Features eight amazing animals and a compelling Campaign Mode scenario.
Cambridge, UK – 5 December 2023 Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, ‘Frontier’) announced today a brand-new expansion for the ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. Introducing an extraordinary array of new animals who call this vast region their home, Planet Zoo: Eurasia Animal Pack arrives on PC via Steam on 13th December for a suggested retail price of £7.99/$9.99/€9.99. All players can also enjoy a range of new features as part of a free base game update.
Planet Zoo: Eurasia Animal Pack introduces eight fascinating new species, all of which hail from the diverse and breathtaking landscapes of Eurasia – the largest continental area on Earth. Players can watch as their guests observe each animal’s unique behaviours, with detailed new animations bringing these exceptional additions to life.
It’s hard to miss the magnificent Wisent, who navigates deep snow with ease despite its colossal size, while the fearless Wolverine is bound to amaze visitors as it climbs and rests on nearby branches. The graceful Mute Swan, named for its quiet nature, is also sure to turn heads with its impressive wingspan and underwater foraging behaviour. Equally, the Wild Boars are not to be overlooked. Guests can spot the adorable piglets as they trot alongside their mother, while the curious Saiga can also be seen exploring its habitat using its greatest asset: its snout.
Completing the Planet Zoo: Eurasia Animal Pack roster are: the thick-set Takin, with its coarse brown coat and signature horns; the Sloth Bear, whose name contrasts with its agile movements and feisty character; and the Hermann’s Tortoise exhibit animal, with its distinctive ’keyhole’ shell pattern.
Alongside eight exciting species, aspiring zookeepers are challenged to put their management skills to the test during a new Campaign Mode scenario. Bernie Goodwin returns with a secret mission, tasking players with designing and building a zoo as a surprise retirement gift for Nancy Jones. Can Bernie keep his plans concealed, or will Nancy catch on?
In addition to the pack, a free base-game update brings all players a range of extras, enhancements, and quality of life updates. Players can now provide their guests with the perfect memento of their zoo visit by planning a brand new, customisable Souvenir Shop. Creativity is also easier than ever thanks to the new Flexicolour Multiselect Mode, which allows players to select and quickly recolour multiple objects, while animal enthusiasts can also discover new colour morphs for the Bengal and Siberian Tigers.
