Palworld has released Patch, addressing Pal AI, incrementing measures against cheating, and accidentally fixing a bug with the tower boss. Alongside, the Palworld update also introduced a plethora of significant improvements and fixes to enhance the gaming experience.

Palworld, developed by Pocket Pair, is an action-adventure game where players capture and use animal-like creatures called “Pals” for tasks like combat and base building. Launched in January 2024 for Windows and Xbox platforms, Palworld quickly became a hit, selling over 7 million copies in five days. Combining survival mechanics with monster-taming elements, Palworld offers solo and multiplayer modes. Players manage hunger, craft tools, and build bases while engaging in combat and capturing Pals, each with unique abilities useful for various tasks and challenges on the Palpagos Islands.

A Palworld player discovers a secret room hidden beneath the game’s playable map while exploring, choosing to build a new base inside.

One of the most notable additions in update is the implementation of a backup feature for save data on the world selection screen, ensuring that players’ progress is safeguarded against unexpected mishaps or data loss while playing Palworld. Additionally, the patch addresses the accumulation of unnecessary data in save files, optimizing performance and stability. Key configurations have been refined with the inclusion of fully supported keyboard key customization. Furthermore, modifications to guild mechanics now permit the removal of guild members even when they are offline, offering greater flexibility in managing player interactions.

One of Palworld‘s key elements is its different kind of Pals and how players interact with them; hence, numerous adjustments have been made to player and Pal behaviors, including refining long-press operations during tasks and improving Pal AI to enable more aggressive combat tactics. Notably, a bug that caused bosses to become stuck in walls after being targeted by certain partner skills has also been rectified. Additionally, Palworld’s developer said on Twitter that as a result of various fixes, a bug that allowed players to capture the tower boss was unintentionally fixed too.

Palworld‘s base-related issues have also been addressed, with fixes implemented to prevent Pal entities from getting stuck in various environments and optimizing Pal behavior during transportation tasks. Building restrictions have been relaxed for stairs and roofs, providing players with greater freedom in constructing their bases and structures. Furthermore, balance adjustments, network renovations, and measures against cheating in Palworld have been implemented to ensure a fair and engaging gameplay experience for all players.

The update also tackled balance adjustments, network-related enhancements, and various minor issues. As Palworld continues to evolve and refine through player feedback and community engagement, patch is out now, and fans can already enjoy the improvements it brought.
