Update Preview - Drones!



The Automatic Update is coming in early July and will introduce a new Slime Science gadget that will make ranch maintenance a breeze - drones! Drones are happy little helper bots that can be programmed to help with various tasks around the ranch.

This new feature is still in-development, but we couldn’t wait to share what we’ve been working on!




Drones and drone stations were inspired by bees; drones buzz around the ranch to complete their task and like to recharge in their flower-shaped stations once their job is complete.

When a drone returns to its station it will go to sleep until it is time to get back to work.

Wake up, little drone!



There are many different types of tasks you can program a drone to do, so it will be up to you to figure out how they can help!





Drones will be buzzing over to Slime Rancher this July!

DirectX 9 Support

As you may have heard, Valve recently announced that they will be dropping support for Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems. That means that in order for you to continue running games (like Slime Rancher) on Steam you will need to update to a more recent version of Windows.

We are also updating our game engine and, later this year, we will no longer be able to support DirectX 9. We are still developing new content for Slime Rancher and continued support of the DirectX 9 is no longer feasible for us to maintain.

If you currently use DirectX 9 and are unable to upgrade you will be able to keep playing using an offline, older version of the game. Keep in mind that game updates after 1.3.0 will no longer be supported.

The good news is, an overwhelming majority of ranchers don’t use DirectX 9 (less than half a percent of Steam users still use DX9). Check which version of DirectX you use and see if you are eligible to upgrade by following the instructions here.

Read more about Steam’s Windows XP and Windows Vista Support here.

We will post updates to this thread as we get more information on Steam’s XP/Vista support drop and a date on when we will no longer be able to support DirectX 9.

Thank you

“I’ve never played a cuter, more pure game in my entire life, so I have no qualms awarding Slime Rancher a well deserved perfect score.”
10 – CGM

“Slime Rancher has the ability to keep you hooked for hours; I often looked out over my ranch, felt pride at my accomplishments, and eagerly ventured back into the wilderness to see what other strange things I could find.”
8.5 – Game Informer

“Slime Rancher is a delightful, irrepressible thing with a manageable space to venture out into. A bouncy rainbow in a sludge of sprawling, mud-coloured shooters. I am so glad it exists.”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun
