For those looking for a brand new challenge, the new Planet Zoo update could be right down your street. The developer of the game, Frontier, has released a big update to the animal management title that should keep fans happy.

The recent DLC expansion, which is a continuation of Planet Zoo‘s Australia pack and the Arctic Pack, the new Southeast Asia Pack aims to introduce a grand total of eight new creatures for you to care for in your zoo. Frontier has stated that this pack is their very first Animal Pack DLC and that the focus around it is centred on solely giving players more animals to care for.

What Animals are included in the Southeast Asia Pack?

Players will be greeted with some exotic new animals to add to their enclosure. These are the Clouded Leopard, Sun Bear, Proboscis Monkey, North Sulawesi Babirusa, Binturong, Ussuri Dhole, Malayan Tapir, and Giant Malaysian Leaf Insect. Caring for animals like the Clouded Leopard will require you to make sure you place climbing items inside its habitat due to its love of spending time in high areas, this goes for the Sun Bear also.

New Challenge incoming!

Planet Zoo‘s Southeast Asia Animal Pack will also include a new timed scenario challenge for players, adding in something a little different. Set in Perak, Malaysia, players can get involved in restoring a struggling zoo whose funding fell through mid-way through in a tropical rainforest ecosystem.

Release date and price

The Planet Zoo: Southeast Asia Animal Pack will be available to purchase for £7.99 ($9.99, €9.99) on Steam from 30 March. The Southeast Asia Pack DLC will launch alongside a free update for all players that will introduce a wide range of features like more zoo entrances, adjust the colour of water, customize billboards, and many more things to explore. You can head on over to Steam now to purchase the game if you haven’t already.
