Free update includes an exciting new cake shop and a new species of Lemur, plus an in-game challenge
Cambridge, UK – 4 November 2021 Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) announced a free update is heading to the game today, bringing with it a host of new content to celebrate two years of Frontier’s ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo.
As part of the anniversary update, players will now be able to add a cake shop to their zoos. New to Planet Zoo, Bernie’s Bakes will provide guests with delicious sweet treats and help them get into the anniversary spirit.
In addition to Bernie’s Bakes, the Black and White Ruffed Lemur is sure to be a favourite for zookeepers and guests alike. Found in the rainforests of Madagascar, these fascinating primates are known for their female-led social groups, incredibly loud call, and signature white ruff.
Zookeepers can also put their skills to the test with a weekend-long community challenge, taking place from 5th-7th November. Every 5 animals a player releases will result in increased chances of obtaining high-rated animals and albino colouring, while every 20 animals the player releases awards a complete avatar outfit.
Along with this fantastic free content, zoo guests will also be helping put on a celebratory display, wishing zookeepers everywhere a Wippi Abbonibo (Happy anniversary in Planco) as they bring colourful balloons along with them for the duration of the anniversary weekend.
