Microsoft has announced that the beta flight phase for Obsidian’s new survival game, Grounded, will begin on June 9th. From June 9th and extending through June 14th, players will have an opportunity to play an early demo.
Moreover, Microsoft has announced that Grounded will be part of the Steam Game Festival. As such, PC gamers will be able to download and play the demo via Steam on June 9th.
Grounded is a survival game, featuring a building system, crafting, looting and combat system. Furthermore, the game will allow players to build shelters by knocking down some tufts of grass. The game will also allow players to freely explore the game world.
According to the team, players will have complete freedom in a sandbox environment. Additionally, the game will also have a narrative component just to offer the right motivation.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
