Obsidian’s shrunken-person survival game Grounded will no longer get frequent updates. The developer confirmed instead of releasing smaller content drops, they want to move to larger drops.
Obsidian did clarify their reasoning for doing larger and slightly less frequent updates moving forward” on the game’s official website. The studio stated maintaining a monthly content schedule while taking on bigger tasks is difficult with a small team. Because of this, Obsidian is focusing on “larger features that take time.” This shift gives the studio the space to work on developing “more meaningful [updates] with more and better content.”
The next update for Grounded is set to release on PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in late June. Obsidian said it’s “one of [the] largest yet” for the title. They also outlined some of the changes coming with this update.
It will allow players to flip assets like staircases to mirrored versions, spawn large food items more frequently, and adds an enhanced TAYZ.T defense variant called ARC.R. The June update will include new features for Photo mode and introduces new building pieces.
