While Slime Rancher 2’s store recommends having 8 GB of storage for the game, it starts at only around 1 GB. This stat may sound surprising, mainly because the original Slime Rancher also requires a little over 1 GB, but it’s good to note that the system requirements for the second game are much higher.

With Slime Rancher released back in 2016, Monomi Park has officially stated that the system requirements for the second game will directly impact its system requirements. Furthermore, while the Early Access version may require less storage space, it’ll certainly increase as the game receives more updates. In other words, you’ll need the space once Slime Rancher 2 officially launches out of Early Access as a completed game.
