We're also including dinosaur Variants for Dreadnoughtus and Giganotosarus in the expansion. These stunning Variants - differing in size, appearance, and sound from their regular counterparts - are sure to leave your guests with their jaws on the floor.
Create a striking scarred or feathered T. rex, or give your Parasaurolophuses and Dilophosauruses a new look with skins authentic to their cinematic counterparts. These are sure to delight and thrill your guests.
The Dominion Biosyn Expansion gives you access to an exciting, Biosyn focused, campaign that expands on the story of Jurassic World Dominion. This campaign has been created specifically for this expansion. You'll be teaming up with Lewis Dodgson (voiced by Campbell Scott), to help run operations at a high-tech Biosyn Genetics facility in a new valley environment. As part of the campaign, you'll be unearthing amber-encased DNA to synthesise the new film-inspired species, and eventually work to restore a fire-ravaged forest to help the dinosaurs thrive.
You will also be meeting familiar characters like Dr. Alan Grant (voiced by Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (voiced by Laura Dern), and Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard).
Gameplay additions like the underground Hyper Loop and Research Outposts will let you design your parks and facilities in different ways, and Biosyn themed buildings and decorations will add even greater visual variety.
Alongside the new Biosyn focused campaign narrative, you can also experience a thrilling what-if scenario inspired by the events of Jurassic World Dominion in Chaos Theory. You'll be teaming up with Owen Grady to house and care for escaped dinosaurs at his snowy Sierra Nevada ranch, and working on keeping them safe from rustlers who are coming to steal them away. Build flood-lights, watchtowers, and other defensive structures to anticipate, prevent, and intercept these rustlers.
The Biosyn buildings, as well as the maps from the campaign and Chaos Theory levels, are useable in Sandbox Mode as well. Please be aware that the Research Compound is only available on the Biosyn Valley map, and will work as your park's Research Center and Arrival Point.
We're also releasing a free base game update at the same time as the new expansion. Update 3 will add several quality of life enhancements, as well as some new gameplay mechanics. You'll be able to herd and move dinosaurs from place to place – without the need to tranquilise them and call in a transport helicopter – using new wrangling mechanics. After Update 3 you can also link up multiple parts of your parks and facilities using Park Tours, and a single connected Tour will improve your transport rating. In addition to this, we're also adding in a new tour for the DFW building set, giving all eras access to Tours in Sandbox Mode.
Also among the quality of life enhancements is the option to have multiple Operations buildings in Sandbox Mode, letting you have multiple Control Centers, Visitor Centers, Arrival Points and more. Avid Sandbox Mode players will also be happy to know that you will be able to fully turn off both Status Checks and Dinosaur Injuries in Sandbox Mode.
Chaos Theory maps are coming to Challenge Mode, with unique conditions and dinosaur traits that are sure to put you to the test. For more information about these new Challenge Mode levels, head to our forums.
Last but not least, this update is adding NVIDIA® Ray-traced ambient occlusion to Jurassic World Evolution 2 on PC, adding even more depth and realism to dinosaurs and the world around them. Simply activate NVIDIA DLSS and RTAO, and you'll instantly experience amazing visuals and performance that's up to 2X faster at 4K.
The full list of changes and quality of life enhancements can be found in the update notes.
We hope you enjoy the Dominion Biosyn Expansion and free Update, Park Managers!
