- Palworld, despite its controversial reputation, has quickly become a top-selling game with over 1 million copies sold on Steam within the first eight hours of release.
- A player discovered a trick to perform a super jump in Palworld by taking advantage of specific game mechanics.
- It remains to be seen whether the developers will patch out this super jump feature or leave it in the game as part of Palworld’s gameplay experience.
Shortly after the launch of Palworld, a player posted a clip of how they were able to make a ridiculously high jump in the game. The Palworld player used specific game mechanics to make the jump and showed others how to do the feat.
Though Palworld remains a controversial game due to the Pokemon comparisons, that has not stopped many gamers from giving it a shot. Despite its status as an early access game at the time of writing, Palworld became one of the top-selling games on Steam, as it sold over one million copies on Valve’s storefront within the first eight hours of going on sale. While Xbox console and Game Pass figures were not disclosed, Palworld had a peak of 855,706 players on Steam and a 93% positive rating, according to SteamDB.
Palworld Devs Had ‘Emergency Meeting’ With Epic Games
Amid its growing popularity, Palworld developers are addressing connectivity issues with the game following a meeting the Epic Games team.
As an open-world game in early access, Palworld is not without its quirks, as proven by one player. On Twitter, a user named @s_vevle posted a 34-second clip of a super jump they were able to pull off in Palworld. This trick can be done early on in the game, and in all versions of the game currently available. In their demonstration, @s_vevle fought a sheep-like critter called Lamball, one of the earliest Pals players can catch in Palworld. With the Lamball weakened, the OP threw a Pal Sphere at it to catch it. Unlike the Poke Balls used in Pokemon, the Pal Spheres are much larger and have collision detection as a game object.
Knowing this, the OP was able to quickly jump up on top of the Pal Sphere as it captured the Lamball by sprinting towards it and grabbing hold. Once the Pal Sphere secured the capture of the Pal, the capture animation hurled the OP’s character sky-high as a result. While falling from such a height would guarantee a quick death, one of Palworld‘s main methods of navigating the early game is a glider that players can craft with wood and cloth. After showing off a midair dance, the OP was able to pull out their glider and float down safely following the Pal Sphere launch. Whether the team at Pocket Pair patches this “super jump” out of Palworld or not remains to be seen.
With astounding sales on Steam and a successful launch on Xbox Game Pass, Palworld has quickly become one of 2024’s top-selling games. Only time will tell how Pocket Pair will build upon the sudden momentum.
Pocket Pair’s Palworld is a creature-collection game set in an open-world. Entering early access on January 19, 2024, the project blends survival, building, farming, monster breeding, and shooter elements.
