Obsidian Announces The Outer Worlds 2 and Brings Largest Update to Grounded

During the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase today, we at Obsidian are excited to show off the latest on Grounded and announce one of our new games.

First up, the Grounded team is dropping the biggest content update ever. Building is getting expanded with more materials and the ability to make mushroom structures. Want to transform your base into an awesome castle made of mushroom bricks? Grounded’s got you. Plus, for fans that have been wondering whether we were going to add bosses, they won’t have to wonder anymore. The fearsome Broodmother has found her way to the backyard! She is not for the faint of heart, so for those who may need it, remember that there is an Arachnophobia Mode.

As Grounded is still in Game Preview/Early Access, the team at Obsidian listens to the Grounded community and is adding in a host of highly requested community features. From the ability to sit in chairs to having their own aphid pets – our community has asked for it and we are giving it to them. Plus, the team has added in achievements, so players are also now able to add to their gamer score while playing Grounded. These are just a very small number of all the things that are coming to Grounded on June 30. It’s been an amazing year since Grounded first came out, and we are having as much fun continuing to add cool things as the millions of people who have already joined us in the backyard.

The other big news from Obsidian today is the announcement of The Outer Worlds 2! Taking place in a new star system with a new crew, we are excited to bring everyone back to The Outer Worlds franchise.

And, fans of The Outer Worlds should always remember – It’s not the best choice. It’s Spacer’s Choice.

For those who are wondering about Avowed, the team is hard at work making something we’re sure fans of our games and the Pillars of Eternity universe are going to love. While we are not showing anything right now, we are looking forward to showing off what we have been working on soon.

It’s never been a more exciting time at Obsidian as we get to work on games that we love making. For us, it is about creating worlds for players, where they play who they want to be.

We are humbled by all the support our fans have given us through the years and what you all have built created and exterminated in Grounded. We look forward to seeing what you all do in Avowed, and The Outer Worlds 2 in the future!
