Our first look at Planet Zoo gameplay was beamed in courtesy of the PC Gaming Show, From Frontier, the creators of Planet Coaster, Planet Zoo provides players with their very own zoological sandbox to build to their whim. There’s a full campaign included as well as a sandbox mode to go wild in. Ba dum tss.
Players are given full control over the habits, designing the right flora and play equipment to keep the animals happy and the guests paying.
And look, I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but odds are good this will be the greatest thing ever created by humans. The poo hoovers are already an early highlight, as are the hippos that created the mess. If I were an able modder I would mod Planet Zoo to change the rhino pooping animation to Ace Ventura squeezing out and just watch the accolades roll in.
Planet Zoo will be coming to Steam on November 5th, 2019. There’s a Deluxe Edition as well which includes access to a Planet Zoo beta, three exclusive animals (Pygmy Hippo, Thomson’s Gazelle & Komodo Dragon), a set of wallpapers (whoop!) and the soundtrack. Those exclusive animals are some big hitters beyond a premium edition, which is a bit sad to see, but that’s where we are in this day and age.
