Jurassic World Evolution 1.4 Update Coming September 13

Frontier Developments is happy to announce that the next update for Jurassic World Evolution is coming on September 13, 2018. This free update will include a number of new features, including: a new Challenge Mode, more sandbox options, more lighting options, new contracts, new cameras and more.

Here are a few of the noteable changes coming:

All New Challenge Mode

  • A new feature greatly requested within the community is Challenge Mode (separate from Story Mode). You’ll find yourself with very little starting money as you progress through Isla Nublar, with difficulty levels that you can adjust before you start (easy, medium, hard and Jurassic). We’re also adding some new mechanics like Hammond Foundation fees, contract cancellation penalties, and personal best completion times. You can unlock new skins (and achievements/trophies!) when you complete Challenge Mode for the first time and also when you beat the ultimate challenge, Jurassic difficulty! Good luck!

More Sandbox Options

  • Isla Nublar is the dedicated sandbox island, and the dev-team is adding more options so you can play the way you want to; you can toggle these settings in the Options Menu at any time. A few exciting additions are the lifespan toggle (dinosaurs no longer die of old age), cash level toggle (decide how much cash is available to you), various difficulty settings (dinosaur variety, rating, guest count, and economics), feeder resupply toggle (no more pesky ranger jobs!), and power toggle (no power stations or power requirements needed, as well as no power outages).

Lighting Options for Career Islands

  • Once you have achieved 5 stars on each island in Career Mode, you’ll unlock different lighting options: default, dawn, dusk, and night. You can now revisit your islands and choose which setting you want to play in, which should give you some nice new challenges and more opportunities for gorgeous photographs.

New Contract Types

  • The dev-team is adding some more variety of contracts for all Divisions, which will have you working to improve guest coverage, increase dinosaur visibility and rating, and achieve higher levels of profit for your island. Make sure you’re up to the task before accepting them!

New Viewing Cameras 

  • You’ll also noticed that the team has added new camera features to the viewing gallery and viewing platform so you can watch your enclosures from your guests’ perspectives, as well as a first-person camera to the monorail train - positioned at a height above the train that will go over stations.

Korean and Italian Language Support

  • Korean and Italian Voice Overs and subtitles are being broght to the game, so players from those regions can enjoy the game with their native language. 

Size Matters

  • The feedback regarding some of the carnivores’ sizes in the game has been noted and changes are being to the following dino’s to bring them more in line with the Jurassic franchise:
  • 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

Additional Features

  • Other than what’s above, there are also several new things based on player feedback such as a camera zoom toggle, the option to cancel a research project or incubation, the option to revert all the genes to default, new dinosaur bio information in the Genome Library (health and comfort requirements), shortcuts to research items from the Upgrade and Build menus, and more general fixes and tweaks to the game. 

Well the, it seems that the developers are listening to player feeed back, and that they recognize some changes need to be made to make their game even better.  We will be watching closely as these changes are implemented.
