Slime Rancher is back and ready to send players out into the world to look for and suck up some slime for ranching. Slime Rancher 2 promises to bring a whole gaggle of new slimes to suck up and send to your ranch.
After the success of the first Slime Rancher, fans were enthralled with the game's tight loop of exploration and catching slime within the game's conservatory. Slime Rancher focuses on sending players out into the game world to to catch various colors and types of slimes to then bring back to their farm to care for.
Slime Rancher 2 promises to build on everything that made the first game great now in the new Rainbow Island biome and with new slimes like the tanuki slime along with returning classics.
