Palworld Sells 1 Million Copies in 8 Hours, and Steam's Servers Are Struggling - IGN Daily Fix

Palworld Breaks Sales Records and Overwhelms Steam Servers

Palworld: A Hit on Steam and Xbox

Palworld, a game often described as “Pokémon with guns,” has taken the gaming world by storm. Developer Pocketpair announced that the game sold over 1 million copies in just 8 hours after its release on Steam and Xbox. With a steady stream of positive user reviews, it’s clear that players are loving the game. As a result, Palworld is currently sitting at third place on Steam’s most played list, with around 350,000 concurrent players.

Connectivity Issues and Multiplayer Features

While the success of Palworld is undeniable, the massive launch has caused connectivity issues on the game’s servers. Some users have experienced difficulties connecting to the game. Pocketpair has acknowledged the issue and reassured players that they are working to resolve it as soon as possible. In the meantime, players have reported success in connecting after attempting to reconnect multiple times or waiting for a period after launching the game.

On Steam, multiplayer allows up to 32 players to inhabit the same world cooperatively. However, there are limitations for players on Xbox or PC through Game Pass or the Microsoft store, as co-op is currently limited to two to four players. Pocketpair has addressed these limitations on the Palworld Discord and expressed their desire to have dedicated servers on Xbox. Despite their efforts, the studio has acknowledged the challenges in negotiating dedicated servers for the Xbox platform.
