Today, Frontier Developments announced a free update is heading to the game bringing with it a host of new content to celebrate two years of Frontier’s ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. The ultimate zoo sim, Planet Zoo features authentic living animals who think, feel and explore the world you create around them. Craft unique habitats and vast landscapes, make big decisions and meaningful choices and nurture your animals as you construct and manage the world’s wildest zoos. Build and run a truly modern zoo where animal welfare and conservation come first.
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 favorite 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 November 5-7. Every 5 animals a player releases will result in increased chances of obtaining high-rated animals and albino coloring, 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 colorful balloons along with them for the duration of the two years of the Frontier game anniversary weekend.
Planet Zoo is available now on Steam with an RRP of $44.99, Planet Zoo Deluxe Edition RRP for $54.99, or the Planet Zoo Deluxe Upgrade Pack for $11.99.
