Jurassic World Evolution just got a big new update on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Jurassic World Evolution Update 1.4 is out now and adds or changes a lot of things the community has been asked for, including changing the sizes of key dinosaurs, giving players more Sandbox options, and adding an exciting new Jurassic World Evolution Challenge Mode.
We've covered the dinosaur size changes previously, but there are some interesting surprises in the rest of the changes. Read on for all details.
Jurassic World Evolution Challenge Mode
This is separate from the story campaign and sandbox, and will take place on the main movie island of Isla Nublar, which is usually just the sandbox island. You choose difficulty (easy, medium, hard and Jurassic) and you start with very little starting money. There are new problems including Hammond Foundation fees and contract cancellation penalties. New skins are available when you beat this mode for the first time, and on Jurassic difficulty. It sounds a blast, and rather like the movies Jurassic Park and Jurassic World.
Jurassic World Evolution Update 1.4 Dinosaur Size Changes
See here for all changes. The T-Rex will be smaller, the Spinosaurus will be bigger than her, and Giganotosaurus will be the same size as the T-Rex.
Jurassic World Evolution Update 1.4 Sandbox Changes
New options include a dinosaur lifespan toggle (dinosaurs no longer die of old age), a cash level toggle (decide how much cash is available to you - Low, Medium, High, Unlimited), various difficulty settings (dinosaur variety, rating, guest count, and economics), feeder resupply toggle (no longer have to resupply feeders? YES), and power toggle (no power stations or power requirements needed, as well as no power outages). These will presumably not be available in story mode.
