Planet Zoo is getting some spooky night-themed DLC just in time for Halloween

As the nights start drawing in and the spectre of Halloween looms on the horizon, Planet Zoo is getting just a little bit spooky with the announcement of its new nocturnal-themed Twilight Pack DLC, launching on 18th October.

The big draw of Planet Zoos DLC is always its creature addtions, and the Twilight Pack brings five new nocturnal species: the Racoon, Red Fox, Common Wombat, Striped Skunk, and Egyptian Fruit Bat. The first four of those are free-roaming, meaning you can plop them wherever you please, while the Egyptian Fruit Bat is restricted to a walkthrough exhibit.

Players looking to infuse their zoos with a touch of gothic flair for Halloween can make use of the Twilight Packs 200 new scenery items, ranging from castle-themed building parts – including gargoyles and an imposing portcullis – to glowing pumpkins and cauldrons. Even the flora is getting a bit spooky, with Bristlecone pine trees, ivy, and bioluminescent ghost fungus.
