The second major DLC pack for Planet Zoo is on the way. Planet Zoo: South America Pack adds five new animals and over 250 new park elements for you to place in your park. It's coming on April 7th.
In the new South America Pack DLC, you'll find the following animals: the Jaguar, the Capuchin Monkey, the Llama, the Red-Eyed Tree Frog, and the Anteater. Of course, as with the other animals in the base Planet Zoo game, you'll need to learn how these new animals tick. All of them will have unique feeding and breeding habits that you'll have to learn if you want to care for them properly. You can check out the announcement trailer for the new South America Pack DLC below:
In addition to the new animals, developer Frontier is promising lots of new jungle-themed additions to Planet Zoo's buildings, scenery, and foliage. You'll have access to what Frontier describes as "lost civilization architecture", as well as bamboo-based structures and an extensive selection of foliage to dot around your zoo. All of these things go together to create what Frontier sees as the chance to build the perfect jungle-themed zoo trek.
Alongside Planet Zoo's new South America Pack DLC, the game is also getting a major free content update on the same day. Frontier is adding a Genealogy feature, so you can see the family tree of your zoo's animals. New Easy and Hard difficulty settings are on the way that will affect how animals behave. There are also changes to animal feeding procedures, guest happiness, and guest education management systems. If you'd like to check out the full range of new content on the way to Planet Zoo as part of this free update, you can do so here.
The South America Pack DLC for Planet Zoo launches on April 7th via Steam. It'll set you back a mere $9.99, so if you're a Planet Zoo aficionado, it'll be worth catching this one.
