Palworld, the new survival game which involves creature-collecting has become a sensational hit on launch day itself. On its debut day, Palworld, a new survival game that collects creatures and has been termed “Pokémon with guns” by fans, went viral.
As one of the most popular video game franchises ever, Pokémon is exclusive to the Nintendo console, so, understandably, players on other platforms are excited about the prospect of capturing and engaging in combat with strange animals in an open environment.
Its longevity and whether its initial sales figures result from its being a Pokémon clone joke following its announcement are still up for debate. This is the ideal moment to start when everyone else is still getting to know the world. You wish to avoid falling behind.
Is Palworld a cross-platform game?
This can be played with pals on multiple platforms, but is that still an option? This is what we currently understand.
At debut, the game had no cross-platform functionality. Cross-platform compatibility is a project that the developers are working on and hope to finish “as soon as possible.”
#Palworld has sold over 7 million copies in only 5 days!
Thank you very much!!
We continue to be hard at work addressing the issues and bugs some users are experiencing.

The cross-platform play was mentioned in a Q&A on the business’ official Discord channel with a clear response,
“Not at launch, but we are working to make this a possibility as soon as possible!”

Where and how can you play Palworld currently?
As of right now, just Steam and Xbox are offering the game. Neither the PlayStation 5 nor the Nintendo Switch versions of the game are scheduled to release. It should be a little simpler to handle cross-platform functionality between the two platforms. This is good news, however, for PC users since they will be able to play the game easily.
Usually, games launch first on PlayStation and later on PC, due to which PC users have to wait. Sometimes, this waiting period stretches to around 2-3 years as well. With that being said, cross-platform playability could add another reason for the game to become a blockbuster and even surpass Pokemon.
