Frontier Developments plc (AIM: FDEV, ‘Frontier’) has just announced an exciting new expansion for the highly acclaimed zoo simulation game, Planet Zoo. Get ready to embark on a captivating journey through dunes, deserts, and dusty plains as Planet Zoo: Arid Animal Pack makes its way to PC via Steam on June 20th. Priced at £7.99/$9.99/€9.99, this expansion brings a mesmerizing selection of animals to your virtual zoo. But that’s not all! All players will also be treated to a range of new features and updates in a free base game update.

Arid Animal Pack introduces eight remarkable new species, each one adapted to thrive in some of the harshest and driest climates on the planet. Get up close and personal with the Dromedary Camel, instantly recognizable by its solitary hump. Encounter the African Crested Porcupine, sporting its iconic head crest and spiky quills. Witness the majesty of the Black Rhino, the elegance of the Addax, and the captivating beauty of the stripe-legged Somali Wild Ass. Admire the endearing Sand Cat, the sprightly Dama Gazelle, and the venomous Desert Horned Viper Exhibit Animal.

Prepare to be amazed by the behaviors of these new animals. Keep a safe distance from the Dromedary Camel, as it may spit if approached too closely. Watch in delight as the small yet playful Sand Cat interacts with enrichment items like Rubbing Pads and Cardboard Boxes. Listen as the Somali Wild Ass brays to communicate with its companions. And keep an eye out for the African Crested Porcupine near its burrow—it may raise its distinctive quills when feeling cautious.

In addition to these eight intriguing species, aspiring zookeepers will have the opportunity to test their management skills in a new Campaign Mode scenario. Join Tiffany Summers, a prolific socialite, as she arrives in the Arabian Desert, determined to transform the plot of land she received from her father into a magnificent animal oasis. Work tirelessly to prepare the park for its grand opening and prove your ability to handle the heat.

As part of the Arid Animal Pack, a free base-game update will offer players a range of exciting extras, enhancements, and quality-of-life improvements. The new Staff Flexi-colour tool allows everyone from keepers to security personnel to showcase vibrant new colorways at the team or individual level. For players interested in capturing their parks and creations in unique ways, the Scenic Mode Camera and Cinematic Route Editor provide fantastic opportunities to unleash their creativity.
