Fresh off of the well-received RPG The Outer Worlds, Obsidian revealed its next game at X019. It is the first Obsidian developed title to be published under Xbox Game Studios since the studio was acquired by Microsoft late a year ago. Grounded is a passion project made by just one of Obsidian's dev teams.

The survival game shrinks players down to the size of an ant and tasks them with surviving in a suburban backyard.
While all of this is quite new for the studio, Grounded's co-op is also arguably the newest part. Players must gather, craft and build bases with everyday objects found within the yard, searching for life-saving resources and living alongside giant, peaceful insects while fighting to survive massive hostile inhabitants.
