In today’s update for GroundedWe bring flying insects into the backyard, and mosquitoes, fireflies and bees end up on the world. The team wanted to bring in flying creatures Grounded for some time as it was a top community request for our ever evolving backyard.
Like the population of the creatures in Grounded As these new additions grow, there are even more items that players can craft. For this update, Bee Armor, a Firefly Head Lamp, and the Rapier-like Mosquito Needle are new recipes that players can research and craft once they’ve fixed the new bugs. But that’s not all! Players can now craft a shield from weevil pieces that players can use to block attacks that previously couldn’t be blocked.
Along with the new creatures and crafting recipes, some new quality of life features have been implemented. According to community feedback, equipped items no longer take up inventory space and equipped item slots instead. Not only that, if a player dies, all equipped items remain on the character, making it easier to travel back to their backpack so that their items can be recovered less painfully.
We hope players love these bugs and updates as much as we made them! As always, we hope to hear what our community thinks of these new creatures as we continue to build on our Xbox Game Preview experience together.
To learn more about the details of these new additions in the backyard, check out the latest information Grounded Developer vlog on the Obsidian YouTube channel.
