The launch of Slime Rancher 2 is one of the most anticipated Game Pass releases of 2022. Being a direct follow-up of the fan-favorite original, there is enough reason to be excited. Naturally, fans have been wondering about the Slime Rancher 2 release date. If you are one of them, you have come to the right place. This guide will tell you when the release of Slime Rancher 2 is happening.
What is the release date?
The release date for Slime Rancher 2 is September 22, 2022. This information has been available since August, when Monomi Park, the game developer made it known. That said, you can grab the game on Steam well ahead of its release. Monomi Park also implied the game will receive multiple updates during that time, expanding upon the available content while adding more features, story content, and items. While these updates will come consistently, the developer has not set a schedule.
What to expect from Slime Rancher 2
When it was initially released, Slim Rancher was nominated for “Debut Game” in 2017 and has never failed to deliver. The next iteration of the game promises to go further. But the basic plot is expected to remain the same even as the game evolves. As a player, you will take on the role of the rancher, Beatrix LeBeau, who is tasked with looking after several types of slimes. In the original game, getting these slimes meant transversing across a deserted island and finding ways of getting them back to your ranch.
Slime Rancher 2 has the same gameplay except that you will have to travel to a new location called Rainbow Island, which is full of new wonderful and weird-looking slimes. These new exotics will give you more materials to sell to build a fortune.
Slime Rancher 2 will be available on Xbox Series X|S and PC.
