What you need to know
- Grounded is Obsidian Entertainment's new IP.
- It is a co-op survival game where you're the size of an ant.
- Xbox Insiders may get to try out Grounded soon.
Grounded is a passion project from Obsidian Entertainment now that it's been acquired by Microsoft, created by a team of just 13 within the studio. Grounded was unveiled during X019 where we got our first glimpse of what the new IP is supposed to be. It looks to blend survival co-op with narrative-driven gameplay and tasks players with surviving the hazards of a yard where they are about the size of an ant.
According to a post from Obsidian, Xbox Insiders may get to try out the game very soon. The post explains that Grounded is making an appearance at PAX East with a panel hosted by Larry Hryb where more details and new game footage will be shared. It won't be playable at that time, but it looks like it soon will be.
Tucked in at the bottom of the announcement, Obsidian appears to hint that Xbox Insiders may be able to get their hands on the game soon.
Grounded is set to launch on Xbox One and PC in 2020 where it will release into Xbox Game Pass. It's unknown whether it will have Xbox Series X support, but given Obsidian's status as a first party studio now, it's very likely.

I always think I'm eligible but I'm an Xbox Insider on PC, not an Xbox Insider which means a completely different thing for console.
It depends where they are testing it if they do a PC test you will be able to play it on PC via the Xbox Insider Hub on PC if they do it on console you will need a console and the Xbox Insider Hub on console.
