How to Research Dinosaurs in Jurassic World Evolution 2

You will need to research dinosaurs in order to unlock them in Jurassic World Evolution 2. Some dinosaurs are unlocked by playing the Campaign mode, while others are earned in Chaos Theory and Challenge modes. Regardless of which mode you play, you will still need to research the dinosaurs to unlock them, and this How to Research Dinosaurs guide will tell you everything you need to know about the process.

When you select the 'Research' tab in Jurassic World Evolution 2 you will be able to choose from the available batch the dinosaurs you can research. When you then do the initial research, a dig site on the map will become unlocked. If you now send a scientist to the dig site that has appeared on the map, they will return with several fossils which will typically include a mixture of the fossils you wanted, a few other ones, and some valuable rocks which you will be able to sell to get some extra cash.

When you now process the fossils of the dinosaur that you want to unlock, you will begin to start compiling a genome. A 100% genome is not required to start cloning a dinosaur, 50% should be enough to start the process. It is important to remember that the higher the genome, the greater your chances are of unlocking the dinosaur.

Take a look at our How to Unlock Dinosaurs guide to find out how you unlock dinosaurs for Sandlot mode in Jurassic World Evolution 2.
