We are excited to inform you that Palworld will be a Day 1 Xbox Game Pass release, both for consoles and PCs.

That's it! If you are an Xbox Game Pass subscriber, you can jump into this exciting and sometimes cute open-world survival/crafting game on Jan. 19, 2024, without having to open your wallet.

Palworld Platforms: Free on PC & Consoles?

Palworld is on PC (via Steam) and on the Microsoft Store. You can play Palworld for free via Xbox Game Pass (PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One). If you don't have an Xbox Game Pass subscription at all, you can always purchase the game's Early Access version on Steam for $29.99 or via the Xbox Store. 

The only other barrier to entry for PC gamers specifically is the game's system requirements.

While you wait eagerly for the release of Palworld on PC and consoles, check out the game's Early Access Release Date trailer below to get hyped!

We can't wait for Palworld to release so we can meet and catch them all, filling our Paldeck with a hundred Pals and stopping poachers in their tracks. Check out our ever-expanding Palworld section to learn more!
