Grounded Update Brings Halloween Goodness To The Backyard (VIDEO)
If “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” was a fully fleshed-out survival game, you’d get Grounded. That’s part of the reason why over one-million people stampeded into the backyard to survive the dangers that lurk around every corner. In the developer vlog below, Obsidian Entertainment details nearly every change and addition coming to Grounded, and they’re ready to celebrate Halloween with all the survivors too.
The new Grounded update makes some potentially deadly adjustments – from the reduction of the Bombardier Beetle’s regular attack but deadlier acid attacks, extra stinky stink bugs, to soldier ants throwing down some new moves. In terms of Halloween, Obsidian Entertainment is getting into the spooky spirit by bringing tasteful and tasty decor to the yard. There is an unfortunate lack of spooky milkshakes. Here are a few new features coming to Grounded:
Grounded Update Patch Notes
