Today Obsidian Entertainment and Microsoft released a new trailer and news about their survival game Grounded.
First of all, we learned that over five million players have played the game since it launched in early access a few months ago.
The trailer features a brand new update released within the early access version of the game adding a new underwater biome for players to explore.
Of course, this means new creatures to fight and hunt (and old ones that have learned to swim. You should likely steer clear of the trailer if you suffer from arachnophobia), a giant Koi fish boss, new crafting recipes for gear, new landmarks, and more.
You can check out what’s in store in the trailer below.
Incidentally, the developers promise to focus on larger updates going forward, while reducing frequency to make sure everything is in tip-top shape.
Grounded is available in preview/early access on Xbox consoles and PC including Game Pass on both platforms.
If you want to see more, you can check out the latest story trailer, plenty of gameplay, the first trailer showing this small world in action, a gallery of screenshots, the first gameplay, and a look at the previous update.
