The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S launches in less than a month and the team at Obsidian Entertainment are preparing a special update for Grounded.
For existing players or those that are about to take their first thrilling step into the backyard, Grounded will be optimized for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S using Smart Delivery technology giving players an automatic upgrade to the best version of the game for no additional cost.
Grounded will target 60fps on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, offering unparalleled gameplay performance for next generation console players, with full 4K support on the Xbox Series X that will help showcase the game’s intricate ant-sized world in incredible detail.
Players will also experience increased graphical fidelity, improved loading times and HDR support, thanks to the power of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, ensuring each blade of grass and every single aphid looks spectacular on your screen.
Grounded is available now on Xbox Game Preview, Xbox Game Pass, Windows 10 Store, and Steam Early Access. Players can also explore Grounded’s dynamic backyard on the go with Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming. The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will be released worldwide on November 10.

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!
