What you need to know

  • Grounded is an open world survival game that shrinks players down to the size of insects in a suburban backyard.
  • As it's in early access, Grounded gets lots of updates and improvements, and adds features over time.
  • The 0.3.2 release is the second patch update for Grounded's September content update.
  • It includes more bug fixes, and improvements to prevent crashes and instability.

It's only been a few days since the 0.3.1 patch update was released for Grounded, but Obsidian Entertainment is back with yet another release fixated on improving the September content update. Patch update 0.3.2 is rolling out right now with more fixes to help prevent crashes, instability, and poor performance, with some other bug fixes thrown in for good measure.

This is all part of Grounded's Early Access and Game Preview, so expect lots more updates as we go into 2021, past the release of next-gen consoles like the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
