Is Palworld Crossplay & Cross-Platform?

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.

Does Palworld Have Crossplay?

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.

  1. Hey, thanks for the article but it didn’t answer my question.

    Palworld is also coming to Pc game pass. Do we know whether someone on “Xbox” pc game pass can play with someone on steam? I’d assume yes as they’re both pc versions of the game but it’s not clear.

    1. Hey Max, the developers have stated that Palworld will not support crossplay between Xbox and Steam “at launch, but are working to make this a possibility as soon as possible.”

      We can’t confirm 100% if this includes Microsoft Windows and PC, but we will update this article as soon as we know!
