Grounded Digs Into Full Release This September

Grounded full release announcement release date xbox & bethesda games showcase 2022

After being in Game Preview since 2020, Obsidian Entertainment’s bite-sized survival game, Grounded, is ready for a full launch this September, as revealed during the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022. For the uninitiated, Grounded follows a group of children after they are shrunken down to be smaller than a blade of grass. The full version of Grounded will continue the game’s inventive gameplay with access to the whole backyard and all it has in store, but most importantly, it comes with the full story.

Grounded is preparing to leave Game Preview this September as it launches its full release. Find out how the teens got into the yard and the mad scientist behind it in the fully playable campaign – all of which can be experienced alone or with a group of friends! New armor recipes, new weapon recipes, and the giant Mantis await players in this upcoming update.

Grounded is one of Obsidian’s most interesting titles, so it’s nice to see it finally grow into a full build. There will be more to see as we inch closer to launch, but until then, you can watch the Grounded full release announcement trailer below.

Grounded, however, is still without a solid Xbox, PC, and Cloud release date, so keep checking in for more updates from Xbox and Obsidian.
