JWA News Update: Final Family Revealed, July Monthly Creature, July Seasonal Rewards, and Giga Scent update

Submit Feedback or Error


Hello Explorers! We are still anxiously anticipating more information about the next update! A Mod on the forum confirmed we won't be getting any notes this week and since we haven't seen any real teasers outside of the families being revealed, we are thinking it'll be another 1-2 weeks before we hear anything else about it. 

Make sure you check your in-game mailbox as there is an incubator that included Ardentismaxima DNA! This is compensation for the tournament reset that happened last weekend. You will receive up to 100 Maxima DNA depending on your player level. This incubator will not replace the Championship incubator your alliance will earn and you will be able to collect those rewards on Monday. There is also a Fireworks scent since that failed to appear on the map this week.

We finally released the results of the arena performance survey we sent out last month. We found some incredibly interesting data and wanted even more information so we released a second survey! Below you will find the results of the first, and a link to the second survey that will delve even deeper into the data. Make sure you check it out! 

We've had plenty of other news this week so let's get to it. 

New Creature Families

Today the last family was revealed. We still don't know eactly how these families will function in the game, but we know they will be associated with the new Co-Op mode in some way.

So far the revealed families are: Stegosauridae,Counter-Attacking Medium Theropod, Damage-Increasing Medium Theropod, Tall-Legged Crocodilia, Ankylosauridae, Sauropods, Brachiosauridae, Entelodontidae, Turtles, and Hadrosaurs. You can see the full list of families on this forum thread 

Today they announce that the final family that will be revealed is the Rhinocerotidae family. 


These horned creatures can survive any attack from your opponents with Armored and Shielded Taunting Tanks! They will remain undefeated as they have some Speed Control and Anti-Dodge abilities.

This mighty family consists of:

  • Brontolasmus,
  • Brontotherium,
  • Elasmotherium,
  • Mammotherium,
  • Monolorhino,
  • Woolly Rhinoceros

Rhino Family

When you look at this family and several of the others in the thread players have noticed a lack of several key creatures (like Mammolania, Tuoramoloch, and many others). Apparently this isn't a mistake as one of the forum staff verified that:

dinos who are in those families but not on the list means that they won’t be gaining the co-op abilities.

The Rhino family was the last one to be revealed so there are several still missing that we would expect to see (like the birds and Rex's), but that doesn't mean we won't get them once the new update goes live. They could also be introduced in future patches. Either way, we are really excited to see how these families function in the game and can't wait to get more information about the Co-Op mode! 

July Seasonal Rewards - Wuerhosaurus

The Kelenken season ends next week and today they announced the next Seasonal reward. 


  • Start: July 06, 2020
  • End: August 03, 2020

Guaranteed Creature DNA

  • Wuherosaurus

July Season reward

Once again not the most exciting DNA in the world. I would still like to see more exclusive or harder to obtain DNA in the arena to really motivate players to do well. Wuhero isn't a horrible reward and being a park spawn it isn't as easily accessible to many players, but it's also not something many find worth fighting for in the arena. We hope the Championships offer some good DNA next month so at least we have the tournaments to look forward to. 

July Daily Creature

The July daily creature was also announced and we are pretty excited about it!

Starts: July 06, 2020
Ends: August 03, 2020



Since this is a dawn/dusk spawn only this is one of the more difficult epics to hunt down so we are excited about getting it for the whole month of July! This should definitely be the motivation to finish those daily missions. It might not have the best hybrid of the bunch, but this is helpful to all of the collectors that want to finish their collection and haven't been able to. 

Giga Scents extended

As the COVID situation continues to affect players around the world it looks like Ludia is taking it a couple of weeks at a time regarding their response and the in-game perks we are receiving as a result.The last announcement said they would be extended until June 30th, but it looks like they have extended it once again until July 15th. Posting on the forum:

We hope everyone is staying safe during this time. As we have previously mentioned, Jurassic World Alive is adjusting the game to make your playing experience a good one from home. Here are some of the new changes:

  • The Treasure Chases have been replaced with a weekly reward available to all players. Check your in-game mail on Saturdays for your weekly surprise!
  • We have increased the drone range for everyone to make creature collecting easier. It’s increased to 200m for Non VIP players and to 266m for VIP players. This range extension will be valid until July 15th.
  • Strike Tower Events have been added with shorter cycles giving players more events to play each week.
  • The Giga Scent and the Pile of Darts offers that we added last week will also remain valid until July 15th.

We are really enjoying the Giga scents especially and hope we get an Entelomoth pursuit soon so we have even more chances to get out there and get that Mammoth DNA! 

Wrap Up

We are really hoping to see more teasers this next week and can't wait to read patch notes once they go live! We should also be getting a new hybrid pursuit next week and I am crossing my fingers for Entelomoth, especially with the extension of the Giga scents.
