Palworld is currently plagued by online cheaters, though developer PocketPair has a plan to take them down.

It’s no secret Palworld has been a huge success so far. Despite fears Nintendo would take the game down for its similarities to the Pokemon franchise, fans have had a great time catching the virtual critters and equipping them with a variety of guns, which never fails to be comical.

So far the game has become one of the biggest releases on Steam, as well as the third biggest Xbox Game Pass launch so far. Xbox will be working much more closely with Palworld moving forward to bring the Xbox version up to the same standard as the PC version.

However while fans have a lot to look forward to, there is a mammorest in the room, online cheaters.

The game has reportedly been plagued with players using cheats that have started to affect online servers, and PocketPair plans to crackdown on the problem in the next few weeks.

In a statement the developer said: "Currently, some users are unable to connect to official servers due to cheating and the influence of fraudulent activities … As a company, we do not tolerate any fraudulent activity or cheating, and we are working on measures to deal with it strictly and as a priority."

The statement continued: "First of all, we plan to release a player list function for servers in an update at the end of February. Through this, we will strengthen the identification of players who engage in cheating and the suspension of their use by the development team.”

One of the major features on the way for the game through post-launch support is a PvP mode, so online cheaters will need to be removed before that’s introduced to ensure a fair, and enjoyable experience for the majority of players.

Regardless of how long it takes, it’s a comfort to know it's on the developer’s radar, and action is being taken.
