Here is an overview of the game announced in June 2021:
Palworld is a game about living a slow and relaxed happy life with mysterious creatures called “Pal” or throwing yourself into life and death battles with the villainous poachers.
On your adventures in Palworld, you can make friends with friends and explore the big world happily together.
You can sell them, butcher them for food, give them hard labor, loot, rob and wreak utter havoc, but it is entirely up to the players to make adult decisions like these, as the laws of this world prohibit such activities. Just don’t get caught!
- Survival – This world is full of dangers such as food shortages, harsh weather and illegal poachers. You must be prepared to do whatever it takes if you want to survive. You might even have to consume Pals sometimes…
- Riding and exploring – You can effortlessly make them fly, swim, drive, saddle on your back or shoulder, even dig holes somewhere if you want… This way you can explore all sorts of places on land, in the water and in the sky by riding Pals.
- Building – Do you want to build a pyramid? A spaceship? A garden? Maybe just a house? You can get a large number of Pals to work on the construction. Don’t worry, labor laws won’t be applied to friends, feel free to work them into the ground.
- Life – Make your carefree life more comfortable by gathering a number of valuable friends to light fires, generate electricity, water your plants, keep threats away from your camp and mine minerals.
- Agriculture – Different friends are good at different things, such as sowing crops, watering your vegetables, harvesting your produce, cleaning your camp and more. Create attractive farms and orchards with your friends. There are also friends that can duplicate themselves when planted. What will they become? Eat them afterwards and find out!
- Factory and Automation – Automation is essential for your factory production as your life must maintain a happy and carefree style. This is when the friends come to do the manual work for you. Build a factory and place Pals in it. They will work forever as long as they are fed until the end of their life or beaten to a pulp by the factory manager. The worse the factory boss, the faster you get results, or the faster your friends reach their destiny?
- Dungeon Exploration – With Pals you are safe in dangerous areas. If you are in danger, you use Pals to cover your escape! They will give their lives to protect you without thinking twice.
- Breeding and heredity – When you breed Pals, they inherit their parents’ traits. Mix rare species of Pals to raise the strongest Pals to tackle the toughest enemies you’ll find in Palworld!
- Poaching and crime – Endangered species of Pals live in the hunting-prohibited area. If you sneak in and catch them, you’ll get tons of money! It’s only illegal if you get caught.
- Multiplayer – This game supports multiplayer. Invite your friends to go on an adventure together. Of course you can battle and trade with other players!
