Guide: How To Play The Free Demo Of Obsidian's Grounded Later Today

Update (Tue 16th Jun, 2020 18:20 BST): The demo is reportedly now live via the Xbox Insider Hub and Steam. Enjoy!

Original story (Tue 16th Jun, 2020 13:30 BST): A few days later than originally scheduled, Obsidian is making a free, limited-time demo of its upcoming survival adventure game Grounded available to play for the next week through June 22.

The single-player demo, which goes live later today around 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST, will require you to be signed up to the Xbox Insider program if you want to play on Xbox One. You'll then be able to head into the Xbox Insider Hub to download the demo, which will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Alternatively, it'll also be possible to download it via the Xbox Insider Hub on PC, while non-Xbox Insiders will be able to play the demo (on PC) via the Steam platform instead.

We'll let you know when it's officially released later today!

The world is a vast, beautiful and dangerous place – especially when you have been shrunk to the size of an ant. Explore, build and survive together in this cooperative survival adventure. Can you thrive alongside the hordes of giant insects, fighting to survive the perils of the backyard?
