Planet Zoo has been easily one of the best games of 2019, and I had been itching to get my hands on more content for the game – cue in Arctic Pack and my Winter break could not have gone better! With a lot of new additions and features, Arctic Pack rejuvenated my joy of playing Planet Zoo. New animals and environments have been added, all with their own conditions and requirements for upkeep, and the whole gameplay loop is just so satisfying.
A total of four new animals have been added – Arctic Wolf, Polar Bear, Reindeer, and Dall Sheep. Sadly, while there are Arctic biomes to create, not enough new plants and trees have been added to give the proper Arctic feel. this might be my only gripe with the DLC pack so far, otherwise there’s a lot here to invest some long hours back into building your favorite zoo.
