Planet Zoo Grassland Animals Pack Review

Expand your zoo with the Planet Zoo Grassland Animals Pack

It feels like only a mere couple of months ago since we saw the release of the last Planet Zoo animal pack. That’s because it was only a couple of months ago when they released the Twilight Pack, yet here we are again with another review for another great expansion.

This time players are treated to eight new incredible animals, including the armadillo, blue wildebeest, emu, and many more, but for me, the most exciting new creature added with the Grassland Animals Pack is the five species of butterflies.

Instead of simply putting butterflies in an exhibit, zookeepers can now create their very own walkthrough butterfly enclosures. For me, this is one of the most exciting new features for Planet Zoo in a long time.

The Planet Zoo Grassland Animals Pack includes five different species of butterfly, allowing players to build a multispecies exhibit for the first time.

Creating a walkthrough exhibit for flying insects already makes the Grassland Animals Pack one of the best DLCs Planet Zoo has produced to date, and lets players unleash their creativity in a whole new way. Watching butterflies land on guests is also another nice little touch.

New Campaign Scenario

The Grassland Pack takes players to the grasslands of Argentina to teach Tiffany Summers how to properly take care of the animals she currently holds in her mansion. Of course, being a rich socialite, we’re really saving them from her love of dressing them up like fashion models, and stressing them out.

You’ll need to relocate the animals to better surroundings while, in the meantime, trying to get her a permit so she can legally keep them, although with her trying to feed them caviar, perhaps they’re better off in the zoo?

The goals for the campaign are fairly simple, but with the new species and awesome grassland setting, makes for some fun gameplay.

Bronze

To complete the campaign with a bronze star you will need to:

  • Build an Animal Trade Centre
  • Have at least 6 different habitat species in the zoo
  • Have at least 3 different exhibit species in the zoo
  • Hire 1 vet

Silver

  • Built a Research Centre
  • Adopt and place the rescue animals
  • Have all the required animals in the zoo
  • Research 2 habitat species to level 3
  • Research common Warthog to level 4
  • Have at least 2 animals talks in a year
  • Have at least 3 tour points in the zoo
  • Have a tour with an overall star rating of at least 2.0
  • Increase education rating to 3 stars

Gold

  • Adopt and place the rescue animals
  • Have at least 11 different habitat species in the zoo
  • Spend $10,000 on marketing over 2 years
  • Increase average guest happiness to 80%
  • Increase average guest hunger to 70%
  • Have a tour with an overall star rating of at least 3.5
  • Achieve an overall zoo rating of 4 out of 5

These aren’t the most difficult campaign missions to complete, but they’re a great way to learn how to build a butterfly walkthrough and experience some of the new awesome animals.

Summary

With the Planet Zoo Grassland Animals Pack adding more animals than any other Planet Zoo animal pack before it, if you’re looking to expand your zoo, this pack offers incredible value for money.

With the addition of walkthrough butterfly exhibits, even veteran builders will be in for a challenge designing a detailed exhibit with hanging baskets and other new scenery items.

While the butterflies might have stole the show here with this animal pack, it’s undeniable that the other animals included in the pack makes this one of the best animal packs Frontier have released to date.

The full list of new animals, including all species of butterfly:

  • Blue Wildebeest
  • Caracal
  • Emu
  • Maned Wolf
  • Nine-Banded Armadillo
  • Red-Necked Wallaby
  • Striped Hyena
  • Cloudless Sulphur
  • European Peacock
  • Menelaus Blue Morpho
  • Monarch
  • Old World Swallowtail

As always the new Grasslands Animal Pack has been released alongside a free Planet Zoo update, giving players new features, such as the new guided tours, helping players to educate guests as they explore your zoo.

As well as the new guided tours the free update also added new features such as the new Diorama game mode, the bulldozer delete tool, habitat heatmaps and much more, including various bug fixes.
