Called simply The Lab, this add-on features a total of 96 new miniature monsters to collect from Zombie Astronauts to Pod Creatures and more! You can see some pics from the add-on below, but that’s the tip of the tip of the iceberg in terms of all the cool new minuscule mutations they have to offer.
