Destineer division MacSoft on Tuesday announced that it will ship Zoo Tycoon 2 later this month. This sequel to the original Zoo Tycoon, which was published by Aspyr Media, offers not only a first-person view that enables gamers to get close to 3D models of the animals but also new building tools and objects, photo mode options, a zoom mode, new ways to play zookeeper and more.
Zoo Tycoon 2 was developed by Blue Fang Games for Microsoft, which published the PC edition. While MacSoft does not have a product page up on its Web site yet, there is one on the Microsoft Games Web site. The Mac version of Zoo Tycoon 2 will sell for US$39.99; system requirements have not been released yet.
