Jurassic World Evolution 2: Camp Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack Available Now

Jurassic World Evolution 2: Camp Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack


Following December’s Early Cretaceous Pack, Jurassic World Evolution 2: Camp Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack brings you even more spectacular prehistoric species to help expand your parks.

It’s our first pack to take inspiration from a hit animation series, “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.” Based on Universal Pictures, Amblin Entertainment, and DreamWorks Animation’s beloved Netflix series, Jurassic World Evolution 2’s latest DLC features prehistoric species that have stomped and stalked your screens across four seasons.

The exciting new pack adds to the game two entirely new dinosaurs, as well as two new variants for existing species, and eight eye-catching skins you can use to bring your park to life. So, let’s detail exactly what’s in the pack. First, it’s the Scorpios rex, a fearsome carnivore with blood-red eyes, charcoal-black scales, prominent spikes, and jagged teeth. It’s something of a landmark in genetic engineering, too, being one of Dr. Wu’s first hybrid creations. Expect aggression from this experimental dinosaur. And make sure your fences are secure, because trust me, you really don’t want a Scorpios rex on the loose.

Next, the Monolophosaurus, a medium-sized carnivore from the mid-Jurassic period. Its distinguished crest helps intensify roars and aids communication between other members of its species, just as you saw in the show. There’s the Ouranosaurus, a peaceful herbivore with a broad snout and tall spines on its back supporting a fatty, camel-like hump. A social species used to living large herds, you’ll want to ensure multiple individuals are sharing the same enclosure.

And rounding out the pack’s four prehistoric species is the Kentrosaurus, a docile herbivore covered in lethal-looking spikes. These protrude from its shoulders and hips, giving the Kentrosaurus an effective means of defense when threatened.

With bespoke behaviors and needs, not to mention their unique designs, the Camp Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack’s additions are ready to help you expand your park. And they’re joined by eight stunning skins, letting you customize existing inhabitants with brand new cosmetics. Again, these are all inspired by dinosaurs from “Camp Cretaceous.”

Jurassic World Evolution 2: Camp Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack

There’s a skin based on Bumpy the Ankylosaurus, three Baryonyx skins based on Grim, Limbo and Chaos, a Tyrannosaurus Rex skin based on Big Eatie, a Carnotaurus skin based on Toro, and two absolutely amazing Parasaurolophus Lux skins that are bioluminescent, so they actually glow in the dark. They really are a beautiful sight at night. I love how all of the skins came together, and I can’t wait for you to check them out in the game.

The team at Frontier spent a lot of time ensuring both the eight skins and four dinosaurs are as authentic as possible. To get that just right we had a blast watching back-to-back episodes of the show over countless hours and relished referring to detailed notes and behind-the-scenes research materials provided by our good friends at Universal and DreamWorks Animations. It was a lovely excuse to revisit how the campers dealt with the myriad of dangers that came their way after being abandoned on Isla Nublar.

Fans of the show will relish the experience of managing their favorite dinosaurs from “Camp Cretaceous.” Even if you’ve never watched a single episode of animated series before, there’s still a lot to love about our new Dinosaur Pack. I’m so excited for all of you to play it, and you can do so right now by purchasing it on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Showcase an array of outstanding new prehistoric species with the Jurassic World Evolution 2: Camp Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack. Inspired by Universal Pictures, Amblin Entertainment and DreamWorks Animation’s hit Netflix show, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, this DLC features two entirely new dinosaurs, two new variants for existing species, and eight eye-catching skins that players can use to bring their parks to life.

SCORPIOS REX
One of Dr. Henry Wu’s first hybrid creations, the Scorpios Rex is a truly fearsome carnivore. Blood-red eyes, charcoal-black scales, prominent spikes, and jagged, uneven teeth characterise this impressive species. Known for its aggressive nature, it was originally deemed unfit for display…until now.

MONOLOPHOSAURUS  
Named for the single crest adorning its skull, the Monolophosaurus is a medium-sized carnivore from the mid-Jurassic period. Its distinguished crest helps intensify roars and aids communication between Monolophosauruses.

OURANOSAURUS  (Variant)
The Ouranosaurus is a peaceful herbivore that lives in large herds. Keeping a single Ouranosaurus is not advised, as lone individuals have been known to break out of their enclosures and panic guests. The Ouranosaurus has a broad snout and tall spines on its back supporting a camel-like hump.

KENTROSAURUS  (Variant)
Despite being covered in lethal-looking spikes, the Kentrosaurus is actually a docile herbivore that uses its beak to bite off plant material. One of the smallest species of stegosaur, the Kentrosaurus defends itself when threatened using long spikes on each shoulder and smaller spikes protruding from its hips and tail.

8 NEW DINOSAUR SKINS
Bring the Baryonyx trio Grim, Limbo and Chaos, plus Toro the Carnotaurus, Bumpy the Ankylosaurus, and Big Eatie the Tyrannosaurus Rex to life in your parks, and entrance your guests with two glow-in-the-dark skins inspired by the Parasaurolophus Lux.
·         1 Ankylosaurus skin – Bumpy
·         3 Baryonyx skins – Grim, Limbo, Chaos
·         1 Carnotaurus skin – Toro
·         2 Parasaurolophus Lux skins – Lux 1 (glow in the dark), Lux 2 (glow in the dark) 
·         1 Tyrannosaurus rex skin – Big Eatie

Celebrate Disability Pride, Uplift Gaming and Disability Communities and Creators with Team Xbox

Published

The Xbox sphere sits on a black backdrop surrounded by the following icons: the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a brain, the American Sign Language sign for I Love You, a lightning bolt, a wheelchair, a seeing eye dog, prosthetic legs, and the original Xbox controller.


Team Xbox honors Disability Pride month for the first time, uplifting our extraordinary Gaming and Disability community. As a member of the disability community and an Xbox Accessibility Program Manager, I’d like to highlight the importance of celebrating people with disabilities.  Disability Pride is about acknowledging our own unique experiences with disability as a natural and beautiful aspect of human diversity. This includes all disabilities – both seen and unseen. This is our chance to highlight the vast spectrum of people represented by this moment, including advocates past and present working to create more inclusive and accessible experiences across all facets of life. This is an opportunity for Xbox to celebrate the more than 400 million video game players with disabilities around the world (source), as we aim to create a space where people with disabilities don’t feel the need to mask or cover their disabilities, but find connection among an inclusive gaming community that celebrates us as we are.

As someone with multiple invisible disabilities, the tendency to mask and cover resonates with me. We must work to remove this barrier for so many who feel that they must hide their disabilities to fit in or make others feel more comfortable. It took many years, but with the support of friends and family I’ve learned to embrace the importance of my mental health, chronic pain, and attention-deficit-related disabilities as key aspects of my identity. Like so many others in the disability community, it drives the work I find meaningful and has led to amazing opportunities to work on projects near and dear to my heart. This includes our new Mental Health Guidelines section of our Xbox Accessibility Guidelines that launched in May.   

My connection to this community began with the nonprofit work my father does with wounded veterans through Warfighter Engaged. It grew as I pursued a career in occupational therapy before joining Team Xbox. I have witnessed so many navigating their own journeys with temporary and permanent disabilities. For myself and many others, gaming commonly played a powerful role in unlocking opportunities to connect socially with others and build a community of support through fun and engaging mediums.  Gaming is a staple of modern culture today, and it should be inclusive of everyone who wants to play. This inspires my work and the work of my team, as we remain vigilant in our dedication to helping the disability community feel heard, included, and supported in accessing gaming in a way that brings them joy and community.

As we honor Disability Pride, here are a few ways that Xbox is celebrating and uplifting our Gaming and Disability community in July and beyond:

Discover Games Curated by Disability and Neurodiversity Communities at Microsoft


Four Xbox game title images sit on a black backdrop surrounded by the following icons: the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a brain, the American Sign Language sign for I Love You, a lightning bolt, a wheelchair, a seeing eye dog, prosthetic legs, and the original Xbox controller. Titles include Citizen Sleeper, Forza Horizon 5, The Vale and Fractured Minds.

People with disabilities and who are neurodiverse are among the talented people that work on and play games, and have been for as long as games have existed. During July and beyond, Microsoft Store on Xbox or Windows visitors and Xbox Game Pass members can easily access games created by and reflecting the experiences of neurodiversity and people with disabilities related to chronic or complex illness, mobility, hearing, vision, speech, learning, and mental health. 

Check out a few highlights from the Xbox and Windows games collection that include creators, leads, experiences, and character creation options that include features like prosthetic limbs. 

Citizen Sleeper (Available with Xbox Game Pass) – Roleplaying in the ruins of interplanetary capitalism, this game explores the complexity of a body that functions differently than the mind. In order to keep your artificial body alive, you must acquire technology that is high in demand and hard to come by, creating a playable experience that is parallel to the obstacles of having a disability in today’s modern world.
