In just two weeks since its January 18 debut, Palworld has secured its place as Steam’s top game, boasting a staggering 1.3 million concurrent players. This multiplayer survival sensation has outshined heavyweights like CS2, Dota 2, PUBG Battlegrounds, and Apex Legends, maintaining its dominance longer than expected.

Notably, it has also claimed the title of the #1 most-played game on Xbox Game Pass, with a third of its player base residing there. Pocketpair, the brains behind the game, recently announced a whopping 19 million players within the first two weeks, with 7 million on Game Pass alone. Microsoft has pledged additional support to help manage updates, fixes, and optimizations for the game.
