Beatrix LeBeau’s adventure continues in Slime Rancher 2! Her journey takes her to the prismatic Rainbow Island, full of mystery, adventure, and of course lots of new slimes to discover. Slime Rancher 2 has officially entered early access, and you can play the game on both Xbox and PC. Today, we’ll be answering the question: Does Slime Rancher 2 have crossplay?
Slime Rancher 2 Crossplay Compatibility Explained
Similar to the first game, Slime Rancher 2 launched into early access on both PC and Xbox platforms at the same time. The game is available now on Steam, Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store, and Xbox Series X/S.
To answer the question, Slime Rancher 2 does have crossplay in a way, but it’s more accurate to say it has cross saves. Slime Rancher 2 is strictly a single player game, so you won’t be able to play with anyone on different platforms.
If you purchase the game on Xbox Series X/S, you can continue your same save file if you also purchase the game off the Microsoft Store or Xbox app on your PC. Just make sure to use the same Microsoft account that owns the Xbox version, and you’re good to go.
Please note that this only works with the Microsoft Store version! For example, if you purchased the Steam or Epic Games version of Slime Rancher 2, you would NOT be able to play the same save file that’s on your Xbox Series X/S. All non-Microsoft Store versions of the game do not use your Microsoft account.
So, to recap, Slime Rancher 2 features cross saves between the Microsoft Store PC and Xbox Series X/S versions ONLY.
