Grounded official artwork for the Koi Pond update

[Update #2]: After two years in Early Access, Grounded will be launching in full on September 27th, 2022.

[Update]: Grounded's Hot and Hazy update is adding four new zones, stat upgrades and a bunch of busy bugs!

I hope you're in the mood for a bit of a swim, because Grounded's Update 0.4 is all about expanding and fleshing out the Koi Pond area. What this means in gameplay terms is that you can expect to see a bunch of new critters, everything from tadpoles to the diving bell spider, and as the name itself would suggest, the gigantic and always-hungry Koi fish!

Should you manage to tackle all of these new foes, you will be able to use their various bits and pieces to craft an assortment of new gear and decorations. Besides being able to dress up nice and fancy, you'll definitely want some of these items as they will allow you to explore Grounded's underwater areas without constantly worrying about silly things like breathing or being able to see.

Much like all of the other regions, the pond houses a couple of fun secrets, as well as a massive research complex. What exactly lies within, that you'll have to figure out yourself. If you're not in the exploratory mood, however, it's also worth mentioning that Update 0.4 has added buoyant foundations in order to help you build some truly awesome fortresses!

As for what all of this looks like in action, that you can find out through the recently posted and rather self-aware trailer. Have a gander, it's certainly a fun one:
