What you need to know

  • Grounded is a unique open-world survival game currently in early access, and gets new updates constantly.
  • Today, the team at Obsidian Entertainment is releasing the 0.10.2 patch update for Grounded.
  • The patch update follows the major 'Shroom and Doom Update,' and includes a handful of important fixes.
  • Most notably, players on older PCs are less prone to crashes, and pets no longer set off traps.

Grounded has long been an impressive entry in the busy genre of best Xbox survival games, but the recently released Shroom and Doom Update certainly elevated it to a new level. Today, the team at Obsidian Entertainment is releasing Grounded's 0.10.2 patch update to all players, which includes plenty of bug fixes to make the recent content update more polished and stable.

Grounded's early access is quite active, with the game receiving regular updates with new content, features, and fixes. The 0.10.2 patch update doesn't include a staggeringly long list of changes, but it does make crashes less frequent (always an important improvement), and makes it so that pets no longer trigger traps, which would be an unfortunate way to lose a companion.

Grounded is currently available for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Game Pass. You'll find the changelog for Grounded 0.10.2 below, but we also have every Grounded changelog in one place.
