Obsidian Entertainment’s survival game Grounded has received a new trailer in the Microsoft and Bethesda storefront, confirming that it is finally leaving Early Access and entering its full release in September 2022.
The game, which initially launched in early access in 2020, has come a long way to reach full release, but it looks like the community’s patience is about to pay off.
In a new Grounded trailer, more details on what to expect at full release have been outlined. Now the ‘complete garden’ is here with features like base defense, wild biomes, crafting, huge bosses and enhanced armor being shouted out.
Additionally, it was mentioned that “the full story” is also coming with the release. It is also stated in the trailer that there are 10 million players, so the population must be healthy for the Xbox Game Pass game.
Grounded has you playing as teenagers huddled in your backyard, facing all sorts of bugs and huge creatures as you fight for survival. Think Honey, I Shrunk the Kids meets Ark: Survival Evolved and you’re in the right ballpark.
There hasn’t been a specific date announced in the past “September”, but that’s not a long time to wait for players. It looks like this will bring in a lot of content that isn’t in the game yet, so mark your calendars… if not a little more generally.
