Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) announced a thrilling expansion for the ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. Players can discover the incredible inhabitants of lush rainforests with Planet Zoo: Tropical Pack, arriving on Steam on 4 April 2023 for a suggested retail price of £7.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.
From the dense forest floor to the bustling canopy, Planet Zoo: Tropical Pack invites players to welcome five fascinating species into their zoos. Guests will hear the distinctive call of the Lar Gibbon as it whips through the trees; spot the auburn-coated Red River Hog as it scavenges in the soil; glimpse the elusive Fossa as it climbs through the branches; and spy the impressive Asian Water Monitor as it emerges from its pond. The leisurely Brown-Throated Sloth is also sure to delight as it slowly moves across the Walkthrough Exhibit.
Arriving alongside these unique new species, zookeepers can create tranquil tropical landscapes with over 200 pieces of stunning scenery inspired by the rich architecture and flora of Southeast Asia. Guests can stroll through sprawling Tongkonan villages and serene Balinese temples thanks to tiered buildings and intricate stone carvings, while vivid tropical foliage such as the potent-smelling Rafflesia and Attenborough’s Pitcher Plant provide pops of colour amidst shady leaves.
Planet Zoo: Tropical Pack also brings a thrilling new Career scenario set in the depths of the jungle. Zookeepers will reunite with Tiffany Summers as well as a returning villain from previous scenarios, working to reverse the fortunes of the struggling zoo gifted by her father. Keeping a cool head amidst sweltering conditions is essential to ensure its animals can truly thrive.
In addition, zookeepers can also enjoy a free base-game update, which provides a range of features and enhancements, including more complex social dynamics across various species. Alongside a number of quality-of-life updates, brachiation is now possible on vines, while players can also place null paths within their zoos.
