Earlier this year we launched Jurassic World Evolution and gave players the chance to build and manage their own Jurassic World. We were blown away by the fantastic reaction, and we knew we wanted to give players even more control, more gameplay, and more story delving even deeper into the Jurassic mythology.
Launching today on Microsoft Store, The Secrets of Dr. Wu is an all-new game expansion that brings new campaign missions, new gameplay, new dinosaurs and a new story to Jurassic World Evolution.
Over 25 years ago John Hammond’s grand vision and Dr. Henry Wu’s brilliance brought dinosaurs to life in “Jurassic Park.” Today the world demands more than Hammond’s reality; it wants more teeth. Dr. Wu’s response was revealed in 2015’s “Jurassic World” with Indominus Rex.
Indominus Rex was a fearsome creature who rampaged through Jurassic World and eventually challenged the raptor pack and the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex for supremacy in the park. Following the park’s closure, Wu’s second secret hybrid was revealed in “Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom” in the Indoraptor.
Both of these deadly hybrids are available in Jurassic World Evolution. Where many other dinosaurs have adapted to their modern surroundings, Wu’s hybrids remain untameable creatures, and a true test for even the most capable park managers.
In the Secrets of Dr. Wu, you will join Dr. Wu in two new locations hidden within the Las Cinco Muertes archipelago to develop a new generation of never-before-seen hybrid dinosaurs. BD Wong returns to the iconic role in a story that reveals more about what drives the doctor and the challenges he faces. You’ll build and manage two new maps, take greater control over your dinosaurs’ genomes and face your toughest challenge yet in containing Wu’s secret creations.
Dr. Wu’s new hybrids join Jurassic World Evolution’s dinosaur roster alongside two real-life dinosaurs: the Olorotitan and Troodon, with its deadly poison bite.
Players will also unlock powerful new tools for genetic manipulation, giving you more control than ever before over your dinosaurs’ needs and desires. With careful manipulation you’ll alter aspects like their habitat requirements or their social and population levels, allowing even the most solitary of dinosaurs to co-habit peacefully with their own kind.
Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu launches alongside a free update for all players, adding new campaign contracts, an unlockable day/night cycle and, yes, group leaders. You’ll now see social dinosaurs form groups and follow the dominant females around their paddocks or on the loose.
We’ve made it easy to jump into the new locations and story at almost any point in the Jurassic World Evolution campaign, so we hope you’ll explore the Secrets of Dr. Wu on Xbox One.
