Steam Wishlists rocket past 225,000 as new Kickstarter campaign launches today, with exclusive Kickstarter alpha coming this October
Build the farm of your dreams and grow crops, raise animals, and craft machines in The Ranchers, a brand-new, highly anticipated 1-4 player country-life/farming sim, set to launch on PC via Steam in late 2023.
The Ranchers invites players to start a new life in a village filled with many opportunities and the freedom to do whatever it is you want. Create your own ranch, lay down your roots and develop your skills on the adventure of a lifetime, building your empire and forging new relationships, finding love and starting a family.
Farm with your friends, build and develop your ranch together in up to 4-player online co-op, and sell your hard earned resources to other players via the online market to maximise your profits. Explore around the village on foot or acquire new vehicles, like scooters, cars, trucks and yachts, and discover a gigantic open world filled with mines, shipwrecks, uncharted islands, and monsters.
Meet the local community and get to know their personalities and quirks, go hunting, fishing and hot air ballooning, play sports, hone your culinary skills, or simply kick back and have fun at the village festivals. There’s lots to do for all players!
Today also sees the launch of the game’s Kickstarter campaign, with which the developers want to invite fans to back the project in a variety of ways and choose from a number of rewards, ranging from exclusive in-game content, the opportunity to design an in-game pet, and at the higher tiers, even become an in-game NPC.
A playable alpha test scheduled for this October will also be available exclusively to Kickstarter “Alpha Rancher Pack” backers and above, giving them an exciting early look ahead of the game’s launch. For the full list of tiers and options available to crowdfund, visit Kickstarter.
“The Ranchers has been underway since 2016 and I’m beyond excited to finally be able to share it with our amazing community! The launch of today’s Kickstarter is a huge moment for both us and the game, and we are delighted to invite The Ranchers’ most devoted fans to join us on this journey with a range of special perks and bonuses just for them.”
Ethan Amyne, CEO of RedPilz Studio.
The Ranchers is available to add to your Steam Wishlist now and is scheduled to launch on PC in late 2023, with console and mobile versions to follow. We’ll be keeping our eye on this one!
