Frontier Developments has announced the first premium DLC for Planet Zoo, the Arctic Pack. It will be available on Steam starting on December 17 for $9.99.
The Arctic Pack premium DLC launches alongside a free update for existing players including a range of new features, improvements, and fixes.
The pack adds four new habitat animals: Arctic Wolf, Polar Bear, Reindeer, and Dall Sheep. Also, there are two new arctic-themed scenarios: the mountainous and snowy tundra biome, based in Norway and featuring the Aurora Sky, and the arid desert biome in Mexico. They will set a series of challenges in front of players, focusing on expanding and maintaining existing zoos while ensuring animal welfare and educating guests.
Finally, the free update contains a range of new features for existing players: a new aging slider to slow the animal life-cycle, immediate family members have been added to the animal info panels, new heat maps including crime and inbreeding, new nature assets, enrichment items, and a range of fixes and improvements.
