This week's major release for the Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass for that matter, is Obsidian Entertainment's small but big backyard adventure, Grounded.

A few days ago, we heard how the game enjoyed a very successful start on Valve's Steam platform, and now the game's director himself, Adam Brennecke, has taken to Twitter to share a more official update - revealing more than one million players have tried out this cooperative survival-adventure since it launched. He also shared this over on Xbox Wire.

It's quite an impressive feat considering how the game was developed by a small team of 13 people in just a few years. As also noted, there'll be monthly updates and the first one is currently scheduled for 27th August. Keep an eye out for more information about this in the near future.

Until then, tell us - have you played Grounded yet? What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below.
