Cambridge, UK – December 9, 2021 Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) released today the first PDLC for Jurassic World Evolution 2 - the Jurassic World Evolution 2: Early Cretaceous Pack, out now on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store and GeForce Now, PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®4 and Xbox One for a suggested retail price of £5.99/$7.99/€7.99.
Following the critically acclaimed release of Jurassic World Evolution 2, players can discover an enchanting array of early-era species with Jurassic World Evolution 2: Early Cretaceous Pack. Offering four thrilling ancient animals, including land-dwelling dinosaurs, marine and flying reptiles, as well as a host of new dinosaur and reptile dig sites to unearth, budding palaeontologists will be able to enhance their parks with these new star attractions.
Named after the King of the Titans, the Kronosaurus is one of the largest ever pliosaurs; a carnivorous species of marine reptile with powerful, paddle-like flippers to help capture its prey. Equally as impressive is the Dsungaripterus, a stocky, stout pterosaur easily identified by its comparatively huge head, which features long, upcurved jaws and a distinctive crest. Paleontologists speculate this crest might have served as a rudder when flying.
In addition to these new marine and flying reptiles, players can welcome the striking Wuerhosaurus, with its squat stance that places it low to the ground for it to feed on vegetation and undergrowth, and the small but mighty Minmi, an armoured Ankylosaur that boasts horizontally oriented bone plates along the sides of its back, protecting it well from predators. These majestic marvels, each with their own set of dynamic behaviours and needs, will thrill guests and bring new challenges to players’ parks.
The PDLC launches alongside a free update offering existing players a range of new features and enhancements. These include the addition of new buildings themed after both the Jurassic Park and the Department of Fish and Wildlife building sets, including lagoons and aviaries, and inclusion of the five campaign maps in Sandbox mode. Customisation and creation is now even quicker and deeper, allowing players to overlap shrubs to make more natural-looking undergrowth, and with the all new randomise option, players can opt for a broad variety of pattern and colour combinations when bringing dinosaurs to life in batches.
