The latest entry in the Slime Rancher series was announced today as part of Xbox and Bethesda's E3 2021 Showcase, described as a "wiggly new adventure" heading to Xbox Series X and Series S on Xbox Game Pass in 2022.

Slime Rancher 2 features an open-world experience across a "gorgeous, rainbow-hued island that invites players to explore at their own pace," filled with mysterious, ancient technology, wiggly, new slimes, and slime science resources to collect.

"The technical enhancements of Slime Rancher 2 make great use of 9th generation hardware, pushing to the limit the rich shaders, dynamic lighting, and the spectacularly unpredictable physics interactions between slimes, all in glorious 4K.

But all these fancy new toys really just enhance the already delightfully frenzied and totally unique gameplay that made the original Slime Rancher so endearing in the first place."
