Grounded Launches July 28 for PC, Xbox One, Later on Xbox Series X

Microsoft have announced the release date for Grounded during the Xbox Games Showcase.

Grounded, the new title from Obsidian Entertainment, provides a fresh take on the crafting and survival genre. Players take on the role of children trapped in a “Honey I Shrunk The Kids” moment. Stuck in a backyard and surrounded by hostile insects and critters, players will need to forage for food, build a shelter, and defend themselves against bugs lest they become food.
