More On: Planet Zoo

Five new species representing the land down under are to be unlocked with the new DLC for Planet ZooThe Australia Pack. The Koala, Red Kangaroo, Southern Cassowary, Eastern Blue-Tongues Lizard, and the Dingo (watch your babies closely). Thankfully the pack does not include the Australian Magpie or you would have to close the park for a few months because they are some vicious, territorial little jerks. Also included is new foliage, scenery, and construction pieces to match the native environments of these new species.

While The Australia Pack is paid DLC, coming in at around $10, it will launch alongside the free content update 1.3 available for all Planet Zoo players. This update adds genetics-driven animal color variations, the ability to multi-select members of staff for more streamlined management, new foliage and enrichment items, and a range of quality of life fixes and improvements.  You can read more about the 1.3 update on the official site: https://www.planetzoogame.com/news/planet-zoo-1-3-update

Full press release after the Read More link below. However, there is no indication that the DLC will include Vegemite sandwiches for the concessions stand...
