We hope you’re not finished with Jurassic World Evolution just yet, because it certainly is not finished with you as details have been released on their next free update, due for release on 13th September.
The biggest new feature of Update 1.4 is a brand new Challenge Mode, something the community has been requesting frequently. These challenges will still take place on Isla Nublar with an adjustable difficulty – easy, medium, hard or the ultimate challenge of Jurassic difficulty. Featuring new mechanics such as Hammond Foundation fees, contract cancellation penalties, personal best completion times and unique achievements, this could be Jurassic World Evolution’s biggest challenge to date!
There are a hefty load of new sandbox options added to the game to tailor it to your style such as lifespan toggle – meaning your dinosaurs you’ve grown way too attached to can no longer die of old age, cash level toggle, a variety of difficulty settings and feeder resupply and power toggle – no more ranger jobs or running out of power.
Lighting options are also being added for those that achieve five stars on each island in Career Mode, allowing you to play at different times during the day. For those that utilise the photo mode, these new lighting effects will make your photos even more special. On top of all these, new contract types are being added for all divisions and additional viewing cameras – including a first-person view on the monorail – so you can see your park in all its glory.
Interestingly, the sizes of some of the carnivores have been amended and you can see below which ones. This is to bring them more in line with the Jurassic franchise following player feedback:
- Scale down the Ceratosaurus from 9.6m (current) to 9m
- Scale down the Tyrannosaurus Rex from 14m (current) to 13.5m
- Scale up the Spinosaurus from 13.7m (current) to 15m (making her taller but less bulky than the T-Rex)
- Scale up the Giganotosaurus from 12m (current) to 13.5m
This patch will also include several fixes and general tweaks to the game, with a full list of release notes due on 13th September, alongside the release of the patch for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Will this be enough to tempt you back into the game? Were you one of those people who were unhappy with the size of their T-Rex compared to their Spinosaurus? As always, let us know in the comments below!
