Gameplay will primarily consist of building bases, scrounging for resources, and combating various hostile elements, but it’s not entirely clear how all of these elements will come together. For instance, the PvE vs. PvP ratio hasn’t been firmly established at this time. It’s not entirely clear if there will be a PvP component or any other multiplayer options outside of the 4-player co-op gameplay that makes up the core of the experience.
As the game begins, you shrink down to the size of an ant to conduct a few science experiments. But surprise! Things quickly go haywire and you are unable to grow back to your normal size. A zany robot walks you through the early hours and helps you survive the night, but we suspect there is more going on with this unnamed bot than it initially seems. Ultimately, Grounded looks to offer a lighthearted and fun story.
