Grounded is already releasing a second patch for the Pond Update

The Grounded team has had an incredibly busy week, from releasing the positively massive Pond Update, to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S enhancements at the same time, to the 0.4.1 patch update last night, and now with the latest 0.4.2 patch update that’s rolling out just in time for the weekend. The recently released Pond Update was the largest Grounded has seen yet, and that means a host of new issues and problems that need to be fixed before the next content update in Grounded’s early access.
