The “Into the Ground” update for Grounded is now available. It brings tons of new content, including bugs, features, and areas, among other things.

New Content

There are three new explorable environments. Are you ready for a sizzle? If yes, then you can head to the BBQ Spill. Here, you’ll find blistering coals that you may have to circumvent to proceed. While venturing into the ashy wastelands is dangerous, you can discover some gear to make it worth your while.

The next area is known as the Wood Pile. Even though things look fine on the surface, you will learn that this is not the case at all. Going deep into the pile of logs will lead you to the Termite Dungeon, so be careful.

The third and final area is the Shed Surroundings. You can encounter new creatures in this place. It is also filled with huge items that you can explore. Who knows, you might find something that can help you in your journey.
