Jurassic World Evolution gets 'Secrets of Dr. Wu' DLC this month

Frontier Developments is a popular studio that has a long history of producing great experiences. The team did wonders with Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster, so it's no surprise that the studio is tackling the challenges of a Jurassic Park game. Jurassic World Evolution is a park-building experience along the lines of titles like Cities: Skylines.

Unfortunately, the game launched to a lukewarm reception from customers and critics alike. The repetitive nature of Jurassic World Evolution was the main drawback. However, in an effort to improve the game, Frontier Developments is releasing more content on November 20, 2018. "Secrets of Dr. Wu" expands the Jurassic World Evolution campaign with new missions and an all-new Jurassic World story. It costs $14.99 or similar worldwide.

The download gives players control over two hidden research facilities on Isla Muerta and Isla Tacaño where Dr. Henry Wu is developing a new generation of hybrid dinosaurs. Players will confront an elevated level of chaos and threat caused by Wu's creations as they work alongside the doctor and discover new dig sites, facility upgrades, and research opportunities.

Update 1.5 is coming soon too, which add new dinosaur behaviors, a day-night cycle, higher capacity feeders, and new contracts. Hopefully this upcoming update will bring players back and entice new ones to pick up the game. In our review, we stated that the title was a "spectacularly mundane park management" experience. Jurassic World Evolution is available for $59.99 on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. It also runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X.
