Pocketpair have released a small yet important update for it’s hit new survival game, Palworld.
The developers state that they have fixed the infinite loading screen bug which was bugging many of its users, while fixing various ‘incorrect text”. The patch includes more bug fixes than listed on the official patch notes blog post, as the developer team is working on countering the increasing amount of cheaters and glitch exploiters.
“Currently, some players have been confirmed to be cheating on the official server,” revealed the Pocketpair earlier during the day. “We will apply a patch as soon as it is ready, but it is currently difficult to completely prevent all cheating immediately.” Palworld has hit 2 million concurrent players on Steam, and the overwhelming amount of popularity has caused some issues for the developers.
Pocketpair added, “We will continue to focus even more on security and aim to create an environment where everyone can play with peace of mind. We sincerely apologize to all players who have been affected by this incident.”
“We will continue to place top priority on fixing major issues. Thank you for your continued support of Palworld.” added the developer in their social media patch notes post.
