The game, which is being developed for Microsoft by Behaviour Interactive, will allow gamers to take control of their own zoo, with over 40 animal species to take care of inside its borders. Gamers will have to create habitats for their animals and keep them well fed and protected, while also keeping their visitors happy with things like concession stands and other activities.
The Windows Phone and Windows 8 versions will be synced together so that progress on a Windows Phone device can be saved and then continued again on a Windows 8 tablet or PC, and vice versa. There will also be new Xbox achievements to be unlocked and leaderboards to compare your scores and progress with others.
The game will be free-to-play and will be released sometime later this summer. What do you think of Microsoft releasing this new Zoo Tycoon game for mobile devices?
