In a twist that left everyone bewildered, Palworld emerged as the unforeseen behemoth of 2024. What started as a playful concept - Pokemon with guns, a humorous mashup - has evolved into something far grander. Palworld has conquered Steam, surpassing the likes of Cyberpunk 2077, Elden Ring, and even Counter-Strike 2, and now it has stormed into Xbox Game Pass, becoming the platform's biggest third-party game to date. With its insatiable rise to dominance, Palworld's reign has only just begun.
A Whirlwind of Success:
Not content with steamrolling Steam, Palworld has now shattered records on Xbox Game Pass, solidifying its position as the most popular third-party launch in the subscription service's history. Despite being an early access "preview" of what's to come, Palworld has attracted a staggering seven million players on Game Pass alone, with over three million active users daily on Xbox. To put that into perspective, it surpasses the populations of Singapore, Denmark, and Jamaica. Not too shabby, if I say so myself.
Unleashing the Pal-emon:
PocketPair CEO Takuro Mizobe humbly acknowledges that this is just the beginning for Palworld, expressing awe at the tremendous response from fans worldwide. And count me among those enthralled players. I've spent entire weekends constructing my base and capturing countless Palworld Pals to complete my Paldex. It's been an absolute blast and easily the most enjoyable gaming experience I've had in ages. Move aside, League of Legends Season 14, and forget the grind; I aspire to be the greatest Pal Tamer, the very best, like no one ever was - wait, wrong franchise.
