Planet Zoo is the ultimate zoo simulation featuring authentic living animals, rich management, and limitless creativity, players can build and manage a truly modern zoo where animal welfare and conservation comes first.

From the makers of Planet Coaster (2016) and Jurassic World Evolution (2018) comes the ultimate zoo simulation, featuring authentic living animals, rich management, and limitless creativity. Build and manage a truly modern zoo where animal welfare and conservation comes first.

Planet Zoo presents the most authentic animals in videogame history. From playful lion cubs to mighty elephants, every animal in Planet Zoo is an individual who thinks, feels and explores the world you build around them. They care about their surroundings and each other, with complex environmental and social needs. Nurture your animals throughout their lives, study and manage every species to see them thrive, and help them raise young to pass their genes onto future generations.

Manage your own zoo in an expressive world that reacts to every choice you make. Focus on the big picture or go hands-on and look after the smallest details. Thrill visitors with prestigious animals and famous exhibits, develop your zoo and research new technologies, and release animals back into the wild to repopulate the planet.

Frontier Developments announced an exciting expansion for the ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. Players can discover unique species and embrace the Halloween spirit with Planet Zoo: Twilight Pack, arriving on Steam on October 18, 2022 for a suggested retail price of £7.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.

Planet Zoo: Twilight Pack invites players into the shadows to welcome five elusive new species into their zoos. Introducing the rascally Raccoon, whose signature black mask enhances its vision; the cunning Red Fox, with its razor-sharp hearing; the inquisitive Common Wombat, with its infamous cube-shaped droppings; the solitary Striped Skunk, whose pungent spray deters certain pesky predators; and the sociable Egyptian Fruit Bat Exhibit Animal, whose walkthrough exhibit will excite guests as wings swoop above their heads.

In addition to these captivating critters, zookeepers can unleash their creativity with over 200 pieces of eerie scenery including castle-inspired building pieces; complete with grinning gargoyles, and even a portcullis. Adding even more atmosphere to players’ zoos is a range of petrifying plants, including the twisted Bristlecone pine tree, shade-loving Ivy and bioluminescent ghost fungus. Share the spooky spirit with guests with the help of glowing pumpkins and bubbling cauldrons.

Planet Zoo: Twilight Pack also includes an immersive new Career scenario, arriving for the first time since Planet Zoo’s debut DLC. Zookeepers will work to transform a mysterious zoo in the depths of Transylvania, after the notorious villain, Dominic Meyers, hastily abandoned it. They’ll be able to adopt and care for inquisitive animal arrivals, build spooktacular habitats, and restore the zoo to its former glory.

Zookeepers will also enjoy a free base-game update, which brings a range of features and enhancements, including the ability for Educators to hold exhibits during animal talks. Alongside a number of quality-of-life updates, players can now get even more creative with their exhibits thanks to customisable 2D backdrops, as well as marveling at stunning piebald colour variants for select species.

Unleash your creativity with the next evolution of Planet Coaster’s best-in-class creation mechanics. Craft stunning scenery and habitats, dig lakes and rivers, raise hills and mountains, and carve tunnels and caves as you build your own zoo. See your animals and visitors respond to your creative vision, and share your designs with friends in Planet Zoo’s online community. Bring the world’s greatest designs home to your own zoo for your animals and visitors to enjoy.

Planet Zoo is available for PC (Steam) at £34.99 / $44.99 / €44.99 with a bevy of DLCs.
