Is Palworld free-to-play?

No, Palworld is not a free-to-play game. If you want to play this bizarre Pokemon-esque game where the creatures have guns, you’ll need to pay $29.99 on Steam for the experience. You should also note that this is its early access price, and it may rise in cost once the full game is released.

It will, however, be free to those who subscribe to Xbox Game Pass on PC or an Xbox console. Of course, you’re paying a monthly subscription fee for the service, but Palworld is available at launch on Game Pass, so if you have an active subscription and want to try it out without paying the $30 price tag, you can.
