The Planet Zoo: Australia Pack will be taking players to Straya later this summer, bringing koalas, woos, and all sorts of other delights to the delightful zoo tycoon game from Frontier Developments.

If you haven't yet played Planet Zoo, you've missed out on a deep and rich zoo tycoon that challenges you to build the best zoo while also educating players. It's barely been out for a year and the developers have already announced that another DLC pack is on the way!

Check out the Planet Zoo: Australia Pack Announce Trailer to see some of the new animals and scenery in motion!

As one might expect, the Australia Pack DLC will be adding in animals, scenery, and more with an Australian theme. Additionally, a new kind of "timed scenario" is being added to the game, challenging players to meet a set of goals against the clock.

Of course, one of the highlights will also be the five new animals added to the game with this DLC. What are the new animals in the Planet Zoo: Australia Pack?

  • Koala
  • Red Kangaroo
  • Dingo
  • Southern Cassowary
  • Eastern  Blue-Tongued Lizard
