The Xbox Game Preview scheme has gotten a slimy new addition today, in the form of Slime Rancher. That lifelong dream of wrangling slimy creatures can now be realised on Xbox One!
Each day presents a new challenge in the role of plucky young rancher, Beatrix LeBeau, who’s trying to earn a living light years away from Earth. You can suck things up using a vacuum and shoot them out too, two key actions that’ll be useful for looking after an eco-system of slimes, all of whom have their own wants and needs. It’ll even allow the player to squeeze in a bit of science by combining slimes and creating new species.
Slime Rancher is available via Game Preview for £15.99, but for those debating an early purchase, there’s also a free trial on offer.
Slime Rancher is the tale of Beatrix LeBeau, a plucky, young rancher who sets out for a life a thousand light years away from Earth on the ‘Far, Far Range’ where she tries her hand at making a living wrangling slimes. With a can-do attitude, plenty of grit, and her trusty vacpack, Beatrix attempts to stake a claim, amass a fortune, and avoid the continual peril that looms from the rolling, jiggling avalanche of slimes around every corner!
