Slime Rancher 2 gets major updates
Monday, October 16, 2023
The second major update to Slime Rancher 2 called "Come Rain or Slime" is coming this Fall for Xbox Series X/S and Windows PC. It will deliver an array of new weather elements, the return of Tangle and Dervish Slimes, Weather Symphony, new mysteries within Rainbow Island and more.
Slime Rancher is a life simulation adventure video game developed and published by Monomi Park. First released in 2017, the game is available for multiple platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
In Slime Rancher, players take on the role of Beatrix LeBeau, a rancher who travels to a distant planet known as the "Far, Far Range" to live the life of a "slime rancher." The main objective of the game is to capture, breed, and take care of various colorful slimes, each with its own unique properties and behaviors. These slimes produce "plorts" when fed, and players can sell these plorts in the market to earn money. This money can be used to upgrade the ranch, purchase new equipment, and expand the player's operations.
The gameplay consists of exploring the open-world environment, capturing wild slimes, managing resources, expanding the ranch, and discovering the secrets of the Far, Far Range. While the game has a laid-back and charming vibe, it also offers challenges in terms of managing different slime types and ensuring their well-being.
Monomi Park has revealed the forthcoming major content update for Slime Rancher 2: Come Rain or Slime. This anticipated update will deliver an array of new weather elements that will captivate both the existing community and newcomers alike. Prepare to immerse in Rainbow Island where the forces of nature reign supreme and where beloved slimes make their triumphant return. This next update is set to make its grand debut this Fall 2023.
