Is Palworld cross platform? By now you’re probably busy planning which Pal you’re going to tame and capture, and how you’ll use it in battles, to tend to your farm, or help build your base. It looks like there are loads of opportunities to put your Pals to work.

With over 100 Palworld Pals available in Palworld on launch, it’ll take you a while to catch ’em all. Fortunately, you won’t have to go at it alone, with online Palworld multiplayer available for you and up to three friends, or the option to create a dedicated server. But, do you all have to be on the same platform?

Is Palworld cross platform?

No, Palword doesn’t have crossplay, or cross platform functionality at launch. The developer, Pocketpair, has said in a Discord Q&A about whether the game can be played across Xbox and PC, that “not at launch, but we are working to make this a possibility as soon as possible!”

This means that if you want to play Palworld, you’ll have to choose whether to play it on Xbox or PC or have a different save file on each platform, as you cannot transfer your save from one device to the other, nor can you play with friends on other platforms. That said, there is a way to transfer Palworld save data from Game Pass on PC to Steam. There’s little hope right now of a Palworld PS5 release and even less of Palword Switch.

If you’re playing now, then check our full Palworld map for dungeon locations and our console Palworld admin commands. And for characters, here’s a list of all  Palworld Pals and Palworld bosses list.

We’ll be sure to update this guide as soon as we know when crossplay is coming to Palworld. In the meantime, here’s whether you can get Palworld on Game Pass and other games like Pokemon on PC.
