Planet Zoo Is Offering Us Some More Animals From The Southeast

Planet Zoo

The next update for Planet Zoo will bring us more animals from Southeast Asia and a few more things to experience in Planet Zoo in general

More animals are on the way to Planet Zoo for those that are looking to add a bit of the Southeast Asian flair to the game with this new DLC. A new bit of DLC that is going to be bringing us eight new creatures to play with in the playgrounds that Frontier Developments has crafted for us over all of this time. Not all of them may be something you have been looking for in Planet Zoo but that does not mean we will not have the option to add them in on March 30th. It will give us some new gameplay to work with if we so chose to and that is always welcome to keep great games constantly flowing on our systems.

For those looking at what specifically we are getting in Planet Zoo, it looks like the new creatures are the Clouded Leopard, Sun Bear, Proboscis Monkey, Binturong, Malayan Tapir, Ussuri Dhole, North Sulawesi Babirusa, and Giant Malaysian Leaf Insect. This is why I used creatures instead of animals as the Leaf Insect does not truly fall under that category and is more of an exhibit thing than one we have to build an entire enclosure around. It is nice to see all of these added in given the time we live in and how much some of us want to go to a zoo again. Planet Zoo will be the closest we can get for a while and with each new expansion, it gives us so much more to enjoy and experience.

Planet Zoo — Southeast Asia Animal Pack

Hailing from the breathtaking Southeast Asia region, the Clouded Leopard, Sun Bear, Proboscis Monkey, Binturong, Malayan Tapir, Ussuri Dhole, North Sulawesi Babirusa, and Giant Malaysian Leaf Insect join the impressive list of existing habitat and exhibit animals. Offering the most new animals of any Planet Zoo pack to date, budding zookeepers can test their skills as they handcraft a stunning array of habitats to keep their newest arrivals healthy and happy.

The Clouded Leopard is one of the spectacular new inclusions, a medium-sized arboreal cat residing in forests and grassland. Secretive and solitary, players will have the opportunity to help protect and raise this vulnerable species.

Another fan favorite is the honey-loving Sun Bear. Naturally docile, it’s not classed as a predator, and can happily coexist with other species. Sun bears love swimming and foraging before lazing away in their hammocks. While requiring relatively low land space, players will need to dedicate plenty of off-ground room for their climbing craze.

Then there’s the imitable Proboscis Monkey. Planet Zoo’s first swimming primate, it splashes through the water with bespoke paddling animations not shared by any other animal. Proboscis monkeys are highly sociable, and players must keep them in groups to ensure optimal welfare. They also have a strong need for a variety of enrichment items, favoring moveable toys and foraging feeders.

Guests will be enthralled as they try to spot a glimpse of the Giant Malaysian Leaf Insect, the only exhibit animal in this pack. This remarkable creature is a pro at evading predators, having evolved to resemble a leaf, even mimicking the appearance of bite marks. When this piece of sentient shrubbery moves, it rocks back and forth just like a real leaf being blown by the wind.

In addition, there’s also a brand new timed scenario based in Perak, Malaysia. Here players will take charge of a struggling zoo set in a tropical rainforest biome and attempt to reverse its fortunes by placing facilities, scenery, and flora with Planet Zoo’s signature piece-by-piece construction and landscaping tools.

Planet Zoo: Southeast Asia Animal Pack launches alongside a free update that brings a range of extras and improvements to the game. This includes multiple zoo entrances, video billboards, fresh scenario rewards, customizable watercolor and volume, and the ability to save franchise zoos as sandboxes. There’s also a timed scenario called Bernie's First Steps in which players expand an early version of Goodwin House into a thriving country park.

Are you glad to see all of these creatures coming to Planet Zoo here or were you looking for something else to come along with? Should we wait to see a whole new insect version of all of this or should they keep adding in insects to make their own little section of the game? Where do you think we will go next in the lands and animals or will it all be wrapping up soon? Let us all know down in the comments what is on your mind. If I have more for Planet Zoo to share, it will be on the site for you. Just keep on coming back to see and hear all of that as we get it.
