Players can welcome a plethora of fascinating wildlife from steppes, plains and prairies across the world with Planet Zoo: Grasslands Animal Pack. This new expansion arrives on PC via Steam on the 13th of December 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 armour. There is then the Maned Wolf, with its impressively long legs. The curious Emu, with its recognisable 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 colourful 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.
Planet Zoo – Career zookeepers are in for a treat
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 maximising both guest satisfaction and profit, zookeepers will be able to set their tour schedules, balancing animal talks with breaks to keep guests educated and energised. 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 favourite animals.
Darragh, one of the writers here absolutely loves this title and I have no doubt that he’ll love this latest expansion.
