Developer Monomi Park, along with retail distributor Skybound Games has released the boxed edition of Slime Rancher, which has been a massive hit selling over one million copies across PC, Xbox One, Mac, and Linux, as well as being downloaded over 3.5 million times. That’s a pretty sweet achievement unlocked.
Now, I’m sure there are some people who haven’t heard of Slime Rancher, so just for you let me give you a brief summary. You play the character of Beatrix LeBeau: a brave, young rancher who travels a thousand light years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range’, but each day makes for a new challenge and treacherous events as you get into the business of slime ranching, where you gather colorful slimes, grow crops, harvest resources, and explore the world with your multifaceted vacpack.
So, back to the boxed edition and what exactly you get with it…
Slime Rancher boxed addition will include a slimepedia booklet, free digital download of the game’s original soundtrack and a discount voucher for Slime Rancher merchandise. PS4 and Xbox One players will receive new, console-exclusive DLC content and new DLC playsets where 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.
Slime Rancher is available on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One and PS4; at the moment, the physical version is only available via Skybound. Check out the updated trailer for Slime Rancher which can be viewed below, along with some pictures of what you can find included in the box edition.
