Update: Monomi Park confirmed to UploadVR that the DLC is due for release on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
The wacky world of Monomi Park’s Slime Rancher is coming to VR.
The developer this week announced a collaboration with 3lb Games to release a free DLC update for the game later this fall adding in headset support. For those that don’t know, the Slime Rancher series is a little like a Harvest Moon game or Stardew Valley, except that instead of growing plants you’re collecting hundreds of a colorful little blobs known as slimes and instead of being on Earth you’re actually exploring an alien planet light years away. Okay, so it’s a little different.
The VR add-on will introduce some of the game’s most popular locations (Dry Reef, Moss Blanket and Ancient Ruins) to headsets and allow you to interact with pink, tabby, and phosphor slimes. It doesn’t look like it’ll offer the full games’ breadth of content but you will be able to play with your adorable little friends like never before.
We don’t know exactly which headsets will support the DLC right now, though we’ve reached out to Monomi Park to ask.
