VR Playground, also known as Slime Rancher: VR Playground, is a free, standalone DLC for Slime Rancher jointly developed by Monomi Park and 3lb Games which was released on November 14th 2018 on PC. The content requires the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift to play.[1]

When installed, the game must be launched in Oculus VR mode or Steam VR mode from the Steam Library.

Introduction

VR Playground uses maps unique to the VR experience, and behaves much like a sandbox. Each map is based on a specific zone of the main game, and will spawn resources and slimes unique to that zone, if applicable. Each map is closed in with invisible walls.

The player has no Health bar and as such are impervious to slimes which are normally harmful. The Plort Market is completely absent, so plorts can only be used to intentionally cause Largo Slime transformations, and despawn much more quickly in this mode. Largos do not eat plorts, so will not cause Tarr to appear. The player cannot jump or utilise the jetpack, and the Vacpack slots hold 20 units with no Water Tank upgrade. Beatrix's free hand and vacpack are controlled directly by the VR controllers.

Areas
