The Xbox One version of Zoo Tycoon is also very interactive via the Kinect using voice as well as hand signals for different interactions in the game. Zoo Tycoon was also given away free with the purchase of a 12-month subscription of Xbox Live Gold at Gamestop retailers during September 2014 and maybe October(while supplies last).

Community ChallengesEdit

Microsoft hinted at plans about in-game updates to release in reference to real world events. Designed to raise player awareness of the state of the environment and animals on our world. These in-game updates to real life events will lead to in-game challenges players can participate in. Often designed by the Frontier team in partnership with groups such as the association of zoo's and aquariums. If players meet these real life related challenges, Microsoft will be putting money aside for donations to help conservation efforts.

The first community challenge was the Barbary Lion Dilemma.

Level systemEdit

New to the Zoo Tycoon franchise is a level system. All of the adoptable animals will have a level between two and 15. As soon as an animal reaches level 15, it may be released into the wild. The same helicopter that dropped the animal off will come back and take the animal to an animal reserve somewhere around the globe. After your animal is in the wild, the player will still get notifications, such as "your elephant has found a mate." Also, buildings can be levelled up to level three. Upgrading facilities allows the player to hire more staff and upgrade the staff's job performance. However, leveled units and buildings will cost more money, though they do attract more guests. Another system is the zoo leveling system, which allows the player to increase your zoo level by building more exhibits and concessions. The zoo can also be levelled by upgrading said exhibits and concessions. Each time a new level is reached, the player will be rewarded with new exhibits, animals, facilities, concessions, and marketing techniques. 

Game modesEdit

Zoo Tycoon has three different game modes. First of all the freeform mode, or creative mode. In this mode the player has infinite money, allowing the player to create any zoo they want within a set "Zoo Limit". The challenge mode gives the player small challenges every 10 to 15 minutes and unlocks achievements if the challenges are succeeded. Campaign mode also returns from the previous two games, where the player has to built a zoo and achieve pre-set goals to advance to the next. 

FeaturesEdit

Six biomes, Savannah, Tropical Rainforest, Alpine, Tundra, Grassland and Temperate Forest, make an appearance in Zoo Tycoon, as does the Zoopedia from Zoo Tycoon 2. New to the series are three Kinect features used to interact with the animals: a feed station for the player to feed the elephants, giraffes and antelopes, a hose to clean the elephants, bears, rhinos and hippos, and an stimulation station for playing with the lions, tigers and chimpanzees.

Xbox Store DLC Edit

Unlike the original two games, this installment of the series includes content downloadable from the Xbox Store. Currently, there are only four.

Future DLCEdit

  • TBA

TriviaEdit

  • The Meerkat is shown as its own, but is in the same family as the mongoose.
  • The Pronghorn is shown as an antelope, but is more closely related to giraffes.
