Palworld’s Player Count Has Grown Exponentially Since Release

A total of 19 million players have logged onto Palworld's servers.

Story Highlights

  • Palworld has been making waves the moment it came out in early access about two weeks ago.
  • The latest update from the side of the devs confirms exponential player count growth in Palworld.
  • On Xbox, the total player count has crossed 7 million users, while on Steam, the figure is even bigger.

Palworld is larger than life right now with its incredible early access success that sees the ambitious new third-person shooter by Japanese developer Pocketpair selling millions of copies and achieving feat after feat in terms of overall player count. And thanks to the flow of consistent updates from the side of the developer, it’s clear that the people up high want to keep Palworld’s success bursting this way. 

As of today, the Pokemon-inspired shooter has clocked a gigantic 19 million player count across the two of the platforms it’s on, namely PC and Xbox Series X|S. Going into a little more detail here, you’ve got 12 million players on PC making up for that figure alone, with the remnant 7 million being solely on Xbox. Elsewhere, a new report by Xbox Wire notes that Palworld has become the third-biggest Game Pass launch ever.

The response from fans has been tremendous and it’s incredible to see the millions of players around the world enjoying Palworld. This is just the beginning for us and Palworld, and the feedback we’re gathering while in Game Preview will allow us to continue to improve the experience for Pal Tamers across all platforms,” says Pocketpair CEO Takuro Mizobe. 

And the fact that the game is merely in early access right now speaks volumes about its overall presence. The last sales-pertaining update I jotted down here at eXputer was only a week ago when Pocketpair came forward and said that its latest venture has rolled over 8 million units to date, an incredible feat bar none for a title that’s not even out yet. Palworld hit that sweet spot just right for the playing community.

Palworld was released on January 19, 2024, for the Xbox Series X|S, and PC. No PlayStation 5 port for it is out now, but as per this FAQ page of Palworld on Steam, it could be “considered” during development. eXputer reviewed the third-person shooter and rated it 4.5/5.0, with my colleague Rabiya Rizwan calling it “one of the most unique games in the survival genre.” 

For new players, I highly recommend keeping pace with the array of Palworld guides we’ve curated over time, including how to get the Legendary Rocket Launcher and the best flying mounts to make the best out of the game.
