Zoo Tycoon returns for Xbox 360 and Xbox One


2:08 PM on 06.10.2013



Huh? Zoo Tycoon is coming back? It wasn't mentioned during Microsoft's E3 press conference, but apparently a new installment in the series is headed to both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The video above was posted on the official Xbox YouTube channel today.

This new game is said to have "all your favorite zoo animals available for a new level of up close and personal interactions with the animals and zoo, and with intuitive controls and fun tutorials that are enjoyable for players of all ages."

My guess is that it'll be heavily Kinect-based -- at least the up-close interactions, anyway. I adore Zoo Tycoon, so here's hoping it's not a total departure. The description does mention "creating," "customizing," and "building." I like the sound of that.

Brighten your morning with I am Bread

It's been over a month and, conceptually, I am Bread still tickles me. I'm giggling over the prospect of sentient bread going on a quest to become toasted (what happens next?). Ahead of the game's Steam Early Access release ...more

Even failing looks fun in Heat Signature

Just like with Gunpoint, it's a joy to watch designer Tom Francis play Heat Signature, wonky wrench physics and all, while it's still in development. It's as if he's making the game solely for himself and, hey, if the rest o...more
