PARIS, FRANCE – July 5, 2022 – Raise animals, grow crops, craft machines, build the house of your dreams and explore an enormous open world in The Ranchers, a brand-new, highly-anticipated 1-4 player country-life sim, launching on PC via Steam in late 2023.
The Ranchers invites players to start a new life in a village filled with opportunity, and has already received over 225,000 wishlists on Steam. Create your own ranch, lay down your roots and develop your skills on an adventure of a lifetime, building your empire and forging new relationships, finding love and starting a family.
Farm with friends and develop your ranch together in up to 4-player online co-op, and sell resources to other players via the online market to maximise your profits. Explore 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, go hunting, fishing and hot air ballooning, play sports, hone your culinary skills, or have fun at the village festivals. There’s something for everyone in The Ranchers.
Today also sees the launch of the game’s Kickstarter campaign, which invites 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 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!” said Ethan Amyne, CEO of RedPilz Studio. “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.”
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.
