The Universal Studios Experience DLC: A Virtual Theme Park Adventure

You’ll start your adventure at the gates of Universal Studios, where Woody Woodpecker will greet users and ask for help in restoring the iconic Universal Studios globe. As you venture forward, players will experience rides, shops, minigames and encounter characters like Shrek, Dracula, King Kong, and E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. There are eight different islands to explore including Hollywood, New York, San Francisco, Amity Island, Hill Valley, Lower Lot, Jurassic World and Skull Island.
