The overwhelmingly well received rancher of slimes is officially getting a sequel, and now we have an actual release date for when we can get our grubby little hands on it. Not just that, but the developers have also revealed the official PC system requirements, which has taken a significant upgrade over the previous game...

Slime Rancher 2 is officially launching in Early Access on September 22nd. If you were a fan of the original title, then you might want to make sure your PC is up to scratch since the specs have increased quite a bit. However, the requirements can change down the line due to updates and optimization over its Early Access period.

With that said let's jump in and take a look at the official Slimer Rancher 2 PC system requirements...

Slime Rancher 2 Minimum system requirements

Slime Rancher 2 Recommended system requirements

Your PC will need a graphics card that is at least as powerful as an RTX 2070 or RX 5700, paired with either a Core i5-8400 or Ryzen 5 1500X processor in order to match the Slime Rancher 2 recommended system requirements. This setup will likely then achieve 60fps performance on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution. 16GB of RAM is also recommended.

Slime Rancher 2 needs a GPU that is at least as powerful as a GTX 960 or R9 280 coupled with a Core i5-2500K or FX-6300 CPU in order to match the minimum system requirements. This will then likely achieve 30fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p resolution. You will also need at least 8GB of system memory.

Overall, looking at the specs above we recommend at least a 3 year old PC in order to play Slime Rancher 2 at its best.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Slime Rancher 2 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Slime Rancher 2 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Slime Rancher 2 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

2070? Good lord. I know the 20 series is nearly two generations old, but I didn't see Slime Rancher as a possibly graphically demanding series. Regards from Laredo Drywall Contractors

This is a great game genre, but you should use a PC that is at least 3 years old to be able to play Slime Rancher 2 at its best. I recommend the game lol beans, simple, and roots play a lot more with you!

Good lord, a 2070? I know 20 series is nearing 2 gens old at this point, but man, I didn't particularly take Slime Rancher as a potentially graphically demanding series.
