As the trailer unfolds, you can see that Planet Zoo places you at the helm of your very own zoo, where the animals are your responsibility and building attractions is your passion. With a collection of over 100 species of animals across various DLC packs, the possibilities are as vast as the savannah itself. To unlock all these magnificent creatures in the console port, the Ultimate Edition, priced at £99.99, will be your ticket to paradise.

Regardless of your choice, pre-ordering the game grants you a special bonus: three exclusive animals—the Pygmy Hippopotamus, Komodo Dragon, and Thomson's Gazelle—to kickstart your zoo with a bang!

But that's not all, my friends! The developer promises a menagerie of 14 DLC packs to be released in the future. With the Ultimate Edition acting as your personal season pass, you'll be granted access to all these exciting expansions. And fear not, if you prefer to pick and choose, the DLC packs will also be available for individual purchase.

Let the countdown begin! Planet Zoo: Console Edition is set to launch on March 26, 2024, courtesy of the talented team at Frontier Developments. Get ready to unleash your inner zookeeper and embark on an adventure that will make your heart race with excitement.
