Jurassic World Evolution 2 is getting Dominion DLC this month

Jurassic World Evolution 2, a game about raising dinosaurs and creating complicated habitats for them, is getting a new expansion to coincide with the upcoming Jurassic World movie, as seen in a trailer shown during the PC game show 2022 (opens in new tab). Called the Dominion Biosyn expansion, the DLC features new dinosaur species from the movie, a new location to build your park, and many quality-of-life improvements.

But of course the dinosaurs are what really matter. Here is a list of the new dinosaurs that Frontier Developments shared in a recent blog post (opens in new tab):

  • Pyroraptor: “Recognise this beautiful plumage, Park Managers? This week’s Know Your Dino was none other than Pyroraptor, distant cousin of Velociraptor and Deinonychus. This clever ‘fire thief’ is sure to put your park management skills to the test, and will be Tell him about your guests!”
  • Therizinosaurus: “Therizinosaurus is a fierce, territorial herbivore that sports feathers throughout its imposing stature. With its elongated forearms and curved claws, this ancient dinosaur – whose name means ‘scythe lizard’ – has an intimidating appearance. vegetation to eat rather than fight, but it will not hesitate to defend its territory.
  • Dimetrodon: “Dimetrodon is the oldest prehistoric species we added to Jurassic World Evolution 2 – going extinct several million years before dinosaurs appeared on Earth. This carnivore is characterized by the impressive neural spine sail on its back, likely used as heat regulation.”
  • Quetzalcoatlus: “Last, but certainly not least, is one of the greatest flying animals of all time: Quetzalcoatlus. This imposing pterosaur has an enormous wingspan and will require multiple aviary domes to satisfy its territory and environmental needs. Its size and length, beak sharp makes it a dominant force in the air.”

Old dog-shaped dinosaurs and fire-themed raptors are cool and all, but I must declare that I’m not okay with the Therizinosaurus’ extremely long nails. I’m assuming the Jurassic franchise took some creative liberties with dinosaurs that didn’t actually exist, and I really hope this long-clawed weirdo is one of them.

Accompanying all the extra beasts is a new campaign set in the Biosyn Valley from the Jurassic World Dominion movie.

“You’ll also be working alongside familiar and iconic characters from across the franchise, including Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard), Dr. Alan Grant (voiced by Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (voiced by Laura Dern), and Lewis Dodgson (voiced by Campbell Scott),” the post reads.

Actors from the movies appearing to voice their video game counterparts? That’s a rarity. Update 3 (released along with the expansion) will also bring more Chaos Theory maps, changes to dinosaur feuds, and more contracts. The Biosyn Dominion expansion will launch on June 14th.
