We noticed a number of cool issues throughout immediately’s Xbox presentation at E3 2021. Starfield, Halo Infinite multiplayer, and S.T.A.L.Ok.E.R. 2 all look implausible, however they pale compared to the Grounded section, by means of which the devs at Obsidian Leisure used the most important stage in gaming to disclose that gamers of the miniature survival recreation will quickly have the ability to sit within the furnishings they construct.
Okay, positive, sitting is simply half of a bigger Grounded enlargement often called the Shroom and Doom Replace, however apparently the flexibility to plop down in a chair was a standard sufficient request from the group that Obsidian has lastly seen match so as to add to the sport. Come to consider it, it is fairly unusual that the builders put two completely different chairs in Grounded with no method for characters to truly get pleasure from, so I’m glad gamers lastly have the chance to kick up their ft between resource-gathering excursions.
Different additions embrace mushroom-based buildings, a cute little aphid pet for gamers to tame, and an enormous spider boss often called the Broodmother. Looks as if a very good alternative to take a look at the sport’s arachnophobia accessibility settings if you happen to haven’t already, although seeing something in a darkish cave is sufficient to give me a fright, blob or no. And if you happen to’ve been ready to earn valuable factors to your achievements, that facet of the work-in-progress recreation goes to be unlocked as nicely.
Obsidian Leisure first launched Grounded on Xbox One and PC in 2020, permitting gamers to stay out their very own Honey, I Shrunk the Children adventures as miniaturized teenagers deserted in an expansive yard surroundings. The builders have stored the sport contemporary with frequent content material updates, and within the time since launch, the sport has additionally obtained an upgraded Xbox Collection X/S model.
Grounded’s Shroom and Doom replace arrives June 30.
