What is Slime Rancher 2 About?

For those of you not familiar with the franchise, Slime Rancher 2 is the sequel to Slime Rancher, a delightful game about managing a ranch full of sentient slimes. In both games (Slime Rancher and Slime Rancher 2), you get to play as Beatrix LeBeau, a quirky young rancher who wants to try her hand at ranching the adorable alien creatures known only as “slimes” on the Far, Far Range. You get to chase down slimes of all kinds on an alien planet full of squishy, adorable life!

Slime Rancher 2 will be very similar to its predecessor, in the sense that you’ll be chasing down alien slimes and building homes for them on your ranch. The sequel will offer a much larger variety of slimes, however, and even more territory for you to explore! Slime Rancher 2 will be like Slime Rancher in many ways, but the ways in which it will be different will blow your mind!
