Planet Zoo, frontier games upcoming animal sim whisked us all off to warmer climates today with the release of a brand new trailer. Check out the Savannah biome.
Revealed in a brand new gameplay video, the Savannah biome is a trip to the Indian Subcontinent and a glimpse of warmer climates. The new theme is crammed with animals. Rhinos, elephants, antelope, and the odd anteater are just some of the animals that players will need to care for, keep, and corral back into their pens should they scape. The Savanah biome is, much like the rest of the Planet Zoos, an opportunity for players to get a different look and feel to the core gameplay we’ve already seen. Keeping the animals healthy, your guests happy, and everything running smoothly doesn’t appear to change much in this new environment.
More Than A Petting Zoo
Of course, new animals aren’t the only thing you’ll notice if you check out the Savanah Biome. The aesthetic and architecture take on a colorful flavor that is intended to reflect the architecture and influences of the Indian subcontinent. This extends into the animal enclosures too, allowing players to craft biomes that aren’t just functional but reflect the natural environment of the animals. Watch closely and you’ll catch a glimpse of vegetation common to each of the new animal’s natural habitat. There’s a ton of other things touched on during the new gameplay video for Planet Zoo. From water treatment to animal entertainment, and playing vet too.
