The Grounded team is back with another update to the game, this time bringing not only some fixes to the backyard, but new content and localized text as well.
On the new content front, the team has players covered with a new lab that they can reach in the Hedge. Players can now explore these not-so abandoned hallways that were once inaccessible with the help of the newly added ziplines found throughout the Hedge. Speaking of ziplines, players can now craft their own ziplines to use in the yard and create new ways to get around. Be sure to use the new Spinning Wheel to craft the key ingredient for the ziplines, just try not to get stuck in a spider web when going after the materials needed.
In the spirit of Halloween, some new items will be appearing in the backyard throughout the month of October. Some are for decoration, others are for harvesting if you like that sort of treat, while others still can be used for recreation with friends or by yourself.
Now back to the aforementioned localization update. The game is getting localized text for French, Italian, German, and Spanish. More languages are on the way, so be on the lookout for them.
To learn more about the details of each of these new additions to the backyard and more, check out the latest Grounded Developer Vlog on the Obsidian YouTube Channel.
Grounded is available now on Xbox Game Preview, Xbox Game Pass, Windows 10 Store, and Steam Early Access for $29.99.

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 Game Pass Core, 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!
