Frontier Developments today announced Planet Zoo: Aquatic Pack as the next DLC for its complex zoo simulator, alongside its release date.
The Aquatic Pack DLC expands Planet Zoo's existing content with five new animals, loads of new foliage, scenario and construction items fitting its aqua theme, alongside a new timed scenario set in Oregon.
When the DLC drops next week, players will be able to add the majestic King Penguin, Diamondback Terrapin, Giant Otter, Cuvier's Dwarf Caiman, and Grey Seal to their zoos.

The Planet Zoo: Aquatic Pack DLC also introduces deep swimming, a new mechanic tied to its water-loving animals that requires players to take into account some very specific needs if they plan on keeping them happy.
The DLC's 170+ foliage, scenario and construction pieces include "eye-catching murals depicting wild jungles and icy tundra," and "reflective materials embracing water’s mirror-like qualities," alongside "graceful new animal sculptures," but also "cascading waterfalls," adding to the already impressive suite of customization options available for players' zoos.
Lastly, the new timed scenario set in Oregon, USA will test their abilities to build and manage a zoo on a drained riverbed while dealing with "lots of elevation" and tight space restrictions.
The Planet Zoo: Aquatic Pack DLC releases on December 8 and will be available on PC, for the price of £7.99 / $9.99 / €9.99.
