In the realm of gaming wonders, Palworld has soared to new heights since its early access launch on January 19. This survival sensation, featuring gun-toting, off-brand Pokémon, has taken the world by storm, selling a staggering two million copies in just one day. Not only that, but it achieved a mind-boggling concurrent player count of 200,000 within hours. And the numbers continue to skyrocket. In fact, the peak player count has quadrupled in a mere day and currently stands at an estimated 815,000, according to the reliable folks over at Steam Database.
Now, it's important to note that these jaw-dropping figures don't even include Pals logging in on Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, or the Epic Games Store. Even without accounting for those platforms, Palworld's dark twist on the monster-taming subgenre has managed to captivate hordes of players, creating a buzz that's hard to ignore.
"Incredible!" exclaimed developer Pocketpair in a social media announcement. They couldn't help but marvel at the unstoppable momentum Palworld has gained. Accompanying their words was an image showcasing Steam's all-time top ten concurrent player peaks. And guess what? Palworld has already claimed the tenth spot on that illustrious chart, sitting just behind last year's record-breaking juggernaut, Baldur's Gate 3, with its peak of 875,000 players. Talk about rubbing shoulders with the titans of gaming!
Prepare for Palworld's numbers to reach even greater heights throughout the weekend. It's as if the peak player count jumps up a few thousand with every refresh of the Steam Database estimates. The world of Palworld, where players engage in black market human organ trading and strive to catch all the Pals, is an irresistible invitation that many are eager to accept.
With such an overwhelming influx of players, it's no surprise that the servers experienced their fair share of strain and buckling within the past day. Connectivity issues were a common hurdle, causing frustration for adventurers in this dark and twisted realm. However, fear not! Pocketpair took to social media to assure players that connectivity problems should be resolved when hosting co-op games on Xbox and Steam. They are working tirelessly to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all.
As if that weren't enough, the resourceful developers at Pocketpair even had an "emergency meeting with Epic Games" to update the backend of their storefront. This means that connectivity issues should soon become a thing of the past, if they haven't already. It's a testament to the dedication and commitment of the team, who are determined to provide players with the best possible experience.
