Explore New Locations
The Crab Sandbox
Dig up buried treasure and find ways to survive the sweltering heat of the Sandbox, or wait until night and venture forth in the dark. Either way, you'll have to discover new ways to survive while avoiding your new antlion friends!
The Black Ant Hill
Introducing a new sprawling anthill in the western yard full of black ants and other secrets. This dungeon allows players to uncover new craftable weapons and armor, and includes a new mini-boss within its depths.
The Trash Heap
Too precious to throw away, but not precious enough for the Trash Heap! Here, players will be able to uncover some of the trash left in the backyard. From food items in the knocked-over trash can to the AARTZ 3000, it'll be interesting to see what the players designate as treasure of their own.
The Picnic Table
Something's abuzz over at the Picnic Table! Joining the beehive, players will now find trash from yesterday's lunch, along with the latest and greatest in tabletop RPGs, Minotaurs and Myrmidons vol. II! Although the players will be too tiny to play, they can have fun exploring some of the components.
Armor & Weapons
Not one, not two, but three new sets have made their way into Grounded! Plus, we have made some changes to the way armor works by adding new classifications and adjusting set bonuses to make sure you can prepare for surviving the backyard in the best way possible. Oh yeah, and don't forget the new weapons and shiny new shovel either. So hop in the game, craft your new gear, and celebrate with some glorious Hot Chachas!
Meet the new Neighbors
The infected mites and weevils have some new friends moving into the Haze area with them who are just exploding with excitement to meet you. On top of that, the Trash Heap, the Sandbox, and the Black Anthill have new tenants who are all moved in and ready for the backyard block party. These new friends are here to stay, and no, they aren't spiders, but we know you'll be pleasantly surprised when you meet them!
This update brings with it a handful of new features that will help you customize your playstyle. From the Yoked Girth Milk Molar system that allows for individual and partywide bonuses, a Smithing Station that will let you upgrade and augment your weapons and tools, and the newly added Brain Power system to help you with Raw Science management. Are you ready to take more control over your destiny as you continue to survive and explore the backyard?
