Planet Zoo: Africa Pack announced, release soon

Planet Zoo

In keeping with the current temperatures, the zoo simulation Planet Zoo will soon take you to very hot regions. This is ensured by the release of the paid Africa Pack, which is currently planned to appear on June 22, 2021 - i.e. next Tuesday. A specific price is not yet known. But should this move in the regions you are used to, around ten euros should be due again.

As the name of the DLC already suggests, everything revolves around Africa and the flora and fauna associated with it. You can expect animals like the cute meerkat, the beefy white rhinoceros and the nimble fennec fox. In addition to these land animals, you can also have the African Penguin move into your Planet Zoo park (buy now 19.99 €). However, all of these animal inhabitants have certain requirements for their habitat, which you should definitely consider when planning. Furthermore, the DLC offers a new scenario in which you end up in an oasis. There you have a limited amount of time and infrastructure available to turn the wasteland into a paradise for both guests and animals. In addition, a total of 180 new in-game objects in the African style are available, with the help of which you can expand and decorate your park.

The trailer below gives you a first taste of the Africa Pack from Planet Zoo Message finds. We have also put some screenshots in our online gallery.
