The Planet Zoo Update 1.7
The Planet Zoo Update 1.7 Frontier Developments PLC

Have you ever dreamed of putting up your own zoo? If so, you definitely need to try The Planet Zoo. It's developed by Frontier Developments, and it's all about creating and managing your own zoo.

That said, the massive 1.7 update introduces new features and an improved gameplay experience. This can be downloaded for free on all platforms. If you want to know what’s in store for you, read on to know the best things about this new update.

New Animals

While this update is free for all players, there are extras for those who bought the North America Animal Pack. You can populate your zoo with these eight new animals:

  • American Alligator
  • Black-tailed Prairie Dog
  • California Sea Lion
  • Cougar
  • Moose
  • North American Beaver
  • Arctic Fox
  • American Bullfrog

On top of that, you will also get new toy and food enrichment items, including the Beaver Pool, Skittle Feeder, Piñata Pronghorn, and Melon Feeder. Again, these things are only available for those who have purchased the North America Animal Pack.

Free New Content

Don't have that pack? Here is the new stuff for you. First is the new Underwater Herbivore Feeder available for the North American Beaver. Second, deep swimming behaviors have been added for big cats, such as the Bengal Tiger, Siberian Tiger, and Jaguar. Keep in mind that you can only enable this new behavior for Jaguars if you have purchased the South America Pack.

In terms of new features, you can now place Animal Talk Seating in your zoo. These are found in the Facilities Browser and can be linked to the Animal Talk Points to expand the guest capacity of your animal talks. This allows you to fill a venue with more guests and have them marvel at and learn more about the cute and majestic animals.

Since the zoo is a tourist attraction, you can expect some guests to be chaotic and unruly. To maintain peace and order, you can place new guest barriers that will help keep things organized at all times.

If you want to learn more about animals, the Zoopedia is now filled with new filter options and categories. These will help you find the specific information easily. You can search for animals based on the biome, place of origin, and conservation status.

You can find details about bug fixes and improvements in the official patch notes.

The Planet Zoo Update 1.7 is now available on PC.
