Explorers, we've got some exciting news for you! Ludia has provided GamePress with EXCLUSIVE information on the 2.8 Update! The so called 'Scorpius Update' will be dropped next week, and has some very exciting features in store for us! You will see the full Release Notes being released this Friday, But Ludia has given us permission to share some teasers with you all! So without further ado, let's dive into the next update!
Note: Ludia provided the most recent information available at the time. They are not final and subject to change if necessary.
Update 2.8 will be dubbed as the 'Scorpius Update', so one creature is already revealed: The menacing Scorpius Rex from Camp Cretaceous Season 3 will be appearing in JWA! But there is a twist with this creature, as we will be getting 3 of them! That's right, 3 Scorpius Rexes! This will very likely mean that we will be getting a GEN 3 variant for the first time in JWA History! Nothing is known about its components yet, but we will very likely find out in the Release Notes on Friday!
Besides the 3 Scorpius Rexes, we will be getting 9 additional creatures, adding up to a total of 12 new creatures this patch, which is a lot when compared to the last updates! We will have 3 new Rares, 1 new Epic, 3 Legendary Hybrids, and 2 new Apexes. That's right, 2 new Apexes. For the first time we will be getting two Apexes in a single update. Not sure how we feel about this one, but the sound of 12 new Creatures sounds amazing! We can't wait to see what they will be!
Ludia intends to introduce 3 new features this Update. First off, we have a Drone High Score feature! This feature will allow you to see what your highscore on a certain creature is when you dart it, so this is great for people who like darting! Furthermore, Ludia is adding a feature called the 'friend referral bonus'. We have no information on this feature yet, so we will have to find out in the Release Notes! Finally, Ludia intends to revamp the news section in an effort to improve their communication to players in the app! This last feature will take some time to roll out, as it is intended to go live on July 5th.
There will be 8 new achievements added with this update. Furthermore, there will be NO creature changes, which is a bummer. They are however renaming Cunning Group Strike to Cleansing Group Cunning Strike, likely to prevent confusion. There will be 21 new abilities introduced in 2.8, and they apparently look amazing, so we can't wait to see! Finally, we will be getting 4 new Raid Bosses this patch, including the 2 Apex bosses already mentioned. One Raid Boss is also going to leave: Megalosuchus will be leaving the Raid Roster.
This is some exciting information and we're glad that Ludia has allowed GamePress to share this information on their behalf! What is your favourite part of this teaser? Let us know in the comments or in our Discord server!
