Frontier announced at Gamescom that the beta for Planet Zoo will be playable from September 24th to October 8th, ahead of the full release on Steam in November.
The full game will be coming to PC via Steam on November 5th, but fans will be able to dive into the beta next month.
The beta will give players access to the first scenario from Career Mode, and also one biome from Franchise mode. You will be able to playtest some of the animals, including some brand new and as yet unannounced animals that will be available in the full game.
You can pre-order Planet Zoo right now, as well as the Deluxe Edition, which will give you access to the beta as well as three exclusive animals, soundtrack, and some high-quality wallpapers. Check out the pre-order trailer below.
