Need something different in your Jurassic Park – something that tickles your fancy, perhaps? The Feathered Species Pack for Jurassic World Evolution 2 is just that.
We’ve been tending to our parks in Jurassic World Evolution 2 for well over a year already, more so should you take into account the hours spent in the original Jurassic World Evolution too. And in that time we’ve been wowed by a host of the finest dinosaurs; whether that be through the base game or the DLC packs like the Early Cretaceous Pack, that of Dominion Biosyn or Dominion Malta. Now though we get access to even more beasts – this time of the feathered variety.
Available right now to add into and build out Jurassic World Evolution 2 is the Feathered Species Pack on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC (Steam, Epic, GeForce Now, Windows). It’s priced at £5.99 from the Xbox Store – and you should expect to pay roughly that elsewhere – and adds in all-new dinosaurs for you to enjoy.
It goes without saying that the Feathered Species Pack focuses on, well, feathered species, coming complete with three land-dwellers plus a flyer (we always love a flyer), each one complete with some amazing plumage.
So what should you expect to find trampling into your park? Well, the Feathered Species pack adds in the densely coated carnivore Yutyrannus; the agile movements of the diminutive Jeholopterus; the intimidating stature of Deinocheirus; and the striped tail of Sinosauropteryx.
Fuller details of each as follows:
- · Yutyrannus has a name that translates as ‘feathered tyrant’ due to it being one of the largest known feathered dinosaurs to eat meat. It has a striking nasal crest used for display purposes, and a light yet dense coat to provide insulation when the temperature drops.
- · Jeholopterus is an impressively quick and nimble flying reptile, and the smallest airborne species in the entire game. Palaeontologists have found only one specimen to date, but it ranks among the best preserved of any pterosaur, giving us a fascinating insight into its looks and behaviour.
- · Deinocheirus is one of the largest ornithomimosaurs ever discovered, with arms longer than those of any bipedal dinosaur. This distinctive prehistoric species, with its duck-like bill and broad hump on its back, cuts an intimidating figure, despite foraging exclusively on plants.
- · Sinosauropteryx, a small, meat-eating dinosaur covered with delicate, hair-like feathers and waving a striped tail. Sinosauropteryx works together to hunt in packs. It was discovered in 1996, and its ancient remains were the first to not only suggest the existence of feathered dinosaurs, but hint at their potential to have colouration.
Further to that and running alongside the new paid DLC is a free update for the game. It’s this which brings exciting new features and enhancements, including the new Log and Dome Viewing Galleries, a Cinematic Camera Mode, new Zipline variants, quality-of-life updates, and more.
With a base game in your digital library, you can head to your favoured digital store and grab a download of the new Jurassic World Evolution 2 Feathered Species Pack. It’s on Xbox (from the Xbox Store), PlayStation and PC.
