Jurassic World Evolution 2 is going to release later this year and bring some pretty major improvements to the formula of its excellent predecessor. Since its announcement, Frontier Developments has spoken about some of the biggest improvements coming to the game, such as larger maps, improved dinosaur interactions, new biomes, and more, and in a recently released developer diary, they provided more details on that front.
Many new improvements are detailed, such as new biomes, one of which will be set in a desert environment (which, in turn, will bring new weather patterns, such as sandstorms). New dinosaurs are also going to be included, of course, and some avian animals are shown in the video. Meanwhile, details are also provided on the four separate modes that will be available in the game- Campaign, Challenge, Sandbox, and the new Chaos Theory mode (a mode full of what-if scenarios from the movies).
Improved dinosaur interactions are also detailed, while one new mechanic that is revealed is that dinosaur incubating and hatching is now done by scientists, whom you have to recruit and manage. Territories are also a thing now, and this will change dynamically based on the dinosaurs occupying the enclosures, and in turn, will impact dinosaur interactions and behaviours as well. Improved guest features, scenery items, and much more are also detailed. Take a look at the video below for more details.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 launches later this year for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A release date hasn’t yet been announced.
