During X019 in London, the annual global celebration of all things Xbox, we announced Grounded, a new first-person, co-op survival game. Grounded will be available Spring 2020 for Xbox One digitally through Xbox Game Preview and with Xbox Game Pass, the Microsoft Store, and on Steam. Grounded will be the first Xbox Game Preview title available with Xbox Game Pass. 

 In Grounded, you are shrunk to the size of an ant and must survive in the beautiful yet perilous micro-world of a suburban backyard. This harsh and dangerous landscape can be navigated solo or with up to three additional players in co-operative multiplayer, as you work together to progress through thrilling story-based missions or explore the farthest reaches of the intricately detailed game world. You must gather, craft and build bases with everyday objects, searching for life-saving resources such as the dew off grass to quench your thirst or transforming an acorn shell into body armor to defend against a host of unpredictable creatures. Can you thrive against the hordes of giant insects, fighting to survive the perils of the backyard?

Grounded offers our unique take on survival games, creating an unforgettable experience. It's a perfect setting to flex our creative muscles. We want to create a versatile sandbox where players can create their own memorable experiences.

Keep an eye out on this page to see updates, blogs, and any other cool news we have for you as we move closer to Spring 2020. Looking forward to the adventures we'll have together!
