Palworld is an open-world, survival/crafting game from Pocketpair that has taken the world by storm since its release. If you’re wondering how the game will run on your system, here are the PC requirements for Palworld, including the game’s file size.

The Pokemon-inspired, third-person survival game Palworld lets players loose in a vast open world packed with a variety of Pals to capture. These creatures assist in all sorts of activities, including resource gathering which is essential for crafting and upgrading your base.

If you’re looking to play the game on PC via Steam or Xbox Game Pass, it’s worth checking how it will run on your system. With this in mind, let’s take a look over the minimum and recommended specs of Palworld, as well as its file size.

Palworld PC file size

If you want to run Palworld on your PC, the first thing you’ll need to do is save up to 40 GB of free space on your drives. Pocketpair stated the game needs an SSD, as its open-world seems to need some extra juice to load up correctly.
