Grounded Details

A Steam Listing has appeared for Grounded, offering a tentative 2021 release window and new details for this survival game from Obsidian Entertainment revealed late last year (thanks Wccftech). They don't specify when Early Access will commence, but they do include a bit on what it will include:
Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?
“We want to make the best experience possible and putting an exact timeline on an early-in-development game is very challenging. That said, we also want to be transparent with our community, so we will give you our best guess with the understanding that these plans may change. The current target for Grounded’s full release is sometime in 2021.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?
“There is a ton of great content we want to deliver with Grounded, but more importantly some of the ideas and features may change dramatically based on the feedback we receive from the community. Our current plan for the full release is to have the following features:

  • Complete storyline
  • Steam Achievements and Cards
  • More bugs! The insect kind.
  • More environments and biomes
  • More crafting recipes
  • Additional features and updated systems to improve the entire experience”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?
“At the start of Early Access, the following features/content will be available in Grounded:

  • Roughly 20% of the full storyline
  • 3 major biomes – the grasslands, the hedge, and the haze
  • Crafting
  • Base building
  • Single and online co-op play
  • First two tiers of weapons and armor
  • At least ten insects
  • Arachnophobia mode”
