Banbury, Oxfordshire – 15th July 2021
Today marks the release of Ranch Simulator’s biggest content update yet. The update completely revamps the building system so that players can now build facilities freely including foundations, walls, doors, stairs, roofs, coops, fences, feeders and more.
We’ve introduced a new map which is more optimised, delivering a smoother experience for some players along with some visual upgrades. Additionally, female pigs have been added – meaning that players can now breed piglets.
A hardware store has been introduced too. This is the place to visit in order to purchase your tools and building materials, such as wood planks, concrete, metal rebars, lawnmowers, trailers, paint and much more.
To celebrate the updated release, we’re also offering a 20% discount on Steam.
Ranch Simulator launched in Early Access on PC in March and, as of time of writing, sits at a 86% positive recent review score. The game’s RRP is $24.99/£19.99/€20.99.
Builder. Farmer. Hunter. Trader. Ranching certainly isn’t your average job. Think you have the skills to turn your family’s rundown homestead into the most prosperous ranch in the valley? Then it’s time to head out into the wilderness in this captivating single and multiplayer open-world simulator.
Take a look at the multiplayer gameplay trailer. The game supports English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese Brazilian, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Turkish, Polish and Korean.
About Ranch Simulator
It was once your grandfather’s pride-and-joy, but your family ranch has fallen on hard times and it’s up to you to turn things around. Sitting in a forested valley far from civilisation, the dilapidated homestead will test all your abilities as you attempt to turn it into the most prosperous ranch in the region – either alone or in up to four player co-op multiplayer.
Rebuild Your Ranch
The years have not been kind to your family ranch and it will take time and money to restore it to its former glory. Buy tools from the local hardware store and purchase a range of vehicles from the garage to help with your rebuilding projects. Renovate the main house, decide what livestock you want to farm and construct the barns, pens and runs you’ll need to keep them safe and secure.
Look After Your Livestock
Grand building projects are one thing. Paying for them? That’ll come down to your ranching skills. Overseeing a profitable operation is all about the day-to-day. Once you’ve selected and taken on your livestock, regular feeding and watering will keep them healthy. Successful breeding and careful rearing of the young will help boost the numbers in your herds and flocks — and the more produce you have to sell, the more income you’ll receive for all that hard work.
Head Out on the Hunt
There’s a large open-world environment outside your cosy homestead and it’s teeming with wildlife. So when you feel like slowing the pace, why not grab your trusty rifle and head out into the forest to stalk deer and hunt bears? But remember, the wilderness lives by its own laws and you aren’t the only skilled hunter in the neighbourhood. Sometimes your steady hand and sharp eyes will also be needed back on the ranch to stop hungry wolves turning your off-grid dream into a nightmare.
