We’re trying to avoid making jokes about Planet Zoo’s beaver. (You have no idea how hard it is right now.)
(No, seriously, we’re trying our best. The pull of the beaver is strong. Must. Resist. Making. Beaver. Jokes.)
Planet Zoo, the zoo-building tycoon sim from Frontier Developments, is getting eight more creatures next month. These new animals are in the “North America Animal Pack”, so, erm, it shouldn’t be too difficult to discern where these animals come from.
Here’s every animal being added to Planet Zoo in the North America Animal Pack DLC:
- American Beaver
- California Sea Lion
- American Alligator
- Black-tailed Prairie Dog
- Arctic Fox
- American Bull Frog
(Oh, god, there are cougars, too? I’ll get my coat. To leave. On my own! Not because I’ve pulled a cougar. Shut up!)
In addition to these new fauna, the North America Animal Pack also adds the following enrichment items to Planet Zoo:
- Beaver pool
- Pronghorn piñata
- Skittle feeder
- Melon feeder
- Underwater plant feeder
There’s also a new scenario included, which, according to the press release:
“Zookeepers will step into the foothills of the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains to put their skills to the test, as they use the wilderness around them to transform a small zoo, located in marshy wetlands, into a fully-functioning success story.”
While the North America Animal Pack DLC costs money, at the same time, a free update will be available to Planet Zoo for all players that includes a number of general improvements, including “terrain variations in starting maps, a new height map feature, deep-water swimming for feline species, path barriers, and much more”.
The Planet Zoo North America Animals Pack DLC launches on October 4, priced at £7.99 / US$9.99 / €9.99.
