One of the best aspects of Palworld has been the excellent fanbase and community. The community has done a good job creating art and more for the game, while also being generally helpful in sharing tips and tricks with other players. Now Palworld fans are hosting a competition with monetary rewards available to win for a select few.

It’s been a while since we last received a patch for the game, but Pocketpair has shared when the next Palworld update is coming and what it will fix. In addition, we know lots of the content planned to be coming out this year. The roadmap says there will be more bosses, pals, and islands, meanwhile, the partnership with Xbox aims to bring dedicated servers to console.

All of the above is no doubt exciting but we have to be patient for new content to arrive. Fortunately, there’s plenty to enjoy in the game right now to stick with it during early access, and the community is hosting a competition with monetary rewards available to win for a lucky select few.

How to enter and win Palworld competition
