Frontier Developments has unveiled Claire’s Sanctuary, another helping of paid DLC for its dinosaur park management sim Jurassic World Evolution, which comes to PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on 18th June.
Claire’s Sanctuary, as you may have already surmised, depending on the extend of your Jurassic Park knowledge, focusses on former park operations manager Claire Dearing, now a “prominent campaigner and advocate for dinosaur wellbeing”.
The bulk of the DLC takes the form of a new standalone campaign, unfolding on familiar Jurassic Park haunt, Isla Nublar. Picking up immediately after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, players are charged with saving the island’s remaining dinosaurs from the erupting Mount Sibo, then establishing a new home on Sanctuary Island, with Dearing – once again portrayed by Bryce Dallas Howard – offering guidance.
Alongside the main campaign, Frontier promises all-new structures and features, plus three new dinosaurs in the form of the Albertosaurus, Euoplocephalus, and Ouranosaurus. Fans of paleobotany can deploy the new Greenhouse facility, enabling the research and development of extinct plant species for use in feeders – to increase the lifespan and prestige of dinosaurs – and there’s a new off-road truck ride tour for visitors to enjoy.
Claire’s Sanctuary will cost 12.99/$14.99 USD when it launches on PC, Playstation 4, and Xbox One digital stores on 18th June. It’ll be accompanied by a free update promising new terrain brushes and scenery items, Gyrosphere system improvements, changes to Spinosauridae care, and other quality-of-life enhancements.
