The South America pack trailer was released just a few days ago on 31 March 2020. Planet Zoo’s Arctic pack is currently on sale on Steam at £7.19 which includes 10% off.
On 7 April 2020 we will also get a new Planet Zoo update. The free update 1.2 brings new features and improvements based on community feedback.
Here’s a brief overview of what the new update will bring:
- Genealogy: The Genealogy UI will allow you to select an animal and see which animals are parents, siblings, offspring, and mates. You can select each and any animal, enabling you to see animal bloodlines and close relations. There will be more genetic information available which is a nice-to-have as part of the game.
- New Difficulty Settings: New settings include easy, medium (current game difficulty) and hard. The difficulty settings will affect a range of things including how quickly animals get stressed, how fast staff gets tired, and how much money guests are willing to spend. You will be able to change the difficulty setting at any time.
- Animal Feeding: This is a big and exciting update for me (and for many Planet Zoo players). Keepers will fill feeding stations more efficiently, food prep time will be the same regardless of animal, keepers will sprint to and from habitats, and juveniles will cost less to feed.

South America Pack
The South America pack will include over 250 new scenery pieces. Of course, these are inspired by South America so will include jungle items, Aztec and even rainforest foliage pieces.
You’ll be able to learn about five unique new animals which you can care for in your zoo. The South America DLC is destined to be a true Amazonian adventure, and I personally can’t wait to get stuck in.
