Palworld Developer Working on PvP, Player Trading, Building Updates and Raid Boss

Pocketpair also revealed that the project began development with just four team members and has been in the works for three years.

Pocketpair’s Palworld is available in early access, amassing nearly 300,000 concurrent players on Steam (now at 358,867). In a new Steam post, the developer revealed that the project started with only four developers, gradually growing over its three-year development period.

“Developers who sympathized with Palworld gathered one after another, and the scale of the game grew far beyond what we ever imagined.” As for what’s next, Pocketpair confirmed that it’s working to implement PvP and cross-platform play while adding more Pals over time. Along with PvP and the Arena, it revealed major updates coming to the building system, trading with other players and even a raid boss that guild members must cooperate to defeat.

Palworld is playable on PC and Xbox Series X/S. It’s also available on Game Pass. Check out our review here, where we praised the Pals, presentation, world design and fun mechanics while criticizing some aspects of the combat, building and task automation.
