Jurassic World Evolution 2 is getting Dominion DLC this month

Jurassic World Evolution 2, a game about raising dinosaurs and creating intricate habitats for them, is getting a snazzy new expansion to coincide with the next Jurassic World movie, as revealed in a trailer that was shown during the PC Gaming Show 2022 (opens in new tab). Dubbed the Dominion Biosyn Expansion, the DLC includes new species of dinosaurs from the movie, a new location to build your park, and heaps of quality of life improvements.

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

  • pyroraptor: “Recognize this magnificent plumage, Park Manager? This week, Know Your Dino was none other than Pyroraptor, a distant cousin of Velociraptor and Deinonychus. This intelligent ‘fire thief’ is sure to put your park management skills to the test and will be the talk of your guests!”
  • Therizinosaurus: “Therizinosaurus is a fierce, territorial, leaf-eater that sports feathers over its imposing stature. With its elongated forearms and curved claws, this ancient dinosaur – whose name means “reaper lizard” – has an intimidating appearance. Normally its claws would be used for pulling plants for eating rather than fighting, however it does not hesitate to defend its territory.
  • Dimetrodon: “Dimetrodon is the oldest prehistoric species we’ve added to Jurassic World Evolution 2 – it died out several million years before dinosaurs first appeared on Earth. This carnivore is characterized by the impressive neural spine sails on its back, which are probably used for thermoregulation.”
  • Quetzalcoatlus: “Last, but not least, is one of the largest flying animals of all time: Quetzalcoatlus. This towering pterosaur has an enormous wingspan and will require multiple aviary domes to accommodate its territory and environmental needs. Its sheer size and length, sharp beak makes it a dominant force in the air.”

Old dog-shaped dinos and fire-themed raptors are cool and all, but I have to say I disagree with the Therizinosaurus’ extremely long nails. I assume the Jurassic franchise took some creative liberties with dinosaurs that didn’t actually exist, and I really hope this long-clawed madman is one of them.
