It is a truly wonderful time to be a Jurassic Park/Jurassic World fan. I went to see Jurassic World Dominion with my dad on release day, and I loved it. Don’t worry friends, there are no spoilers here. Honestly it has just added to my already intense excitement for the latest expansion pack for my 2021 game of the year, Jurassic World Evolution 2. My love for this game has not lessened even a fraction since release. In fact, it just keeps growing. First we had the Early Cretaceous pack, and then Camp Cretaceous. Also, if you haven’t watched that show, I can’t recommend it enough. But now we are getting a MASSIVE expansion pack. The Dominion Biosyn Expansion.
What comes with the Dominion Biosyn Expansion?
This expansion is truly jam-packed with content. First up, there’s an all new campaign. Joining a cast of much-loved characters such as Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard), Dr. Alan Grant (voiced by Sam Neill) and Dr. Ellie Sattler (voiced by Laura Dern), players will work alongside Lewis Dodgson (voiced by Campbell Scott), now head of Biosyn Genetics. This compelling new campaign that sees them tasked with constructing a new Research Compound in multiple stages. Using a brand-new feature, players will dig deep into amber mines and unearth rare genomes to create feathered prehistoric species never before seen in a Jurassic World Evolution game. That’s not the only new feature, however. Invisible fences provide an innovative solution to contain and control inhabitants, while a fast transport system allows players to efficiently move staff around their parks.
On top of this, there’s a brand new Chaos Theory mode. Which I called when the game originally released. I knew there would be a Dominion Chaos Theory. Set in a stunning Sierra Nevada environment featuring majestic pine forests, snowy hills, and sweeping plains, players must rise to the challenge of building their very own facility to house dinosaurs and ensure their safety.
New Dominion Species
We’re also getting new dinosaurs. First up, we have the feathered Therizinosaurus, a fiercely territorial foliage-grazer with magnificent plumage and intimidating curved claws; and the Pyroraptor, an intelligent pack-hunter, so-named after the first fossils were uncovered by a forest fire. I personally like to call Pyroraptors spicy raptors. On top of these, we’re getting Dimetrodon, which became extinct before dinosaurs first appeared, and Quetzalcoatlus, one of the largest flying animals of all time.
Jurassic World Evolution 2: Dominion Biosyn Expansion also includes a range of new dinosaur variants and skins authentic to Jurassic World Dominion, including the striking feathered and scarred Tyrannosaurus rex, remarkable new skins for Dilophosaurus and Parasaurolophus, as well as variants for the immense Dreadnoughtus and formidable Giganotosaurus.
I cannot express my excitement for all of this enough. Honestly, if no one hears from me for a while, you can probably blame this game. Frontier have truly pulled out all the stops with this game, and they are absolutely killing it on the DLC front. It’s time to completely get lost in Jurassic World.
