Obsidian Reveals Grounded

Xbox Wire has details on Grounded, a first-person, co-op survival game coming in spring 2020 for Windows and Xbox One, saying this will be released on Steam as well as the Microsoft Store. In Grounded, players will be shrunk to the size of ants, though neither Paul Rudd nor Rick Moranis seem to be involved. Here's the Announce Trailer and here are the details:
During X019 in London, Xbox Game Studios and Obsidian Entertainment today announced Grounded, a new first-person, co-op survival game coming Spring 2020 to Xbox One digitally through Xbox Game Preview and with Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft Store, and on Steam. Grounded will be the first Xbox Game Preview title available with Xbox Game Pass.

In Grounded, players are shrunken to the size of an ant and tasked with surviving in the unique micro-world of a suburban backyard. Players must gather, craft and build bases with everyday objects found within the yard, searching for life-saving resources and living alongside giant, peaceful insects while fighting to survive massive hostile inhabitants.

Grounded provides a mix of environmental and narrative driven story telling. Set in a versatile, handcrafted sandbox structure it allows players to create their own experience from the ground up. Tasks that may seem approachable when human-sized become a challenge in this dangerous backyard landscape. This familiar yet fantastical world can be navigated solo or in four-person co-operative multiplayer, where players work together to complete missions or explore the intricately detailed world.

Created by a small development team, one of many working on new projects in the studio, Grounded is a true passion project. This title has given the team the creative outlet to bring their years of developing highly regarded games to bear on the survival genre. RPGs like The Outer Worlds will always be in Obsidian’s DNA, but from time to time we want to stretch our creative muscles and try things that might be a little different.

Microsoft has been a fantastic partner for Grounded which was in development long before the acquisition last year. We’re fortunate to be given the freedom to continue flexing our creative muscles and develop the games we want to make.

This is an attempt at a Fortnite clone.

Et tu, Obsidian?
Even Obsidian has gone full GaaS. Times were good while they lasted I guess.

Hrm, mildly interesting. Good for Obsidian to get out of RPGs for awhile, I guess.

It would have been more educational if the shrunken kids were immediately annihilated by ants moving at 5 times their speed, armored like tanks, 200 times stronger than a similarly sized human, but that would be another project entirely.

Coop survival... sheesh. Oh well, hopefully Obsidian gets some decent money from this and makes a great RPG next.

A kids game. If we were insect size we'd be so dead.

So is this going to be another Sea of Thieves?
Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.
