Friends, fun, and gatling guns.

The upcoming action-adventure game Palworld has garnered plenty of interest since it was revealed, and the release date has now been confirmed.

Palworld might look familiar to some avid gamers since it looks and plays similar to Pokémon, but with one big catch: The creatures in the game can also wield rocket launchers and machine guns.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting news ever since it was confirmed that Palworld would release in January 2024, and a precise date has now been shared for Pocket Pair’s title.

Palworld will be released on Jan. 19, 2024, after the official release date was shared in a new trailer that was released on Tuesday, Jan. 9.

The developer has also said that the game will be released in an early access state, which means that not all the planned features will be available at launch. It will remain in early access for at least a year, so any glitches and other issues can be ironed out before the official release. The official release does not have a solidified date.

“During early access, we will update the game based on the roadmap, actively adding content and improving the game systems,” the developer said on Palworld‘s Steam page. “Depending on the progress of development, we may consider extending early access or if we are satisfied with the state of the game, officially releasing the game.”

Even though the game will be in early access, there should still be enough features to keep players entertained. There will supposedly be more than 100 monsters, over 350 items, 70 types of buildings to create, and an open world to discover.
