Obsidian Entertainment and Xbox Game Studios Announce Grounded at X019

A clear departure from the RPGs that Obsidian is known for - including the excellent and still very fresh in our minds The Outer Worlds - Grounded looks to be an interesting take on the survival game genre.

The trailer shows a bunch of creatures, shrunk down to the size of a grain of rice.

Grounded now doesn't have a release date, but it's expected to come to the Xbox One sometime in spring 2020. Players must gather, craft and build bases with everyday objects found within the yard, searching for life-saving resources and living alongside giant, peaceful insects while fighting to survive massive hostile inhabitants.

Grounded provides a mix of environmental and narrative driven story telling. There is a focus on co-operation and crafting, where up to four players must work together to venture further into the environment to undertake increasingly unsafe threats. This will all take place in a "versatile, handcrafted sandbox structure" and will let players "create their own experience from the ground up". According to the information provided Grounded is being put together by a small team at Obsidian - so it shouldn't be considered the next and only game in development at the studio.

"Grounded is a true passion project for the team", said Feargus Urquhart, CEO at Obsidian Entertainment. "It's a flawless setting to flex our creative muscles".

"We first saw Grounded in development past year when Obsidian Entertainment joined our team". We're fortunate to be given the freedom to continue flexing our creative muscles and develop the games we want to make.
