Grounded is closing out Monday with a bang by releasing the first patch update for the recently-released January Content Update. That update was notable for adding the much-anticipated flying insects to Grounded like mosquitoes, fireflies, and even bees. Now, patch update 0.6.1 is rolling out to Grounded's early access on Xbox consoles and PC with a series of bug fixes and one small addition.
The headline features in this modest patch includes additional audio for flying insects, resolutions for a handful of crashes, and a few fixes aimed at save issues.
Grounded isn't out in full yet, but it already looks set to dominate our list of Best Survival Games for Xbox when it does.
