Grounded: Extra Backpack Storage and Hot Pouch Changes in Update 1.1.0

Update 1.1.0
Update 1.1.0 Steam

Christmas has arrived early in the first-person online multiplayer survival game Grounded. Update 1.1.0 adds a plethora of good changes, including extra space for your backpack and more customizable Hot Pouches.

But first, Obsidian Entertainment has a treat for you. When you play Grounded this December, you can unlock the Holiday Tree and Holiday Wreath building recipes by purchasing them from the Science Shop. Additionally, the Holiday Tree provides you with early morning Christmas goodies in the form of random gifts, only available this month. So what are you waiting for? Go to the Science Shop, stat!

Now onto the changes. The Grounded community has been clamoring for more backpack space for some time now and it seems that the company granted it with many additional rows of inventory space. This allows you to carry more items from your adventures in the yard!

Aside from that, Update 1.1.0 gives you the ability to customize three unique sets of Hot Pouches. For the uninitiated, Hot Pouches in Grounded are just the game’s term for the hotbar, where you can add items you need to use in a snap without pausing the session to go to the inventory. You can tweak the Hot Pouches on the inventory screen as well.
