Grounded Crossplay Support explained

Grounded currently has full crossplay and cross-platform support between PC and Xbox in early access and that will carry over to the full 1.0 release in September.

This works smoothly between those playing via the Microsoft Store and on Xbox consoles. However, if you are playing on Steam, you will need to use the Xbox companion app to join friends and survive together.

When playing with others online using crossplay, the host is responsible for the save file for that instance, so be sure they save if you don’t want to lose any progress in the backyard. Cross-save is also available between platforms.
