As well as the animals, you can ensure that your zoo looks the part with over 60 new scenery pieces to really recreate that rustic feel. Keepers will be able to place straw bales, rustic planters, weather vanes and wind pumps, alongside picket fences, wooden wheels and much more besides.

Planet Zoo Barnyard Animal Pack - New scenery and guests

Planet Zoo: Barnyard Animal Pack also features a brand new scenario, set on a once-neglected farm in the rolling New Zealand countryside. This scenario features a welcome return from Tiffany Summers who needs your help to turn a rundown old farm into a thriving animal sanctuary after her Father bought it on a whim when he misheard her saying that she needed some new coats and NOT new goats!

Free Update 1.17

We're also rolling out a free update alongside the Barnyard Animal Pack! The main feature of the free update is a brand new Animal Encounter habitat, where guests can enjoy a close-up experience with certain animals, including species from the base game and other DLC packs. Once the habitat reaches certain criteria, they will be able to interact and maybe even take a selfie with some of their favourite animals if they are in the mood, including the Quokka, Llama and the Ring-Tailed Lemur!
