The survival game by Obsidian Entertainment is receiving a big update this month, called Hot and Hazy. It adds a, literal, Sandbox area which adds buried treasures and a bunch of dangerous elements. With sunrays being your biggest enemy in this Sahara-esque environment in the backyard. Another new area introduced in this update is the picknick table, which includes a large mountain of trash and an anthill filled with black ants. This anthill is like a dungeon, where players can test their skills, weaponry and armour.
The Hot and Hazy update also sees the addition of a new upgrade system. Players can collect Milk Molars, which the robot BURG.L will use to boost the stats for you or your party members.
Wanna test out the update before launch? Then there’s some good news! The Obsidian team invites you to play the new update early:
”Calling all players! You wanna help us test the Hot and Hazy update? Good, because now you can!
Note for the test: The new areas are still in active development. We encourage players to build in these areas for feedback and testing purposes, but please keep in mind that the terrain and objects in these areas might shift or move before the official 0.11 release. Please do not expect any new bases to work completely when moving over to a non-test build. Thank you!
The test is optional, but we always appreciate the extra help! Please keep in mind that this game is still in the early development phase, and there is always a risk when testing out new features. Any progress you make on the test server may or may not carry over, so please keep this in mind when you join. We love having you all help us and appreciate it greatly.
After joining the test server, be sure to join our Discord server if you haven’t yet so that you can chat with others who are testing! Not only that, you’ll have an easy way to share your feedback and suggestions with the community and directly with the dev team as well!
We hope you enjoy your time in the Public Test Server and stay tuned for more Grounded news!
Stay safe, and stay Grounded!”
