What you need to know
- Grounded is an open world survival game from Obsidian Entertainment that shrinks players down to miniscule sizes.
- The game is in early access, and already has a sizeable group of fans and players.
- Grounded gets new updates all the time, and it looks like the next content update is shaping up to be a big one.
- The team is teasing a public test for the update starting October 26, with the update fully releasing to early access afterwards.
Grounded is in early access, which means a lot of updates, and a constant stream of new features and content. So far, content updates have come in monthly cadences (okay, it's just two so far), but we're always looking towards Grounded's next content update. We can't say exactly what will be included in the next update, but the team at Grounded is teasing something big on their Twitter channel, and we're very excited to see what's in store for one of the best survival games to come out in recent memory.
A new public test will be starting on Monday, October 26th, for ALL PLAYERS! 🙌

Don't expect any real teasers in the above video, but we do know a few things we didn't know before. Grounded's next content update is the biggest the game has seen yet, which means we could finally see some of the major features we've been seeing rumors of (and have speculated on here). We also know that the update isn't quite ready yet, so Grounded is going to begin a small, insider test of the update (as part of its recently created Public Test ring) so that players can take a look before release.
This likely means that Grounded won't get a proper update in October, but I'm positive no one will be complaining when the update does land.
What do you think the next content update could be? Are you excited, and will you participate in the public test? Let us know in the comments below!
It's a big(ger) world out there.
