Grounded Flight Available Now

Summary

  • Starting today and extending through June 22, Grounded flight will be available for accepted Xbox Insiders in the Xbox Insider Hub and Steam client as a part of the Steam Game Festival as a single-player demo.
  • Grounded will enter Xbox Game Preview with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Steam Early Access on July 28, 2020.

Starting today through June 22, global fans can experience an early demo of Grounded, Obsidian Entertainment’s upcoming survival adventure game, through the Xbox Insider Program and/or through Steam Game Festival. Those who registered to be an Xbox Insider can now check their Xbox Insider Hub to see if they have been accepted to participate in the Grounded flight on Xbox. Fans also have an opportunity to explore the vast, beautiful, and dangerous world of Grounded through the same single-player demo released on Xbox Insider, on Steam as part of the Steam Game Festival.

The demo will allow players to get a look at the single-player experience of Grounded. Upon choosing their character, players will be thrust right into the heart of the backyard at sunrise, and will quickly discover that life is different when you’re only one centimeter tall. Over the course of one in-game day, this experience will allow players to craft tools and weapons, build structures, and survive against the various perils of being small. While the demo itself is timed, players will be able to explore the backyard and restart multiple times during the course of the six days it will be available.

Grounded will enter Xbox Game Preview with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Steam Early Access on July 28, 2020. In the meantime, be sure to add Grounded to your Steam wishlist, and stay tuned to Xbox Wire for the latest on Grounded.

The world is a vast, beautiful, and dangerous place – especially when you have been shrunken to the size of an ant. Explore, build, and survive together in this cooperative survival-adventure. Can you thrive alongside the hordes of giant insects, fighting to survive the perils of the backyard? Uncover the mysteries while playing through the story! How did you wind up so small? Who did this to you? How do you go home? These are all answers you will uncover as you play through the story. Solo or with friends – anytime! You can face the backyard alone or together, online, with up to three friends. Not only that, but with the Shared Worlds feature, you can continue to play in your shared world even if the original host is not on, with all your progression saving! (Online console multiplayer requires Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold, sold separately.) Nowhere is safe – not even your base. Creatures can be found roaming the yard in a multitude of environments, such as the depths of the pond, the caverns of the termite den, and even the sweltering heat found in the sandbox. You can even attract them to different places in the yard by activating the MIX.R devices. However, the more you interfere with the creatures in the yard, the higher the chance that they come knocking at your own door, so you better prepare. Play true to your playstyle! Use the in-game customization systems such as Mutations and Milk Molars to activate the bonuses and perks you want for your character. Not only that, but craft and upgrade your armor and weapons to give your character the stats and advantages you need in order to take on the perils of the backyard. It’s time to go big, or never go home!
