  • Prevent terrorise need from being shared to other group members as it causes some inconsistent behaviour

Sandbox Mode

Let down

No you haven’t. The link from the game home screen to download the Dino pack doesn’t work and I can’t find it in the PlayStation store.
Jurassic World Evolution Update 1.6.1 and Cretaceous Dinosaur Pack

Make sure you have updated to the latest version of the game. The content should then be available to install.


I have been trying to download/install the latest game update (1.6.1) and the new dinosaur pack. I do not see the option at my game start screen like I did with the "Secrets of Dr. Wu". I am also at version 1.5.something. When I check my PlayStation 4 it says that all system and game updates are current.

I have enabled Internet access while my PlayStation is in rest mode and left the console on all night to receive the update. Not sure what I am missing. Please help. I really want both of these game updates/enhancements!

Depending on your location some PS Stores can take longer than others to feature new DLC. If the update is not currently available you may want to try checking again later.
Why spinosaurus looks thinner than Trex in Jurassic World Evolution. Is there no update on PS or Xbox? even though in the original framework is bigger. Spino sound is also not like in Jurassic Park 3 movie, supposed to see fossil
