Frontier Developments has released the first dev diary for the upcoming Jurassic World Evolution 2. This diary touches mainly on the various new dinosaur behaviour types players can expect to see in the game. The video goes through the types of interactions each dinosaur will have with one another and how players can create certain biomes with specific breeds living in harmony together. If you put other types of dinosaurs into these pens, territory fights might take place over the turf.
A big new change in Jurassic World Evolution 2 also comes from how these creatures act and how “realistic” their movements and actions are. For example, raptors now hunt in circles and attack their prey like hunters. They also snap at one another and interact with other dinosaurs in the park.
The new behaviour system also feeds into the way these creatures choose their own habitat in Jurassic World Evolution 2. Players can create enclosures based on the needs of a specific breed but as the park evolves, these needs may change and the enclosures might work against that specific breed. This will force players to constantly keep up to date with the needs and wants of each breed as they grow the park.
There is also a new level of customization in Jurassic World Evolution 2. Players can select from a range of different dinosaurs with different shades of skin colour. This allows them to truly create their own unique park with species that might be under the same breed but bear different patterns and skin tones.
Jurassic World Evolution 2 also comes with some nifty pen creation tools that let players pain textures across the ground, scatter plants and rotate a range of items in a 360-degree scope to create a unique layout in each enclosure.
