Palworld is launching tomorrow, but can players access it early by using the New Zealand trick? Here’s what you need to know.
The New Zealand trick is a very well-known method in the gaming community. It allows players to access games before they are released in their region. This is because if a game has a local release time, such as midnight everywhere, then New Zealand will technically get it earlier. With Palworld’s release right around the corner, players are wondering if this trick will work for it. It’s no surprise that everyone wants to hop in and pick their starter Pal as soon as possible, considering the sheer amount of hype the game has generated. Fortunately, we have a definitive answer on whether the trick will work. Unfortunately, fans won’t be happy.
No, the New Zealand trick will not work with Palworld. This is because it has a global release time, meaning it releases at the same time everywhere. As a result, those who have their region set to New Zealand won’t gain access to the game before other countries.
Palworld is releasing at 9 pm NZDT (New Zealand time) on Friday, January 19, 2024. That is the same time as 3 am EST/12 am PST/8 am GMT on January 19, which is the game’s official release date and time. Fortunately, those playing it on Xbox or Xbox Game Pass can preload the game right now, allowing them to jump in as soon as it launches. However, Steam players will need to wait until the game is released to start installing it.
