Community Update

Hey ranchers! We’ve got some development updates to share with you :slimeamazed:

As you know, the next big Slime Rancher update will take you to the underwater lab of Viktor Humphries! We have jam-packed this update with some incredible new stuff and are aiming to release it this summer. Here's a in-development preview of what’s coming next for Slime Rancher!

v1.4.0 - Viktor's Experimental Update

Viktor's Slime-ulations
Join Viktor Humphries and test his simulated reality of the Far, Far Range. Well, a work-in-progress version anyway. You see, his work is hitting a wall because of the numerous bugs in the code as well as an unusual phenomenon: glitches that take the form of... slimes?

Glitch Slimes
Glitch slimes have been discovered living inside Viktor's Slimeulations and it's up to you to help him capture, quarantine, and research them before they spread! But it won’t be easy! Glitch slimes can be difficult to find as they are often hiding in plain sight, pretending to be regular slimes or real objects that were definitely there before... nothing to see here just a regular tree in its regular spot and not out of place.

Use Viktor's patented debug spray to reveal hidden glitch slimes and vac them up before they disappear! Be extra careful while exploring: taking damage could give those tricky glitch slimes a chance to wiggle out of your tank!

The Slimeulation is still full of bugs and will begin to degrade over time. Collect as many glitch slimes as you can before the corruption starts to spread. When the exit portal opens, make a break for it before things get out of control and escape the simulation safely!

Glitch slimes will turn into bug reports after you leave the Slimeulation. Turn in your collection of bug reports for some cutting-edge ranch tech designed by Viktor himself.

New Gadgets
It wouldn't be a very science-y update without new slime science gadgets! Viktor's update will include a smattering of fun and useful (and questionably useful) gadgets. Here are just a few of the gadgets Viktor has been working on:

Advanced Drones
These new-and-improved drones can handle not one, but TWO programs! Talk about advanced! Set a primary AND a secondary task to keep these busy bees busy while you’re busy being breezy.

Portable Water Tap
Water taps are a small, placeable water source that can be used to refill your tank if there aren’t ponds nearby.

Chicken Cloner
This is an experimental gadget constructed by one of Viktor’s scientific peers and, when it works, it creates a perfect clone of any chicken. When it doesn’t, well, that’s a data point at least!

The Decorizer
We’re adding a brand new storage device that will be unlocked via the 7Zee Rewards Club as a mid-tier reward. It allows you to store, clean up, and manage decorative ranch items (ornaments, echoes, etc.) with the press of a button!

Viktor's Experimental Update is shaping up to be a pretty big update and there's even more packed into it that we will be revealing soon! :slimehappy:

New Cosmetic DLC

We’re developing some paid cosmetic DLC that will allow you to reskin every slime into an awesome, exotic form! Current designs include angelic phosphor slimes, tiger tabbies, and lilly pad puddle slimes. It even applies to largo forms!

We decided to do this DLC after reaching out to the community and discovering many of you would be interested in supporting us beyond the base game. This DLC is totally optional, and purely cosmetic, so if it’s not a fit for you, we’ll still have plenty of other surprises down the road.

That's it for now! Until next time, stay wiggly!
