The year’s first runaway hit continues to dominate. That’s right, I’m talking about Palworld. Dubbed ‘Pokémon with guns’, PocketPair’s survival-crafting adventure has surpassed yet another impressive sales milestone.
In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few days, Palworld entered early access last Friday, on 19 January, on both PC and Xbox. It quickly garnered positive reviews from critics and players alike. GAMINGbible’s very own Dan wrote, “It’s astonishing how much has been packed into Palworld given its Early Access status. Sure, the developers will probably expand the world, add in more Pals, and grow the story, too. But what we have here is already great, and features so many small details that you’ll be amazed at what you discover. It’s a little rough around the edges in places, but the blueprint and starting product are more than enough to keep you going.”
Take a look at Palworld in action below.
It’s not all been sunshine and rainbows though. Palworld’s developers have been accused of utilising AI and plagiarising Pokémon although there remains no concrete evidence at this point in time. Regardless, I’d imagine PocketPair are well and truly celebrating now given that the game has just surpassed a whopping 7,000,000 downloads.
The team took to the official Palworld Twitter account to share the news, writing, “Palworld has sold over 7 million copies in only five days! Thank you very much! We continue to be hard at work addressing the issues and bugs some users are experiencing. Thanks for your support.” These kinds of announcements are an almost a daily recurrence at this point. I fully anticipate that Palworld will surpass 10,000,000 by the end of the week. People just cannot seem to resist jumping in.
