Everything You Need to Know Before Buying Jurassic World Evolution on Switch
Jurassic World Evolution is coming to the Nintendo Switch soon, and here's everything players should know before purchasing the game.
Back in 2018, Frontier Developments released Jurassic World Evolution, which is a park simulator game based on the 2015 film Jurassic World, to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Similar to the 2003 game, Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, Evolution puts players in the role of a park manager, who must successfully open a theme-park featuring real-life dinosaurs, entertain guests, and transform the park into a five-star tourist destination.
Frontier Developments confirmed at Gamescom 2020 that Jurassic World Evolution is headed to the Switch, allowing players on Nintendo's hybrid console to "bring the wonder, majesty, and danger of dinosaurs to life." Now, for those who are interested in purchasing the game on the Switch, here's everything players need to know about Jurassic World: Evolution Complete Edition.
During its announcement at Gamescom 2020, Frontier Developments revealed that Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition will be available to the Switch on November 3. As of the moment, it doesn't appear that the Switch version will have exclusive features that are not included in the PC, PS4, and Xbox One counterparts. However, players can expect everything in the other versions to be included in the Switch which means that players should expect to build a fully-working Jurassic World theme park, bioengineer over 60 dinosaurs with unique behaviors, traits, and appearances, and build amenities to entertain guests. The game retails for $59.99, and while some may question why Frontier is asking full price for a 2-year old game, it's worth noting that the Switch version will include much more than the base game.
What's Included In The Switch Version?
Luckily for Switch players, Frontier Developments is bringing the full Jurassic World Evolution Experience with the release of the Complete Edition on the Switch. This includes every single DLC pack such as The Herbivore Dinosaur Pack, Carnivore Dinosaur Pack, Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack, and DLC Deluxe Dinosaur Pack. Moreover, Frontier is also including all three major expansions in the game, which players can see below:
Jurassic World Evolution: Return to Jurassic Park - in this expansion, players can relive the memorable events of the 1993 film Jurassic Park, by filling their parks with unique decorations and themes based on the iconic movie. The expansion challenges players to return to the island that started it all and reclaim the park from the dinosaurs after its demise in the movie. The DLC will also challenge players to rebuild beloved locations and ensure that the tragedy from the past does not happen again. What's even more exciting is that Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, and Dr. Ian Malcom are all returning to the game voiced by the same actors who portrayed them.
Jurassic World Evolution: Claire's Sanctuary - in this DLC, players are faced with a new threat, which is the impending explosion of Mt. Sibo that is expected to erupt at any moment and threatens to send the dinosaurs on the island back to extinction. In an effort to save the animals, players must team up with Jurassic World Operations Manager, Claire Dearing, to rescue the dinosaurs and save them from impending danger.
Jurassic World Evolution: Secrets of Dr. Wu - the first-ever paid DLC in the game, Secrets of Dr. Wu puts players on the challenging island of Las Cinco Muertes with a new storyline that features various campaign missions from Dr. Henry Wu. As the story unfolds, players learn that Dr. Wu has access to previously unknown locations that are kept secret from the Hammond Foundation. While working for the Divisions, players will also secretly work with Dr. Wu and earn his trust to get access to new dig sites and bring five new dinosaurs to the island. Players should note that three of these dinosaurs are hybrids created by Dr. Wu himself, so expect to see chaos unfolds caused by conflicts of interest, sabotage, and more.
Jurassic World Evolution is available now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and will release to the Nintendo Switch on November 3, 2020.
