Planet Zoo is getting a two-week PC beta

The upcoming construction and business management simulation Planet Zoo is getting a PC beta next week.

The beta begins on September 24 and runs through October 8.  According to publisher Frontier, the beta will feature the first scenario from the game’s Career mode and a biome from Franchise mode.

Planet Zoo has a narrative-driven Career mode where players will be introduced to a cast of colorful characters in a globe-trotting campaign, placing them in charge of zoos around the world.

Franchise mode is a little different. It will have players build, manage, research, and develop their own zoo franchise.

The game is a spiritual successor to Zoo Tycoon. Frontier has published similar games in the past, including Planet Coaster and Jurassic World Evolution.

Planet Zoo will launch exclusively on Steam on November 5, 2019. The beta is only open to fans who pre-order the Deluxe Edition.
