Planet Zoo heads for adventure with the all-new Africa Pack

Featuring five sought-after animals, 180+ stunning scenery pieces, and an exciting new timed scenario

Cambridge, UK – 15 June 2021 Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV) announced today an exciting new expansion for the ultimate zoo simulation, Planet Zoo. Inspired by Africa’s diverse cultures and rich ecosystems, Planet Zoo: Africa Pack arrives on Steam on 22 June 2021 for a suggested retail price of £7.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.

Packed full of new content for zookeepers to test their skills, Planet Zoo: Africa Pack introduces a selection of extraordinary animals to the game. The sociable Meerkat – a sought after fan favourite sure to delight guests as they create their tunnel homes using an authentic new digging behaviour; the endearing Fennec Fox, whose small stature and enormous ears help it to stay cool on the African plains; the amazing African Penguin, whose fun side comes out to play with the new Disco Ball enrichment item; and the striking Southern White Rhinoceros. 

Alongside the four new habitat animals available in Planet Zoo: Africa Pack, is the Sacred Scarab Beetle exhibit animal. Zoo guests will watch in amazement as these impressive insects roll their signature dung balls.

In addition to this exciting range of creatures, players can unleash their creativity with over 180 new pieces of scenery inspired by the colourful architecture of North Africa. Zookeepers can use everything from mudbrick, vivid mosaic tiles, brightly painted benches, and a wide range of new foliage, including tall green palm trees, to create immersive experiences for their guests as they take in the continent’s rich culture.

Also included in the pack is a brand new timed scenario, which unfolds in a secluded oasis bazaar. Things could get heated, as players work to solve problems and transform a struggling attraction into the perfect environment for both animals and guests. 

Planet Zoo: Africa Pack launches alongside a free base-game update that brings a range of extras and improvements. This includes behaviour updates, habitat webcams, vista points and a free Timed Scenario set in gorgeous Guatemala.
