Palworld is on Game Pass, Xbox and PC

There’s been some huge hype surrounding the release of Palworld, as players have looked forward to the opportunity to go Pal collecting in a dark Pokemon world. Now it’s time for those opportunities to take hold with release on Game Pass, Xbox and PC. 

Running as a Game Preview title is Palworld from the Pocket Pair team. Game Preview means that this is not a full release – and as such, we won’t be reviewing for the time being – but it is in a place that will allow you to enjoy what it brings. See it as an Early Access look at Palworld, as you and the community look to help those at Pocket Pair hone things in the best possible way. 

Game Preview and Game Pass combine

It’s present on Xbox and PC, but the big draw of Palworld is the decision to run via Game Pass. That should mean a whole plethora of gamers get the chance to fight, farm, build and work, all for just a low monthly subscription cost. 

Dive in and you’ll find a Pokemon-like affair, just different. Palworld has you leaving side by side with the mysterious Pals. it’s these little guys with whom you can trust to help you out in your every day life, fighting, breeding, working. But much like anything in life, you can sell them too. Or eat them, if you must. 

Survival elements come to the fore in Palworld on Game Pass, Xbox and PC, as does production, dungeon exploration, breeding, messing with genetics and more. With solo play available alongside that of multiplayer, you can even tend to your little Pals with a, um, pal in tow. 

Like in Minecraft, there is an opportunity to create your game server to play with friends, and don’t forget before creating a server to choose the best Palworld hosting.

Included features in Palworld on Game Pass

Included in the Game Preview version of Palworld on Xbox and Game Pass are a ton of features. Expect these to be built upon, amended, as the Pocket Pair team work their wonders…

  • Survival – In a harsh environment where food is scarce and vicious poachers roam, danger waits around every corner. To survive, you must tread carefully and make difficult choices…even if that means eating your own Pals when the time comes.
  • Mounts & Exploration – Pals can be mounted to traverse the land, sea and sky—allowing you to traverse all kinds of environment as you explore the world.
  • Building Structures – Want to build a pyramid? Put an army of Pals on the job. There are no labor laws for Pals, so exploit them to your heart’s content.
  • Production – Find a variety of useful Pals to make fire, generate electricity, or mine ore so that you can live a life of comfort.
  • Farming – Some Pals are good at planting seeds, while others are skilled at watering or harvesting crops. Work together with your Pals to create an idyllic farmstead.
  • Factories & Automation – Letting Pals do the work is the key to automation. Build a factory, place a Pal in it, and they’ll keep working as long as they’re fed—until they’re dead, that is.
  • Dungeon Exploration – With Pals on your side you can tackle even the most dangerous areas. When the time comes, you might have to sacrifice one to save your skin. They’ll protect your life—even if it costs their own.
  • Breeding & Genetics – Breed a Pal and it will inherit the characteristics of its parents. Combine rare pals to create the strongest Pal of them all!
  • Poaching & Crime – Endangered Pals live in wildlife sanctuaries. Sneak in and capture rare Pals to get rich quick! It’s not a crime if you don’t get caught, after all.
  • Multiplayer – Multiplayer is supported, so invite a friend and go on an adventure together! And of course you can battle your friends and trade Pals, too. Note: PvP will be implemented in a future update
