The following is a broad roadmap of what we expect to develop over the next few 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 and does not include everything in development for Slime Rancher. Additionally, the updates listed below may be released in multiple stages.
A new zone will be added that bridges the Indigo Quarry and Moss Blanket. The mysterious Ruins will play an important part in ultimately reaching the Glass Desert.
A resident of the Ruins, the quantum slime has a complicated relationship with our current reality. Corralling them is definitely a challenge for any rancher.
A new resource will be added that the quantum slime favors. Acquiring them will require pulling them in from a different reality!
A new feature will allow Beatrix to slowly pay off her ranch, receiving special rewards along the way.
Letters From Home
We’ll learn a bit more about Beatrix, and what she left behind.
A new ranch expansion with additional empty ranch plots will be added.
The Glass Desert
The Glass Desert acts as Slime Rancher's 'end game' zone and features more explorable space and additional challenges not found in previous zones.
Meteor Slime, Mosaic Slime, and ??? Slime
The desert contains a new 'trinity' of slimes, featuring a fruit, veggie and meat eater.
These new slimes have to eat, after all.
We'll finally be making some art that will finally let you put a face to the name. Hint: she's NOT secretly a corgi.
