Australia is coming to Planet Zoo, mate

Planet Zoo is going down under next with an Australia Pack that will introduce new animals like kangaroos, koalas, dingoes, cassowaries, and the eastern blue-tongued lizard. The Australia Pack for Planet Zoo (opens in new tab) will arrive on August 25—peep the brief trailer above.

In addition to these beautiful new animals, the pack will include new scenarios and sprinkle in over 200 new construction options, scenery, animal toys, and indigenous plants.

Even if you don't purchase the Australia Pack (priced at $10), Planet Zoo's 1.3 update will accompany it and provide some free improvements for all players, including more color variation for animals, a new animal food management tab, an additional sandbox map, a new timed scenario, vending machines for your park, and other changes. You can learn more about update 1.3 here (opens in new tab).

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
