At the time of writing, it is not clear when Slime Rancher 2 will launch or release, and so all we have is a general release date set for 2022. Slime Rancher 2 will also launch on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC on Steam. and the Epic Games Store.
That said, based on the announcement trailer we got yesterday, much of the same gameplay mechanics players of the first game enjoyed will be featured in the game. There also appears to be a plethora of new slimes, and players will get to capture and interact with. However, if you are unsure what Slime Rancher 2 is or the first game, here's a brief rundown.
Slime Rancher 2 is the brand new sequel to 2017's Slime Rancher and plans to bring a host of new content. The new game will continue the story of Beatrix LeBeau as she journeys to Rainbow Island, a new location that will contain tons of new slimes, technology, and more.
On this new island, players will build a conservatory and build a whole host of new gadgets and gather slimes just like they did in the previous game, but on a larger scale. Slime Rancher 2 will also play much the same way as the first one, and the player will need to gather a ton of slimes to make money, expand their base and explore new areas.
