Sanctuary – a paradise built to support and sustain multiple species. The idea is to relocate and rehabilitate in order to release them. Mt. Sibo could erupt at any time, so time is of the essence.
Former Jurassic World Operations Manager, Claire Dearing is tasked with this mammoth job. You’ll need to work together in order to save a species faced with extinction. Introducing a new campaign, Jurassic World Evolution: Claire’s Sanctuary offers new buildings, features, and 3 new dinosaurs:
- Albertosaurus – A smaller relative to the T-rex, a carnivorous predator that will make a great addition to any park. Although they are from the same family of dinosaurs as the T-rex they are much smaller.
- Euoplocephalus a genus of the Ankylosaurus aka the “Anky” whilst they are herbivorous their dense skin and club like tail made them a formidable foe and fully capable of defending themselves when required.
- Ouranosaurus – Measuring between 23 to 27ft these herbivorous weigh in at approximately 4 tons. That’s a lot of dinosaurs to impress your guests with!
New Building: Greenhouse
The DLC also adds the new greenhouse building where you can grow and research a variety of new plants for your island’s reptile inhabitants.
There is also a new feeder featured in the DLC that contains a variety of new plants and fruit for herbivores, as can be seen in the new trailer:
How much does this DLC cost?
The DLC costs £12.99 / $14.99 and seems to have annoyed some of its fan base with this price. As mentioned in the review of the game compared to Planet coaster also made by Frontier there is a massive lack of content and freedom of creativity within Jurassic World: Evolution so paying for the ability to have 3 new dino’s 1 new building and a new map somewhat adds salt to the wound.
The good news is, some of the new content will be coming in the form of a free patch, so it’s not all bad news. Patch 1.8 will bring a range of new features which includes:
- Terrain & Scenery items: This will add the ability to add cosmetic rocks, tress and shrubs to your park. You will also have the ability to change the terrain, but according to the official patch notes that will only be on some islands, which again is somewhat disappointing.
- Spinosaurid care: This is a minor change to make spino’s preferable towards wetter environments as they would have been, it will also change their dietary preferences to fish from meat.
- Gyrosphere Improvements: Another minor update in my opinion. Gates now automatically open, meaning you can now do park-wide tours, instead of having this limited to just one enclosure. Although I do wonder if this will make dinosaur visibility almost too easy and cheap now.
- The patch notes also state the 1.8 patch will also include a variety of bug fixes on top of the changes listed above.
