Players hoping to play Palworld with their pals on other platforms will first need to know if it has crossplay. Here’s everything you need to know.
Palworld is launching into Early Access for Xbox and Steam at launch, allowing the developers to add a whole host of new features. Of course, launching for two different platforms has got fans wondering if there will be crossplay or even cross-platform progression. After all, the ability to play an action-packed Pokemon-like across Xbox and Steam is a dream come true. Unfortunately, for those hoping to hop into a server with their friends on another platform, the dream is not quite ready.
No, there is no crossplay functionality in Palworld at launch. You cannot play Palworld on Xbox Series X/S with someone on Steam and vice versa. This was confirmed via the developer’s official Discord FAQ. However, the developer plans to add crossplay to the game between all available platforms later on.
While the developer hasn’t confirmed an exact release date for crossplay integration into Palworld, users shouldn’t expect it any time soon. The game is releasing into Early Access on both Xbox and PC, meaning that there will be a slew of updates to core features beyond crossplay.
No, Palworld does not have cross-platform progression or cross-saves. You cannot transfer your save data from PC to Xbox and vice versa. Once again, the developer is planning on introducing a cross-save feature later on in the game’s development. However, there has been no confirmation of when this is coming.
