The beautiful Jaguar, mischievous Capuchin Monkey, unique Giant Anteater, wonderful Red-Eyed Tree Frog and friendly Llama are the latest arrivals to join the impressive menagerie of authentic animals in Planet Zoo. Budding zoologists will need to learn to care for the individual needs of their new additions, as they balance animal welfare with conservation efforts, and research new facilities and enrichment items to ensure a healthy, genetically diverse zoo.

For those who like to let their imagination run wild, Planet Zoo: South America pack offers the chance to build the jungle trek of their dreams, recreating impressive lost civilisation architecture, using bamboo and thatched pieces to create wonderful structures, or letting nature playfully take over by utilising the extensive new selection of foliage.

Alongside the PDLC, Frontier will also be launching a raft of new features and content for existing players as part of the latest free content update. This update will include a new Genealogy tab to enable players to trace the family tree of their animals, additional difficulty settings, research sharing across all franchise zoos, new foliage and enrichment items, and a range of fixes and improvements.
