Troubleshooting in Multiplayer

As Palworld is in Early Access, expect some quirks along the way, such as non-functioning features or getting stuck in the game world. Should these issues arise, a game restart is often your best bet. Your feedback is invaluable during this phase, so don't hesitate to report bugs via the contact information provided in the game.

This guide aims to make your Palworld multiplayer experience as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Whether you're teaming up with friends in Co-op mode or joining the bustling community on a Dedicated Server, adventure awaits at every corner. Welcome to Palworld, and happy adventuring!


When we started playing online games with our friends, we knew we needed a good game server. But finding one that delivered what gaming communities need was harder than we thought. That's why we decided to start our own game server network.
