What you need to know

  • Grounded is an open-world survival game from Obsidian Entertainment, currently in early access.
  • The game gets monthly content updates and regular patches to fix bugs and improve the game.
  • The latest patch update, 0.8.2, is now rolling out to Grounded players on Xbox and PC.
  • This is a very minor update, and only includes two bug fixes and nothing else.

Just a few days after the release of the 0.8.1 patch update, Grounded players are getting another bug fixing release for the Grounded early access. The 0.8.2 patch update has been released to the public as an extremely minor bug-fixing update. Don't expect a world of changes with this patch update, as 0.8.2 only fixes two bugs. Still, every fix is important.

More specifically, the latest Grounded update resolves one of the issues with in-game music, as well as ensures that Trail Markers actually load correctly whenever you get into game.
