Have you been playing Frontier Developments’ Planet Zoo for the last couple of years, and feel there is a gap left over in your creations that would be perfectly suited to a capybara, platypus, wild water buffalo or one of several other wetlands creatures not available in-game? The development team has today confirmed that Planet Zoo: Wetlands Animal Pack is now available to purchase as additional DLC for the base Planet Zoo game at a price of £7.99 / $9.99 / €9.99 / AU$14.50.
Those who purchase the pack will be able to build enclosures for, and add to their animal line-up, eight new species. These include the laid-back Capybara, the remarkable-looking Platypus, the graceful Asian Small-Clawed Otter, the peeping Spectacled Caiman, the agile Nile Lechwe, the magnificent Wild Water Buffalo, the elegant Red-Crowned Crane, and the distinctive Danube Crested Newt. But simply plopping them down in an existing zoo is not enough, as you will need to provide enrichments to keep them happy. Watch as the Capybara bathes under the Hot Water Tap, or find the Platypus using its webbed feet to burrow into its home. The Small Underwater Feeder, Underwater Buoy, and Natural Water Jet will also add comfort and fun to habitats.
Planet Zoo: Wetlands Animal Pack also provides players with the chance to try their hand at an exciting new timed scenario set in Brazil’s breath-taking Pantanal region, one of the largest and most diverse wetlands ecosystems in the world. Budding zookeepers must help to rescue animals who cannot return to the wild and ensure they can truly flourish, in this welfare and conservation-focused challenge.
Not interested in this expansion? Players can simply update their game to receive a free selection of extras and enhancements, including roaming educator talks, a new ‘Explore Cam’ feature that allows players to experience their zoos at guest height, new water customisation options, and more.
