The Grounded 0.6 update has arrived, introducing bees, mosquitos, and more to the game alongside some changes to some of its fundamental gameplay systems.

If you haven't yet played Grounded, you're missing out on an interesting little survival crafting game. Players are shrunk down to the size of bugs in a massive backyard amidst a strange, sci-fi mystery.— it's up to you to build a base, survive, and figure out just what the heck is going on!

A brand-new update has launched today, moving its development along a bit and introducing some neat new features. You can see some of the new stuff in motion in the Grounded Developer Vlog 10!

What's New in the Grounded 0.6 Update?

The first major addition in the Grounded 0.6 update is three new creatures coming to the backyard. Bees, fireflies, and mosquitoes will now fly around and each of these three bugs can give players some new items to craft. These include:

  • Bee Armor Set
  • Firefly Head Lamp
  • Mosquito Needle

This update also makes some changes to how your equipped items work. To start, they'll no longer take up any of your backpack space — certainly a sensible change since you're wearing or holding these items. Additionally, equipped items will now remain on a player after they die, although they will take a small amount of durability damage as a penalty.

And that's it for the highlights! You can read about all of the changes and fixes in full in the Grounded 0.6 update patch notes. If you haven't yet got into the game, you can buy Grounded on Steam for PC for $29.99 or your regional equivalent; alternatively, you can get it on the Microsoft Store for PC and Xbox at the same price. You can also get Grounded as part of an Xbox Game Pass membership.
