Planet Zoo
  • Developer: Frontier Developments
  • Publisher: Frontier Developments
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: November 5, 2019

Frontier Developments is known for their simulation video game titles such as the RollerCoaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon. It was a few years ago that the developers opted to make a spiritual successor to RollerCoaster Tycoon with the release of Planet Coaster. Now later this year a new video game spiritual successor for Zoo Tycoon is set to launch, Planet Zoo. The video game title will act similar to the original Zoo Tycoon franchise with players running along with managing a successful zoo for guests to visit. However, there will, of course, be a variety of improvements made such as animals featuring a specific artificial intelligence.

Again, much like the original series and other video game titles, Frontier Developments have created, Planet Zoo will still offer a good amount of strategy. Not only will you have to make sure your guests that attend are happy but that the zoo pulls in a profit, you have an adequate staff readily available to maintain the day-to-day operations and of course your animals are not only healthy but secure in a suitable environment.


Conan Unconquered
  • Developer: Petroglyph
  • Publisher: Funcom
  • Platforms: PC
  • Release: May 30, 2019

Conan Unconquered may have flown a bit under the radar for some, but a new Conan game is coming out this year. It’s a bit different then what you may have seen from the franchise these past few years, but it looks like Conan Unconquered will be a real-time survival strategy game. Set in the Conan the Barbarian world players are forced into building their stronghold and build up an army to fight off waves of enemies. As you progress, you’ll seek out new ways to manage your resources and upgrade various aspects of your empire such as technologies and defenses. Likewise, this game will offer two-player co-op where players will share the same base as they manage to last the next wave of enemies that come their way.
