Official CityVille Podcast (04/09/11): Storage for buildings and a zoo coming soon

Taking a page from FarmVille, Zynga has launched an official podcast for CityVille, led by Community Manager Clerk Casey. The first edition of the Official CityVille Podcast gave us a recap of new features added to the game recently, and also gave us a sneak peek of things that will be coming to the game in the future.

We were told that a new zoo feature will be coming to the game, and that it will apparently include "lions, tigers, bears, elephants, and more." It's unclear right now as to whether or not this Zoo will be just a community building, or if it will be a business, or even some grander feature that will require us to interact with it regularly. As an Aquarium has already been released in the game, the Zoo is likely to take up place right next to that as a community building, but we'll make sure to keep an eye on its release either way.

Finally, we were given a confirmation that a change would be coming to "storage" in the game, and that in the future, we'll gain the ability to store actual building types, rather than just decorations.

While this first edition of the CityVille podcast might have been light on coming attractions, you can check it out in its entirety (including an interview with one of the designers of the game) at the top of this post.

Are you excited to build a zoo in your city? Let us know in the comments.
