Slime Rancher 2 - Song of the Sabers - Patch 0.2.0 Notes
The first major content update for Slime Rancher 2 has arrived! Discover Powderfall Bluffs, a mysterious, glacial island off the coast of Ember Valley. As if it were a giant, icy time capsule, you’ll find a thriving community of prehistoric Saber Slimes and Thundercluck chickens within, as well as strange, auroral anomalies, a treasure trove of new resources, and more!
Song of the Sabers Features Overview
Explore a New Biome: Powderfall Bluffs is a prehistoric frozen island that has mysteriously emerged from the Slime Sea. It’s an icy biome unlike anything ever seen in Slime Rancher, but you’ll need to find it first before enjoying this winter wonderland. Here’s a hint: the entrance to it is located somewhere in Ember Valley…
Wrangle New Slimes: This snowy sanctuary is home to Saber Slimes—a ferocious blast from the past! And this update also includes a new, RARE slime, but we don’t want to make it overly easy for you to find it so that’s all the info you’re getting from us…
Source New Food: Prehistoric Thundercluck chickens roam among the snowdrifts. They’re scary looking! But they just look like dinner to a Saber Slime.
Gather New Resources: Powderfall Bluffs offers many new precious resources from its frigid peaks including impossibly Perfect Snowflakes, rare Sun Sap, and adorable Slime Fossils.
Build New Gadgets: Start an icy dust-up anywhere with the Snowball Machine or put other handy gadgets to use like the Hydro Shower, Location Markers, and new Warp Tech.
Craft Wintery Deco: Craft a giant snowflake just because you can, or a snow globe that plays music to really set the mood, as well as golden slime and chicken statues and earn the admiration (or at least curiosity) of your fellow ranchers.
Walk Upon Auroral Anomalies: Phantom-like flora gleam throughout the landscape and nightfall illuminates bridges that allow you to reach new heights along the icy mountains—but act fast before they vanish with the dawn.
Snowball Fights: Slimes love to play in the snow and won’t hesitate to engage in a snowball fight with you and other slimes!

Beyond the Frozen Horizon
Song of the Sabers is our first major content update for Slime Rancher 2 and aims to deliver more of what you know and love about Slime Rancher, with a few surprises along the way.
Following this update, Monomi Park will be developing new features that build upon the core activities and game systems of Slime Rancher, allowing you to experience Rainbow Island in new ways. We’re excited about this set of features that we think will wiggle, jiggle, and shake up the Slime Rancher formula.
Further out, Beatrix’s adventure will finally take her into the massive and mysterious Grey Labyrinth that blocks her progress across the furthest reaches of the island. And though its purpose and history remain unknown, it's clear that the key to unlocking the secrets of Rainbow Island lies beyond its walls.
For information on what to expect during Slime Rancher 2’s Early Access development, check out our Official FAQ.
