The Giganotosaurus is one of the dinosaurs featured in the newest movie Jurassic World Dominion. And because of that, a new DLC has been released in Jurassic World Evolution 2 so that players can also experience having this ferocious carnivore inside their own parks.

In this guide, we will talk about the Giganotosaurus and how to unlock the Giganotosaurus 2022 skin in Jurassic World Evolution 2.

How to unlock Giganotosaurus 2022 in Jurassic World Evolution 2

The Giganotosaurus, or at least its movie variant, is exclusive to the Dominion Biosyn Expansion of the game. Once you get the DLC, follow these steps to unlock the Giganotosaurus 2022 for your park.

Play the Dominion Campaign: Biosyn

You’ll have to play through the new Dominion Campaign and oversee the development of the Biosyn Sanctuary. As you go through the objectives, you will eventually complete the construction of the Main Research Compound’s stage 4 and you will be able to start doing the necessary genetic research projects.

Complete Research Projects towards Biosyn Genetics DNA 4

A lot of research has to be done in order to unlock the ability to extract and recreate the genome of a Giganotosaurus, so make sure that you always have the Research Facility going and pick the best Genetics Specialists that you can.

The Giganotosaurus is actually the last unlockable dinosaur in the genetics research tree, so you must unlock the first three dinosaurs in order to progress to it. Once it has been unlocked, the Giganotosaurus dig site will then become available.

Upgrade Amber Mine to Level 3

As you upgrade your Amber Mine, you will be able to discover more dig sites. The first Giganotosaurus dig site can be accessed at Amber Mine level 3. Digging amber up for this site requires a total of 11 Logistics points, so make sure that you have enough scientists with high enough logistics points to complete the task.

Process the Ambers at the Fossil Center

Once you have collected amber with Giganotosaurus samples in it, send them over to the Fossil Center so that the Giganotosaurus genome can be extracted. You may need to do a couple of trips to the amber mine if you would like to get a 100% genome synthesis.

Hatch a Giganotosaurus egg at a Hatchery

Once you have created an enclosure and a hatchery for it, it’s time to hatch your very first Giganotosaurus. It is at this point that you can modify its genome first, and if you want to see the same one from Jurassic World Dominion, you can immediately select the Giganotosaurus 2022 skin. Synthesizing one will require 11 Genetics points, it will cost $858,500, and it will take 2:40 minutes.

This skin is based on the one seen in Jurassic World Dominion, with more prominent spines running along its back.

Once you have it synthesized, just have its egg incubated at the hatchery bay. It will cost $1,717,000 and will require 11 Welfare points to incubate one egg, and it will take 6 minutes.

Once it has hatched, you will then have your own Giganotosaurus. Remember that it is a carnivore, so you’ll have to set its enclosure up to its needs. Also, aside from just having the Dominion version skin, it will also have new animations, so go test it out by giving it a goat to hunt and eat.
