Planet Zoo: Grasslands Animal Pack

Frontier Developments announced today a brand new expansion for the ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. Players can welcome a plethora of fascinating wildlife from steppes, plains, and prairies across the world with Planet Zoo: Grasslands Animal Pack, arriving on PC via Steam on 13 December 2022 for a suggested retail price of £7.99/$9.99/€9.99.

Planet Zoo: Grasslands Animal Pack brings eight unique new species to the game. Introducing the Nine-Banded Armadillo, with its extraordinary armor; the Maned Wolf, with its impressively long legs; the curious Emu, with its recognizable grey plumage; the agile and elusive Caracal; the alert Red-Necked Wallaby; the scavenging Striped Hyena; and the striking Blue Wildebeest.

In addition, zookeepers can choose from a stunning assortment of five colorful species of Butterfly to populate their Walkthrough Exhibit, including Cloudless Sulphur, European Peacock, Menelaus Blue Morpho, Monarch, and Old World Swallowtail. These flying insects can be kept together as Planet Zoo’s first-ever interspecies-compatible exhibit animals.

New animations, such as the Nine-Banded Armadillo’s preening and sniffing, the bounce of the Caracal’s floppy ears as it prowls through the grass, and the juvenile Red-Necked Wallaby’s playful interactions, are also bound to keep even the most discerning zoo guests entertained.

Zookeepers can also test out their management skills thanks to an enthralling new Career scenario set within the picturesque grasslands of Argentina. Players will help wealthy socialite Tiffany Summers – who also featured in the recent Twilight Pack scenario – to earn her zookeeping permit. They’ll learn more about the important roles of animal care and conservation as they work to relocate the diverse inhabitants of her mansion grounds to a more suitable new home.

Alongside the pack, players will also enjoy a free base-game update, which brings with it a range of extras, enhancements, and quality-of-life updates, including all-new Guided Zoo Tours. Perfect for maximizing both guest satisfaction and profit, zookeepers will be able to set their tour schedules, balancing animal talks with breaks to keep guests educated and energized. A new Heatmap tool displays guest visibility for each habitat, while a new terrain option in Sandbox mode provides an ideal set-up for budding builders to capture dioramas for their favorite animals.

Planet Zoo: Grasslands Animal Pack requires the Planet Zoo base game in order to download and play. Planet Zoo is available now on Steam here with an RRP of £34.99/$44.99/€44.99, Planet Zoo Deluxe Edition RRP for £42.99 / $54.99 / €54.99 or the Planet Zoo Deluxe Upgrade Pack for £9.99 / $11.99 / €11.99.
