Taking to X (formerly Twitter) to make the celebratory announcement, the developer also affirms that it’s continually trying to iron out any issues that pop up for Palworld players. If you head over to the r/palworld subreddit, you can see how several have reported a diversity of different problems plaguing the experience, but tell you what, some of them are just outright funny. Take this soft landing for example.
Yesterday, Pocketpair confirmed that it has released a new update for Xbox and Microsoft Store version PC players that takes care of numerous bugs. Earlier, it addressed server outage pangs that seemingly booted users out of their live sessions. But, of course, Palworld is only in early access, and the response that it has gone on to receive was certainly unexpected, both by the devs themselves and the players.And as the success of Palworld marches ahead, the comparisons between this game and Pokemon keep coming as well. Some are on the side of the former, while others voice their opinion on the ethical concerns and the controversy surrounding Palworld. Amid all the drama, it’s hard to just side-step the fact that Palworld is a genuinely fun game and more than a mere imitation of the Pokemon franchise.
On a side note, Palworld is set to receive more gameplay features in the near future, including a dedicated PvP or Arena mode that will have contestants battling out with each other, “major building system updates,” Raid Boss fights, and more. You should also know that Pocketpair initially plans on keeping Palworld in early access for 1 year, so expect a ton of improvements down the road.

Palworld was released on January 19, 2024, for the Xbox Series X|S and PC, with no PlayStation port at the moment. eXputer’s 4.5/5.0 review of the title praises it for a number of things, with reviewer Rabiya Rizwan remarking, “[It’s] one of the most unique games in the survival genre, which is often generic and repeats the same elements in almost every other title.”
