How to Unlock the Tyrannosaurus Rex in Jurassic World Evolution 2

The Tyrannosaurus Rex is the undisputed king of the dinosaurs, and it is one massive carnivorous beast you will want to have as an attraction in your Jurassic Park. This How to Unlock the Tyrannosaurus Rex guide will tell you what you how to research this dinosaur.

To begin with you need to create a park in a mode other than Sandbox mode, a good choice is Challenge mode as it is free of restrictions, or John Hammond's demands. Progress through the game as you normally would, constructing the buildings (Science Center, Expedition Center, Response Facility, and Hatchery) and making sure you accumulate a decent amount of cash in the process. Then as soon as you are able to, start researching carnivore traits. They need to be researched in the following order.

- Medium Carnivores 1 (Ceratosaurus)
Automatically available at the start of your run.

- Medium Carnivores 2 (Carnotaurus)
Can be unlocked at the start.

- Medium Carnivores 3 (Metriacanthosaurus)
Requires Medium Carnivores 2 and increasing the total carnivore population to +3. You can just use Ceratosaurus or Dilophosaurus to get this part done.

- Large Carnivores 1 (Giganotosaurus)
Release three dinosaurs with the Strong trait.

- Large Carnivores 2 (Tyrannosaurus Rex)
Have a dinosaur with three fights won.

Once you have unlocked Large Carnivores 2 and providing you have sufficient funds to gather its genome you will be ready to create your Tyrannosaurus Rex. In order to do so, you need to send your expeditions to one or more of the following sites to gather at least 50% of its genome.

- Frenchman Formation 5
- Hell Creek Formation C
- Lance Formation Site C

Once you have the required amount of genome, you need to complete the usual hatching procedure and place the dinosaur in an enclosure on its own. The Tyrannosaurus Rex in Jurasic World Evolution 2 has by default the following perk chances: 75% Antisocial, 50% Intolerant, and 25% Strong. The evironment and territory it prefers is forests, sand, live prey, and the Compsognathus.

Take a look at our How to Research Dinosaurs guide to find out what is involved in this process.
