This page is a list of upcoming features for Slime Rancher direct from the development roadmap.

NOTE: This is not a list of features that weren't implemented, this is a list of upcoming features.


Quicksilver Slime

Nothing much is known about Quicksilver Slimes. They will live in the Nimble Valley owned by Mochi Miles. They will come with Mochi's Megabucks Update (1.2.0).

Their prototype was added into the game's files in 1.1.0. The Quicksilver Slime resembles a fire slime without the flames, and it moves around faster than other slimes. It also has no largos as of now.

Meteor Slime

The scrapped Meteor Slimes might still be added in a future update, but this is still uncertain.

Other Slimes

Currently None.

Slime Toys

Currently none. Though it is reasonable to believe that there will be toys for each of the new slimes.


Currently none. 

The World

Nimble Valley

Nimble Valley is an area wholly-owned by Mochi Miles. It's also where the Quicksilver Slimes will most likely live. (1.2.0)

More Zone Sections/Sub Areas

Current zones will get more sections added to them and there will be more sub-areas for you to explore in the future.

More Treasure Pods

More treasure pods are planned to be added in the future updates.

The Ranch

Currently none that are confirmed; although after the 1.1.0 update, it is reasonable to suspect something similar to the retreat to be added in other upcoming updates.


Currently none.

Slime Science


Adorable Drones will be added, allowing you to automate parts of your ranching experience. Manual ranching will be still required, but drones will reduce your workload and leave you more time to explore. They will be added in The Automatic Update (1.3.0)

Hydro Shower

This mysterious gadget might be added in a future version since it's referenced in the code. It was originally supposed to be unlocked a week after you got the Hydro Turret. It looks like a ball on a stick and it has to be triggered manually (with a cooldown of 60 seconds after that). Once it's triggered, the Hydro Shower will trigger a rain effect and kill Tarr in its radius, which is about the size of an expanded rad aura.

Game Modes

Iron Rancher Mode

This mode adds a replayable survival-like experience to the game. It has you race against time to collect quotas of various plorts across multi-day rounds. Each round will also include mixed rules and various challenges, including vampiric chickens, random plorts, random tarr spawns, increased hunger and more. This will be added with Viktor's Experimental Update (1.4.0).

Rush Mode

The 5-Day Rush is getting an overhaul, including a name change! Rush Mode shares the same goal as the 5DR in that it's a race to get as many newbucks as you can in a limited period of time. However, Rush Mode introduces a variable time limit, that can be extended through smart, efficient play. It will also feature a few bonus offerings out on the range to encourage mixing up ranching with exploring. This will be added with Mochi's Megabucks Update (1.2.0).


Rancher Missions

Viktor and Mochi will eventually offer you a daily mission as work-for-hire in new zones across the world. These missions will offer unique rewards as you earn favors for each rancher.

Mochi will ask you to herd the Quicksilver Slimes to corner the market with their plorts. (1.2.0)

Viktor will ask you to perform experiments in a virtual environment. (1.4.0)

It hasn't been yet confirmed whether BOb and Thora will receive a new zone.


As of version 1.1.0, Boom slime explosions and butt-stomps no longer displace Echoes. However, Monomi Park mentioned that this bug might be re-implemented in a more formal manner in a future update.

Weekly Rewards

Similar to the Wiggly Wonderland event, a rotating stock of weekly rewards will be offered to ranchers who know how to hunt down those hidden crates across the range.
