However, before you do that, there are a couple of things that you should check first:

Check for Outages:

Sometimes, a game server may go down due to maintenance, and if that happens, you might get this error code:

  • Go to the Xbox Support application from your Xbox Dashboard
  • Click on Xbox Status at the top right of your screen
  • Click on Games & Gaming
  • Make sure Palworld has a green tick next to it.

Check Your Network:

Another possibility here is that the game is working fine, but your network is the culprit. The easiest way to check for the issue is to see if you can get to the Store app on your Xbox.

You should also make sure you have an active Game Pass subscription if you’re playing the game using that service. If your subscription runs out and you don’t own a digital copy of the game, you will face this error code.

Reset Your Xbox Console

Select the Reset Console option and choose the option Reset and Keep My Games & Apps in the following window.

If you choose the Reset and Remove Everything Option, it will also remove all your games and account information. So choose that at your own risk!
