Believe it or not, but Grounded has been in the public eye for nearly three years. Following Obsidian Entertainment being acquired by Microsoft, the team at X019 revealed Grounded. With the same formulaic gameplay elements that the developer is known for built with a child’s imagination has show to be popular among many players.
Earlier this year, Obsidian Entertainment shared that Grounded already welcomed more than 10 million players. Atop of that, the full release is slated to ship sometime later down the road for 2022. Additionally, the game received one of its largest updates yet: The Bugs Strike Back. And with the Xbox + Bethesda Showcase this week, it is anticipated that Obsidian Entertainment will be making an announcement for sure.
During the presentation on Sunday, Grounded has been confirmed to ship its full release later this September. You can watch the new trailer in the video below:
“The full release will include all 12 updates already released during Game Preview/Early Access development, but now players will be able to unravel the entire mysterious story behind Grounded and their shrunken-ness. Find out how the teens got into the yard and the mad scientist behind it in the fully playable campaign — all of which can be experienced alone or with a group of friends,” Obsidian Entertainment Studio Head Feargus Urquhart explains.
“The full release, Version 1.0, will also open an entirely new part of the Grounded world — the upper yard. This new section includes a ton more of the backyard to explore along with new armor recipes, new weapon recipes, and some secrets that we just can’t bring ourselves to spoil for you all. Nah, we will spoil something! The Mantis, an insect consistently requested by our incredible community. Finding its way into the yard as a new boss, it may be players’ undoing.”
That is not the only announcement that Obsidian Entertainment made at the showcase. In that, the developer also revealed Pentiment. This 16th century detective narrative is scheduled to release later this November. You can read the full report by heading here.
