Grounded has been relatively quiet since its last major update, the official release of the massive Pond Update that also included full support for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. That doesn’t mean the Grounded team hasn’t been hard at work with patches and the next big content update planned for the game, however. Today, the team at Obsidian Entertainment have announced that their public test is opening again to test an update for Grounded.
This is different from Grounded’s early access, as public tests are meant for dedicated players to opt-in to in order to test big updates that otherwise might be too buggy. This latest public test is presumably for Grounded’s next content update, but it also makes some big changes to how saves and save files work, which should hopefully improve the experience for everyone. Because of this, the Grounded team is asking that testers be extra cautious, as save files brought into the public test cannot leave the public test until the update goes live eventually.
It’ll be exciting to see what Grounded has planned for its future, especially as the game has already seen a ton of success with over 5 million players as of last month. If you want to leap into Grounded yourself with up to three of your friends, pick up one of the Best Headsets for Xbox Series X|S to make sure you never miss a sound or lose communication.
It’s a big(ger) world out there.
