Palworld has been met with extreme success since its release, but that also means that the servers have been taking a bit of a hit at times. This guide will take you through how to check the server status for Palworld. 

Palworld has seen most of its success on Steam, with over 1.85 million concurrent players at one time earlier in January 2024. That number is still growing, and while Pocketpair are making changes to fight server issues, they are sometimes still coming up for players. 

Pocketpair is not a big studio, so for the time being, you may need to be a bit patient with servers being down from time to time. Here is how to check the server status for Palworld. 

Is Palworld down right now?

At the time of writing, Palworld is not experiencing any server issues and the servers are running.

Pocketpair have been vocal about the issues and reports they’ve received concerning bugs and crashes in Palworld, the last being on January 22 when they had over 50,000 inquiries from players. 

On January 24, Pocketpair shared a Roadmap for Palworld updates and what players can expect in the coming months. 

In a post on X, Pocketpair said, “Sales have far exceeded the development team’s expectations, and we are currently experiencing many problems due to excessive access congestion, among other challenges.”

“We will prioritize improving this issue first, and then move on to implementing new in-game features.”

Palworld social channels are the best way to check the server status of the game

Pocketpair is on X and Facebook, and they also have a Discord server which you can join to get updates and chat directly with the devs. 

The official Palworld X page is updated frequently, so we suggest making that your first port of call when looking for server status updates. Otherwise, Pocketpair have been quite vocal on all their social media sites, so you can trust they will update you as soon as they can about server updates. 

Alternatively, you can also check out the Palworld Server Status page for updates on server issues.
