Palworld: Is it Free to Play?

Players are wondering whether Palworld, the massive open-world monster-catching survival game, is free. Here’s what you need to know.

From over 100 Pals to collect to survival mechanics, a huge open world, and the ability to play multiplayer or offline singleplayer if you prefer, Palworld offers players a wealth of content. Of course, with the likes of Genshin Impact offering vast open-world experiences for free, it’s no surprise that some players are curious as to how much Palworld costs. Fortunately, we have a definitive answer on whether Palworld is free-to-play.

Is Palworld Free to Play?

No, Palworld is not free-to-play. It costs US$29.99/£24.99 to purchase on both Steam and Xbox, but will then be yours to keep. Of course, it is also available through Xbox Game Pass. So, if you have that subscription, then it is technically free.

In fact, it’s worth noting that the developers have said the price could increase once Palworld leaves Early Access. On the game’s Steam store page, when answering whether the game’s price will change during or after the Early Access period, the developers have said, “The price of the game may increase at or closer to the official release.”

So, fans should definitely not expect Palworld to go free-to-play at any point. If anything, it will get more expensive at a later date. If you don’t want to pay full price for it, you can opt for the Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass versions. That way, you only need to pay for the subscription, which is cheaper than the base game.

That’s everything you need to know about Palworld being free-to-play. For more guides just like this one, be sure to check out our Guide Hub.
