Slime Rancher 2 Finally Has A Release Date For PS5

It's slime time!

Slime Rancher 2 is finally making its way to PS5 on June 11th, after it first launched back in 2022 for PC and Xbox Series X|S in Early Access.

Interestingly, while the easy assumption is that PS5 players have been waiting longer for Slime Rancher 2 due to Sony’s lack of support for “Early Access” releases on PlayStation, developer Monomi Park seemingly implies that this version of the game will still be an Early Access product. The description reads, “All purchases of the PlayStation 5 version include all previous and future content updates leading up to the game’s full release for no additional cost.”

Eager players who want to get in even sooner are also able to start playing the game on June 7th with a digital pre-order, making it an Early Early Access launch. The game is available to pre-order now on the PlayStation Store either as a standalone game for $44.95 or in a bundle with the original Slime Rancher for $67.95. You can find them both here.
