Planet Zoo announced by Frontier Developments
The teem behind some really great tycoon and simulator titles, like Elite: Dangerous and Planet Coaster, has another excellent title to add to their repertoire of fine simulation and tycoon titles. That new game is Planet Zoo, a newly announced zoo simulation that has you designing, building and managing the zoo of your dreams.
The game features “authentic living animals, rich management, and limitless creativity”. Frontier want this new entry to continue the pedigree they’ve built of endless fun gameplay and tons of customization via the magic of mods and player-created content. You’ll have to manage a wide array of animals by crafting the perfect environmental conditions for them, all while trying to keep visitors interested and spending money. And much like some of their other games, such as Jurassic World Evolution, there will be research you have to undertake to unlock new beasts and attractions. We’ll just have to wait and see if it’s possible to unleash a hungry pride of lions onto unsuspecting park goers.
“This is the zoo management game we’ve wanted to make for many years,’ said Jonny Watts, Chief Creative Officer of Frontier. ‘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.”
Planet Zoo is due out for PC this Fall. Check out the new gameplay trailer for the title down below.
