Additions to Dinosaur Behaviours
After looking at all of your feedback since launch, we’ve been working on improvements to dinosaurs and their behaviours. We’re happy to announce that we’re adding two highly requested additions: Group Leaders, which means dinosaurs will now look for an existing group leader and follow their behaviour, actively keeping the dinosaurs together as a group.
Group Leaders can change during leadership contests, and the dinosaur with the highest prestige will lead the group. Groups try to stick together when fleeing from danger and when drinking, eating or sleeping. They can also be herded with the vehicles!
Another addition to the dinosaurs is their sleeping behaviour, which means dinosaurs will now take a nap when they are comfortable and idle. This also combines with groups, which will now often sleep at the same time.
We’ve added a day/night cycle to all game modes to enable a more dynamic environment. This feature will be instantly available from the gameplay setting menu in both Challenge and Sandbox modes, but for the Career islands it’ll have to be unlocked as a setting by achieving 5 stars on each island. We can’t wait to see how this challenges you or what kind of creative images you can make on each island!
Higher Capacity Feeders
We’ve added larger capacity feeder types which require less resupply for you! This means you can worry less about your dinosaurs’ needs whilst attending other tasks. Please note this will not be applicable to the goat feeders.
There’s a bunch of new contracts for you to get stuck into! Can you sell your dinosaur with a certain gene modification, or get the infamy rating to go through the roof?
Jurassic World Evolution is available now for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
