Team Celebrates 1st Anniversary of the Game this August and Shares Details of New Slimetastic Content Coming Soon
Along with their retail distributor, Skybound Games, Monomi Park is excited to announce that a physical boxed edition of Slime Rancher is coming to stores worldwide this September! The award-winning game has already captured the hearts of millions of players on PC and Xbox Live and will soon be available in a special boxed edition for PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One® on September 4th in North America and September 7th in Europe and other territories. Fans in all territories can pre-order the retail edition of Slime Rancher starting tomorrow, August 9th, on the Skybound Store (https://store.skybound.com/). Additionally, the game will be released for digital download on PlayStation Network (PSN) on August 21st.
In Slime Rancher, players take on the role of Beatrix LeBeau: a plucky, young rancher who sets out for a life a thousand light years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range.’ Each day presents new challenges and risky opportunities as players attempt to amass great fortune in the business of slime ranching. Collect colorful slimes, grow crops, harvest resources, and explore the untamed wilds through the mastery of your all-purpose vacpack!
This September, every retail edition box of Slime Rancher comes packed with slimetastic goodies including:
- A Slimepedia Booklet (your beginner’s guide to Slime Rancher).
- Free digital download of the game’s Original Soundtrack.
- Discount voucher for Slime Rancher merchandise.
Additionally, PS4™ and Xbox One players will receive new, console-exclusive downloadable content (DLC)! With new DLC Playsets, players can dress up their slimes as heroic adventurers and watch them fight off a hoard of toy bop goblins (PS4) or as sea-faring pirates hunting for treasure (Xbox One). Each platform will also receive an additional special Sapphire (PS4) or Emerald (Xbox One) Chroma Pack, which can be used to give a player’s ranch house, vacpack, and ranch tech a shiny, new paint job!
Monomi Park originally launched version 1.0 of Slime Rancher on the Steam and Xbox One platforms in August of 2017. This August, Monomi Park is celebrating a successful year of ranching with community contests and giveaways for players.
