Planet Zoo – Minimum and Recommended Requirements And Specs For PC

Planet Zoo has finally arrived — the new game from Frontier Developments. The makers of Planet Coaster and Zoo Tycoon have combined elements of both to bring us the ultimate zoo simulator. If you are wondering what kind of PC you will need to be able to run it, we have the details for you below.

Planet Zoo – Minimum and Recommended Requirements

Minimum

Nothing too outlandish, thankfully, so the vast majority of people out there should have no problem running the game if the last Steam census is anything to go by. The 8GB GPU is perhaps a little surprising, but I suspect that this is just becoming the new normal if you wish to run modern games on the highest settings.

Planet Zoo puts you in a position to build your dream zoo. You will need to look after your animals, build them habitats, and also consider the infrastructure of the zoo itself. You don’t just keep the animals either; you can do research and breeding, releasing animals back into the wild. You will also need to meet the needs of guests and keep the zoo running at a profit, so it provides a solid balancing act of systems to get to grips with.
