across three new Mediterranean locations, acquiring new species, eggs, and genome data via the Dinosaur Exchange in the place of Expeditions and Fossil Extractions.
Progress is persistent across all three locations, including your research – switch between them on the fly, or even move dinosaurs from one island to the other to optimise each of them using the Cargo Ship. Money and scientists will be independent per island, though, so you'll need to ensure each one is running as well as possible to complete this new campaign scenario - we're sure you'll be up to the task!
You will be able to experience these three locations during campaign mode, and will also be able to enjoy each of these new islands in Sandbox Mode as separate maps. Alongside these maps, you'll also be able to utilise all new Malta buildings and decorations.
Releasing alongside the Dominion Malta Expansion is Update 5, which is a free update for everyone who owns Jurassic World Evolution 2. This includes some exciting additions as well as some quality of life updates and bug fixes, as well as the ability to import saves from PlayStation 4 consoles to PlayStation 5 consoles, and all you need to do to access this content is update your game.
Update 5 includes the 5 DFW Campaign maps as Challenge Levels, which will become accessible once you've earned earns 3, 5, 7, 9 and 2 stars respectively across all maps in Challenge Mode. You'll also be dealing with some brand new Challenge Conditions, which will vary across levels - but don't worry, we're sure you'll be up to the challenge!
You'll also notice some brand new behaviours for tiny dinosaurs in Update 5, including group attacks for Moros Intrepidus and Compsognathus on guests & goats, as well as changes to navigation logic, so that Lystrosaurus, Oviraptor, Moros Intrepidus and Compsognathus will navigate around water. There will also be some changes to collision logic for Lystrosaurus, Oviraptor, Moros Intrepidus and Compsognathus, so that they no longer collide with guests or vehicles.
Update 5 will also include some changes to UI, including seeing the outlines of territories and dinosaurs of the same species when transporting a dinosaur, as well as an icon above which dinosaurs are liked, disliked, or neutral to that species. You'll also notice a new 'ailment and tranquilise' icon when controlling the Capture Team or adding a new task, as well as earlier fight notifications and a notification when Park Tours are disabled by a storm. See the patch notes below for more information on some of the additional UI updates coming your way in Update 5!
Of course there are also some quality of life changes to come in this latest free update! These include Tour vehicles honking at dinosaurs blocking their way, as well as ensuring sleeping dinosaurs are reactive when being honked at, and territory decaying more slowly near desirable feeders that are inside the territory.
Finally, we've also added support for NVIDIA Streamline, DLSS3 and NVIDIA Reflex, and the ability to import your PS4 saves to the PS5 version of the game.
The full list of changes and quality of life enhancements can be found in the Update Notes.
We hope you enjoy the Dominion Malta Expansion and free Update, Park Managers!
