There’s another patch that’s live for Palworld players. 

Developer Pocketpair is doing a great job of responding to player feedback with its updates. The Early Access has been receiving a steady number of bug fixes and improvements. Here are the Palworld update and patch notes for Xbox and Steam. While it’s out on Steam, expect the Xbox version to follow shortly.

Players can look forward to even more bug fixes and additions in the near future and our Palworld roadmap is a good indicator of where they’re heading.

Palworld update and patch notes

Here’s a list of the fixes that you can expect from Palworld update on Steam and on Xbox. They were revealed in an official post on X (formerly Twitter).

Major fixes

  • Fixed an issue where the game would always crash and save data would be corrupted when the total number of Pals captured by the guild reached approximately 7000. 
  • In the previous patch, save data that had already been in this state (for servers, the server’s world data) remained in a broken state that made it impossible to load, but after applying this patch it will be resolved and will load properly.
  • Fixed an issue where some weapons equipped by other players would disappear when a player used a grenade in multiplayer. 
  • Fixed an issue where, although the displayed capture probability increased when the capture power was strengthened with Lifmunk Effigies, the capture probability did not actually increase at all due to an internal processing bug. 
  • Fixed an issue where if a Pal that was manually assigned to a breeding farm went to sleep, it would not wake up forever. 
  • Fixed an issue where no wood would drop when Pal at the base felled a tree.


  • Implemented countermeasures against some cheats and exploits.

While we don’t know the exact measures taken against cheats, the developers released a message on Discord when they sent the previous Palworld 0.1.3 and patch notes. We think this might be the patch they had been referring to.

In other Palworld news, the Pokémon Company released a statement in response to all of the allegations. And PETA has said they want a Vegan guide from developer Pocketpair.
