The creators of Planet Coaster and Jurassic Park Evolution are returning with another simulator, this time the rather lovely looking Planet Zoo.
Featuring ‘authentic living animals and rich management’, players will build and a manager a zoo with animal welfare and conservation the aim of the game. Sign us up.
Claiming ‘the most authentic animals in video game history’, Planet Zoo features individual animals who ‘think, feel and explore the world around them’. It’s up to you to nurture your animals, study them and manage every species to see them thrive. You’ll get to build a zoo entirely of your own making. You can focus on the bigger picture or look after the smaller aspects of the zoo, choosing famous exhibits, developing your zoo and researching new tech, and releasing your animals back into the wild.
Jonny Watts, Chief Creative Officer of Frontier;
‘This is the zoo management game we’ve wanted to make for many years. We’ve challenged ourselves to build on the games we’ve made before and to carry the great legacy of classics like the Zoo Tycoon series forward. We’re taking everything we’ve learned from our past work and focusing on modern values – incredible authenticity, rich management, limitless creativity and community sharing – to make our best-ever simulation game. We hope you’ll join us when Planet Zoo launches later this year.’
