Palworld System Specs and PC Requirements

While the development process is still underway, the team at developer PocketPair has detailed the minimum and recommended specs to run Palworld on PC when it enters EA this month.

Based on the outline on Steam, it looks like most systems will be able to handle it without issue.

Whether you’re working with a low- or high-end PC, you’ll need at least a 64-bit processor and operating system to run the game. Moreover, a steady internet connection is necessary to enable multiplayer support at launch.

Despite the myriad features on offer in Palworld, I’m glad to see that running the game won’t call for my setup to meet impossibly high requirements.

In all honesty, this comes as a bit of a surprise to me, especially considering just how much developer and publisher PocketPair has managed to pack into the game thus far.

After all, over 100 different Pals are set to appear in the new title, which pulls elements from several genres to create a thrilling and varied gameplay experience — albeit not entirely original.

With this in mind, I’m eager to see how well the game will run third-person shooter, multiplayer, and mount features throughout its EA period, which is planned to span at least a year.

For now, these are the working system requirements for Palworld on PC. Sit tight for more news and tips as we near its EA launch.
