Does Palworld have multiplayer?

Palworld does have multiplayer; you can play with up to three friends by starting a multiplayer game and inviting them. It’s essentially a four-player co-op game where you can trade Pals and explore the world together.

If there are more than four of you, you can start a dedicated server that can have up to 32 players in the world. Developer Pocketpair has said it is planning on increasing the player limit in a future update.
