Slime Rancher 2 Will Make Its Way Over To PC In September
Slime Rancher 2 by Monomi Park will wriggle its way onto PC in early access in September and will be available on Steam, Epic Games Store and Game Pass.
The game is a direct sequel to the original, continuing the slime-wrangling adventures of Beatrix LeBeau, and featuring a similar mixture of exploration, building, farming, and of course, collecting sparkling slime poo to sell for cash.
Slime Rancher 2 will move away from the first game’s setting of the Far Far Range, to a new location named Rainbow Island. It’s also significantly prettier than the original, which was pleasant enough visually but had fairly basic environments.
Naturally, Rainbow Island will host a wide variety of new slimes to collect, such as the rabbit-like cotton slime, or the somewhat sinister-looking angler slime. As with the first game, these slimes can be cross-bred to create new types of slimes.
According to the Steam page, the game’s early access version will launch with “a big world to explore, many different slimes to collect and combine, and an introduction to the game story and the mystery behind Rainbow Island.” Monomi Park also anticipates the game will remain in early access for “at least 18 months”, specifying that “we have a lot of content planned for version 1.0 and are a no-crunch studio, so we will give the development the time it needs”.
Slime Rancher 2 launches in early access on 22 September, on Steam, Epic Games Store and if you’ve got a Game Pass subscription, it’s also available on Day 1 on Microsoft’s subscription service.
