Redwood City, Calif - May 24, 2011

RockYou®, a leading social gaming company, will soon unveil the next game in the playful Zoo World™ franchise, Zoo World™ 2. In Zoo World 2 players can collect animals from all over the world and breed adorable baby animals. Building on the original zoo simulation game - with over 50 million installs to date - Zoo World 2 will offer more interaction with a diverse set of species, deep customization options, and life-like animals.

Animals in Zoo World 2 express their moods in response to gameplay as zookeepers nurture their baby animals through adulthood. The new title also offers more ways for players to creatively design and decorate their own zoos. Whether players want a lush, wild jungle, a natural African savannah, or an Arctic snow setting, the possibilities are endless with the ability to layout paths, fences, water, decorations, exhibits, and more. Players can also lend a helping hand to fellow zookeepers, caring for their animals while they are away.

“Fans all over the world are very excited about the release of Zoo World 2 and their expectations are high,” said Jennifer Gee, Executive Producer at RockYou.

“The team has worked hard to bring players a zoo experience that captures the charm of adult and baby animals alike. The Zoo World 2 graphics are best-in-class. We can’t wait to visit and showcase the unique zoos that our zookeepers will create.”

Zoo World 2 will launch on Facebook on June 8th. Prepare to bring your zoo to life, in the next game in the popular Zoo World franchise!
