Notes[]

  • This is the 4th Free DLC Map originated from the mods, others being The Center, Ragnarok and Valguero.
  • This is the 3rd Free DLC Map to introduce a unique exclusive dino inside the map, others being Ragnarok (with   Griffin) and Valguero (with   Deinonychus)
  • Crystal Isles, at 150 square km, is nearly the same size as The Island, Scorched Earth, and The Center put together. (Added up they are 154 square km) and larger than Ragnarok (144 square km), although Ragnarok likely has more land mass (unconfirmed)
  • Crystal Isles is the second mod map to bring a new Artifact. The first is The Center
