Jurassic World Evolution 2 Cheats, Tips Strategy
Below is a collection of hints and tips that will help you to progress in the game. These include why you should build enclosures close together and why it is essential that you build an emergency shelter.
Start with Campaign Mode
In Jurassic World Evolution 2 there are four different game modes from which to choose: Campaign, Challenge, Chaos Theory, and Sandbox. It is recommended that you start with Campaign mode, as it acts as a tutorial and will guide you through all the basics of the game and will tell you everything you need to know. Campaign mode is split into separate missions and your objectives will include capturing dinosaurs, constructing enclosures, and setting up patrols.
Build Enclosures Close Together
Running a Jurassic Park is expensive and if you try to construct too much too fast you will struggle to progress in the game. The best way to proceed is to take things slowly, if you focus on the goals that you are given it will help you to steadily build a successful dinosaur theme park. Make sure you build enclosures close together wherever possible, as doing so will create hubs for visitors. This means you will be able to cover a large area with amenities without having to build places that make a loss.

Deactivate and Relocate Amenities
Don’t forget that the deactivate button gives you the ability to deactivate and relocate amenities that are not making money, take advantage of this feature whenever possible to minimize unnecessary costs. When you deactivate a building it cannot be used, and it will not incur running costs. You can always reactivate it later when your Jurassic Park is busier. It may just be a case that you need to change the type of amenity for the building to make money, you have the choice between food, drink, and shops.
Build an Emergency Shelter
It is essential that you have an emergency shelter somewhere central in your Jurassic Park, so your visitors can flee to safety when storms hit and break fences, causing dinosaurs to escape from their enclosures. Having an emergency shelter will help your park rating from tanking too much when this happens. After the crisis is over, your park rating will go back up, but preventing fatalities to visitors from rampaging dinosaurs will ensure it recovers much faster.
Balance your Scientists
The scientists that you can recruit in Jurassic World Evolution 2 all have different skill levels. Some may have a specialty while others offer useful perks such as reduced costs or reduced timescales for specific tasks. Make sure that you cover everything, it is recommended that the first three scientists you hire specialize in one of the three skill types – genetics, logistics, and welfare. After that, just complement them with the more general staff. Check out our How to Research Dinosaurs guide to find out what the process is to unlock dinosaurs.
