Xbox Insiders can try an early single-player demo of Obsidian's Grounded next month

By Heidi Nicholas,
Xbox Insiders can join the flight for Obsidian's Grounded on June 9th, with the game then joining Xbox Game Preview through Xbox Game Pass Ultimate the following month, on July 28th. The Grounded flight will also be available as part of the Steam Game Festival, with the game also being made available in June through Steam Early Access.

Grounded Flight

The flight runs from June 9th to June 14th, as an early demo of "one day in the life" of the single player campaign. They'll be accepting people for the flight on a "first-come first-serve basis", so if you're not yet an Xbox Insider, you'll need to join the Xbox Insider Program to have a chance to participate. You can then start downloading Grounded through the Xbox Insider Hub program from June 9th, with the opening of the flight to be announced through the game's official Twitter account.

The Xbox Insider flight and Steam demos will run at the same time, with Obsidian then taking on feedback before the game joins Xbox Game Preview through Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Game Pass for PC, Microsoft Store, and Steam Early Access on July 28th. There's only a few months to go before the game is released, and we'll be sure to keep you updated with news. In the meantime, you can check out some of what we know so far, including about the mode for arachnophobes, the 90s theme, the adaptive ecology, and just how small players will be.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
