Challenge Mode is a game mode in Jurassic World Evolution which allows players to create a park with adjustable levels of difficulty, resulting in the ability to unlock unique dinosaur skins. Challenge Mode was introduced to the game in Update 1.4 with only Isla Nublar being initially available.

The mode was expanded in Update 1.6 to include all available maps in the game, including those released in the Secrets of Dr. Wu, Claire's Sanctuary and Return to Jurassic Park DLCs. In Update 1.8, the ability to randomize the mode's dig site and fossil research progression was added.

Description

In Challenge Mode, the Hammond Foundation takes a portion of the player's income. This increases over time as the player earns a higher amount of income. The higher the difficulty on which Challenge Mode is played, the Foundation takes more money, the frequency of dangerous weather is increased, and the dinosaur rating and variety requirements increase.
