In case you missed it, Grounded is optimized for the Xbox Series X|S, so those who want to get the most out of Grounded will want an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S. Fortunately, we’re keeping close tabs on where you can buy an Xbox Series X|S. For those who haven’t tried Grounded yet, the game is included in Xbox Game Pass, but is also completely free to play on Steam for this weekend only.

The changelog for Grounded patch update 0.4.1 includes:
