Palworld's Roadmap for Future Content Looks Very Promising
Palworld has received a mixed reception since its Early Access launch on Steam and Xbox Game Pass. The game's blend of monster capture, crafting, survival, and moral ambiguity has been praised for its originality. Players can befriend, tame, and even hunt the game's various creatures, called Pals, using a variety of weapons and traps. The developers have laid out a roadmap for future content updates and if you are playing the game, there's a lot to be excited about.

Some players have found the gameplay to be grindy and repetitive, especially in the early hours. Taming Pals and gathering resources can take a lot of time, and the combat system can feel clunky at times. Progression is yet to be addressed by the developers but we can expect some fine tuning in future updates.
The game has also been plagued by performance issues, including frame rate drops, stuttering, and crashes. These issues can be especially frustrating during boss fights or when exploring busy areas. We can expect performance to get better as the developers have promised performance fixes for the game in future updates.
Overall, Palworld is a promising game with a lot of potential. However, its performance issues and server problems can leave a lot to be desired. If you're looking for a unique and challenging monster capture RPG, Palworld is worth checking out. But be prepared to deal with some technical issues but when they are fixed, you can expect a great survival RPG experience.
