Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu Coming 20 November!
Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu is coming on 20 November, 2018! New missions, locations, and dinosaurs are waiting to be unlocked by you, and will offer a new and intriguing side to the story that you haven't experienced in the game before!
Dr. Wu is looking for park managers with a track record in running a successful organisation and experience with the design of hybrid dinosaurs. Earn his trust, and you will embark on a business venture together which include all the features of this new content.
If you accept his mission, a new area will unlock on Isla Muerta, where Dr. Wu is working in secret to research and breed never-before-seen hybrid creatures... If you do well, you can unlock a host of new research options and upgrades. There's a lot more to the story, but we won't spoil the fun for you here!
Aside from a whole new narrative for you to follow, there'll also be five new dinosaurs to provide additional challenges with their own behaviours and needs: the Troodon (which has a poison bite attack), the giant herbivore Olorotitan, and Dr. Wu's special hybrids: Ankylodocus, Stegoceratops, and Spinoraptor will all be making their appearance here. Be careful, some of them have sharp teeth...
There will be new genetic research items such as comfort genes, which will let you manipulate how tolerant dinosaurs are to their conditions beyond the expected traits, and, for the selected few Dr. Wu deems successful (or worthy...) enough, you can unlock the Indominus Rex camouflage gene; upon breeding an Indominus with this modification, it can camouflage when it exits its Creation Lab, hunts, panics, is idle, or is in a forest. Don't let this one out of your sight!
Finally, there will be some new building upgrades like additional Incubation Speed increase or Speed Increase for the transport team, plus an Advanced Storm Defense station to provide better protection against rough weather conditions.
Do you think you have what it takes?
Secrets of Dr. Wu will launch alongside our recently announced free update 1.5 on 20 November, 2018. You can get it from Steam, PlayStation or Xbox Store (depending on which platform you play the base game on) for £12.99 ($14.99, €14.99) - please note that it is completely optional for you to purchase, as update 1.5 (including Group Leaders, dynamic Day/Night Cycle, etc.) will launch for free for all players. Please note that if you do purchase Secrets of Dr. Wu, you'll need to own the base game in order to play.
We'll be doing a launch livestream on 20 November at 3PM UTC over on www.twitch.tv/frontierdevelopments, so we hope to see you there! In the meantime, you can check our November streaming schedule here and join us in the chat if you can!
