Some interesting games are coming to Steam this week, but one title stands out in the lead: Slime Rancher 2. Developed by studio Monomi Park, the game has an approval rating of 96 percent and was released shortly after the launch of 21,524 simultaneous players gambled. The sales figures are so good that Slime Rancher 2 is a newcomer in the top 100 of the Steam charts second place behind Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. The title is initially in Early Access and costs 24.99 euros.

This is how Slime Rancher 2 plays

Slime Rancher 2 connects directly to the popular predecessor. Once again, players step into the shoes of protagonist Beatrix LeBeau as she journeys across the Slime Sea to Rainbow Island. Here you have to set up a base and then hunt for the eponymous slimes. First, the monsters must be defeated so that she can take Beatrix to her lair and breed them. This happens in a specially built greenhouse, which offers the ideal conditions for the growth of the slimes.

Of course, there are a number of new slime monsters waiting for the heroine in the sequel – including the hopping cotton slime or the aquatic angler slime. In addition to breeding, which can bring in a lot of money, there are a number of other activities waiting on Rainbow Island. Ancient technologies want to be explored and dark mysteries need to be solved. In addition, there are a number of resources scattered across the area that Beatrix can use to upgrade her equipment and the greenhouse.
