One of gaming’s biggest success stories teams up with one of the biggest movie franchises of all time
My kids are the biggest Jurassic World fans, despite only ever having seen the few clips of the movies I deemed suitable for a 5 and 7 year old. They have, however, put in around eleventy billion hours on the Lego Jurassic World game, and amassed a collection of the sets worth the GDP of a small country.
They have extended this love of the Jurassic World universe into their Minecraft play. It’s always been a shame that the Lego games don’t let you do more creating in them considering the source material, but my ever-resourceful children have designed their own versions in Minecraft.
Without any skins, though, it’s always been a great effort, but when your park is only populated with blocky dinosaur-shaped statues and a selection of pigs, pandas and horses, it doesn’t quite capture the true feel.
Enter, Minecraft: Jurassic World.
The Jurassic World DLC includes 21 skins and over 60 dinosaurs, including Hybrids. Finally, their wonderful creations can now be filled with walking, chomping, stomping dinosaurs and help bring their imagination to life.
It’s not just skins, though. The DLC allows you to craft and train dinosaurs, build exhibits and solve problems as park manager, but you can also go on exhibitions to discover new dinosaur DNA. Officially licensed vehicles are included, and best of all, they have accurately recreated the Jurassic World park and many of its locations, including Main Street leading down to the Mosasaurus arena, and the aviary.
For Jurassic World fans, young and old, this is a fantastic piece of DLC.
The Minecraft: Jurassic World DLC costs 1340 Minecraft Coins, which if purchased in-game costs £6.69 (approx. $7.99).
If you search for the DLC in the Xbox Store from the dashboard, however, you can get a further 10% discount if you are a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber. With the discount, it costs just £6.02.
