Update 1.11.2 and Planet Zoo 3rd Anniversary!

Hayo Zookeepers,

Wippi Abbonibo (or Happy Anniversary in English)! This weekend marks the 3rd Anniversary of Planet Zoo, so we're celebrating by providing you with some exciting new things for you to enjoy in Planet Zoo.

Free update 1.11.2, featuring the brand new Anniversary content is available right now (just update your game!) and will include some fun additions to help you celebrate our third birthday in style! We've also got a few exciting things going on outside of the game itself, so without further ado, let's take a closer look at what's going on for this year's Planet Zoo Anniversary!

First up, we've got a brand new friend to introduce you to - meet the Red Deer, which will shortly be available to add to your zoos!

Planet Zoo 3rd Anniversary - Red Deer

The Red Deer is one of the largest deer species, inhabiting most of Europe along with Northern Africa and West Asia, and is widespread enough to be considered Least Concern status. We're really excited to see the kinds of habitats you create for them in your zoos!

Of course, it wouldn't be an Anniversary celebration without one very important feature - animal balloons! With this free update, your guests will now be able to hold one of four animal balloons: a Tiger, Giraffe, Chimpanzee, or Red Panda! This will be a permanent addition to the game, which we're sure your guests will love!

Planet Zoo 3rd Anniversary - Animal Balloons

Finally in the way of in-game content, we have a limited-time celebration happening in-game this weekend: there will be a special Community Challenge from 4th-6th November! In this special event, you'll receive a boosted animal that has an 80%+ in any gene in return for every 5 you release (with a 1 in 50 chance of having Piebald or Albino colouring!), and will gain a complete Avatar outfit for every 20 animals released - so both you and your animals will be looking your best! Speaking of which...

The time has come, Zookeepers - the moment you've all been waiting for! Very shortly, you'll be able to purchase your very own Planet Zoo Merch to celebrate the third year of simulation running wild! Planet Zoo t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, mugs, posters and more will be available to buy from the official Planet Zoo store - so you can celebrate our third Anniversary in style. Slip into a super comfortable Paws and Leaves sweatshirt, sip from an exclusive habitat mug, or grab a deskpad branded with gorgeous art from the game. Pick your favourite animal and show your love for nature with these cute and colourful designs and products.

Last but not least, what's a good party without a little music? 'You, Me & Other Habitats', a selection of 12 tracks from Planet Zoo and its packs will take you for a trip around the world and will be available to stream from today across your favourite streaming services. You can find it on Spotify.

Planet Zoo - Happy Anniversary

Thank you all so much for being such an amazing community, Planet Zoo wouldn't be the incredible place it is without all of YOU!

Last, but certainly not least, don't forget to join us later today for a celebratory Anniversary Livestream, on Twitch or YouTube where we'll have special guests  RudiRennkamel, PlasticSwans, and ZWED, IN THE STUDIO! We'll be talking Planet Zoo, checking out the new content, doing giveaways, and more! We'll see you there!
