After the amazing reaction to the first Jurassic World Evolution story expansion – Secrets of Dr Wu – we knew we wanted to do more and give players new ways to experience the game. We knew we wanted to tell more stories, and we knew we wanted to try something new with Jurassic World Evolution’s gameplay. That’s how we decided to bring to life Claire Dearing’s vision of a new home for dinosaurs, and give you a whole new story-driven campaign to explore.
In our second major expansion, Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary, we wanted to shift the focus of the gameplay away from running a commercial park to creating an environment where dinosaurs can truly thrive. Launching today on Microsoft Store for Xbox One, Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary is an all-new game expansion that introduces two new maps, new campaign missions starring Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, new gameplay mechanics, and new dinosaurs to Jurassic World Evolution.
Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary is a ‘what if´ scenario picking up from the events of “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Isla Nublar’s volcanic Mount Sibo is due to erupt at any moment, putting into motion a race against time to rescue the island’s dinosaurs and rehome them in a new facility on the island of Sanctuary. Claire Dearing will guide players through a new campaign featuring a range of missions across Isla Nublar and Sanctuary.
When you arrive on Nublar you’ll find the dinosaurs afflicted with an unknown illness, which must be researched and cured before they can be safely moved to Sanctuary. The focus is on welfare, not profit, and the dinosaurs you cure and rescue on Nublard are the dinosaurs you’ll take with you to Sanctuary.
We’re giving you more control over the welfare of your dinosaurs with Jurassic World Evolution’s new paleobotany system. For the first time you’ll be able to delve into the specific needs of each herbivore by providing tailored food sources that can be researched and then grown in the new Greenhouse facility. Feeding the herbivores in the park authentic and beneficial plants will give prestige and lifespan bonuses, rewarding you for prioritising dinosaur welfare.
Once operations on Sanctuary have been established, the new Jurassic Tour building can be used to create custom tours using the new truck vehicle that include dynamic audio tours based upon your enclosures. You can use the tour to get up close to the new dinosaurs: the tyrannosaur-like Albertosaurus, the stocky and armoured Euoplocephalus and the gentle Ouranosaurus.
Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary launches alongside a free update for all players, adding a host of new features including new terrain and scenery options, new spinosaurid care features and improvements to the Gyrosphere system.
