Frontier Developments is a well-regarded studio which has a long history and has produced amazing experiences. The studio did wonders with Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster, so it's no surprise that the team 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.
Today, the developer released a new update on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. According to Frontier, this update introduces three new dig sites, a cast of new dinosaurs which you can bring to your island, new "InGen" database entries, and a number of bug fixes and improvements to the base game. There's a lot of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film content in the download.
The main changes with this free update as listed below.
- Added new dinosaurs from Fallen Kingdom like the Indoraptor, Baryonyx, Stygimoloch, Carnotaurus, Allosaurus and Sinoceratops.
- Added and updated dig sites to support new dinosaurs in regions like England, Argentina and China.
- Added new characters from Fallen Kingdom to the InGen database like Iris Carroll, Benjamin Lockwood, Franklin Webb, Maisie Lockwood, Zia Rodriguezo, Eli Mills, Ken Wheatley, and Gunnar Eversoll.
- Various performance and stability improvements.
- Animation improvements.
- Dinosaur ragdoll enhancements.
- Fix for dinosaurs stuck in panicked and terrorizing states.
Unfortunately, Jurassic World Evolution still needs a lot more content so here's hoping that the studio will keep on expanding the game. In our review, we stated that the title was a "spectacularly mundane park management" experience.

We need more ways to build attractions at the park.
The game has not hooked me in, though it is still early. I'd rather go back to Surviving Mars for when I am in the mood for a sim game.
It's still more entertaining than the movie lol. First Jurassic movie I didn't like.
