Slime Rancher 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2017 Slime Rancher game from Monomi Park, which will be available in Early Access, and players will be returning to Rainbow Island sooner than they expect. There is no information if the whole game will launch on the PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, or when the whole game will be released.
Slime Rancher 2 Early Access release date
Slime Rancher 2 will be available for free this fall on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and Xbox Series X/S. While Monomi Park hasnt confirmed whether or not early access will be available on any PlayStation consoles or the Nintendo Switch, the original Slime Rancher game eventually found its way onto both platforms. Early Access is not the complete game; it serves as a testing run for the developers before a full launch.
Slime Rancher 2 continues Beatrix LeBeau's journey from the first game while she continues to explore the mysterious Rainbow Island. There are also a number of odd slimy little animals that Beatrix can tame and put in a ranch that will assist her in her adventures.
The first Slime Rancher game was praised for its colorful presentation and engaging game design. The first game proved to be popular with a younger audience, achieving a player base of over 15 million at one point. In an interview, Slime Rancher 2s game director Nick Popovich said the game will not have NFTs.
