Palworld is out now in Steam Early Access and Xbox Game Pass via Xbox Game Preview. That means it’s finally time for the world to collectively answer the age-old question, “What if Pokemon had guns?” While Palworld is a lot more than that–it also mixes in elements of modern Zelda games and the open-world survival-crafting genre, the main attraction here is the creature collector at the heart of it all.
Use our ever-expanding guides hub to get acquainted with the weird and wide world of Palworld.
