Slime Rancher is getting its first paid DLC pack. The Secret Style Pack is the first piece of paid DLC for the game since its 2016 Early Access launch.
"Secret Styles" are a brand new type of 7Zee tech which will allow players to give their slimes fresh new looks. Once you've discovered this tech, you can use it to re-style any slime of a particular type whenever you choose. You can toggle between each style in the ranch house at any time and for any slime. The Secret Style Pack will allow you to mix and match original slime styles with new, exciting designs to create hundreds of potential combinations. This Slime Rancher DLC will launch on June 18th for PC, with console versions to follow "shortly thereafter" according to developer Monomi Park.
Slime Rancher is a sandbox life sim revolving around the titular slimes. Players control Beatrix LeBeau, a young adventurer who journeys to a new planet teeming with slimes. Beatrix must make her living wrangling slimes, selling their produce, and improving her slime farm. The game originally launched via Early Access back in 2016, with a full launch following in August 2017. Since Slime Rancher's release it has received over a dozen free updates. These include new slimes, new zones, extra gadgets, and one-of-a-kind holiday events. We're not yet sure if Monomi Park plans to create more paid DLC for the game. If the Secret Style Pack does well, we might see more substantial stuff on which to drop real-life Newbucks.
You can grab the Secret Style Pack for Slime Rancher on June 18th if you're a PC player. Console players will need to wait a little longer. We don't have a concrete console release date for the Slime Rancher DLC yet, so watch this space.
