Slime Rancher Development Roadmap

Postby Nick » Wed Jan 13, 2016 3:16 pm

The following is a broad roadmap of what we expect to develop for future content updates. In between these updates there will likely be minor updates, bugfixes and other tweaks.

Please note that the development roadmap is subject to change (especially content scheduled further out!) and does not include everything in development for Slime Rancher. Additionally, the updates listed below may be released in multiple stages.

v1.0.1 - The Navigation Update

Map of the Far, Far Range
The Navigation update introduces a a much requested feature: a world map! This map will show your location in the world as well as locations of any teleporters and extractors you've placed.

Desert Slime Toys
The charcoal brick, disco ball, sol mate, and gyro top will be added, much to your desert slime's delight.

Gilded Ginger
Gilded ginger can very rarely be found growing in the Glass Desert. It can be used to gain additional gold plorts from a gold slime in the wild or used on [REDACTED]

v1.1.0 - Ogden's Wild Update
The Wilds
Take a side job working for Ogden Ortiz and explore the Wilds, an untamed island on the Far, Far Range full of primitive, feral slimes! Ogden will offer you unique rewards for collecting the rare kookadoba fruit that grows in the Wilds.

Saber Slimes
Though the original saber slimes are long-extinct, their lineage lives on in the feral largos that inhabit the Wilds. But watch out! These primal slimes would like nothing more than to make you their lunch!

Casual Mode
Based on popular request, Casual Mode is a relaxed version of Adventure Mode where tarr do not exist!

v1.2.0 - Mochi's Megabucks Update
Nimble Valley
Partner with Mochi Miles in a STRICTLY BUSINESS capacity to corner the market on quicksilver slime plorts! Explore the Nimble Valley, a wholly-owned property of Miles Corp and earn unique rewards from your boss, THE Mochi Miles.

Quicksilver Slimes
Why doesn't the rest of the world know about quicksilver slimes? Why are they ONLY located in the Miles-owned Nimble Valley? I'm sure it's just a coincidence.

Adorable drones will be added to Slime Science, allowing you to selectively automate parts of the ranching experience! Manual ranching will still be required, but drones will reduce your workload and leave you with more time to explore!

5-Day Rush 2.0
The 5-Day Rush will be revisited with new features that make it a faster, more exciting experience.

v1.3.0 - Viktor's Experimental Update
Viktor's Slime-ulations
Join Viktor Humphries in the pursuit of knowledge and test out his Slime-ulations: experiments aimed at acquiring valuable data in a virtual, hypothetical environment that's- well really it's very complicated science-y stuff that we'll explain once you start. Just know that you'll be rewarded for your efforts.

Iron Rancher Mode
An exciting new game mode that adds a replay-able, survival-like experience to Slime Rancher! Aimed at veteran ranchers who have cleared Adventure Mode and seek an increased challenge, the Iron Rancher Competition has you racing against the clock to collect quotas of various plorts across multi-day rounds. However, each round offers unique challenges and remixed rules that greatly changes the standard Slime Rancher experience. Vampiric chickens? Whaaaa?
