Verify Your In-game Files

  • Open up Steam and find the Games and Software tab on the left hand of the program.
  • From your game library, locate Palworld and right-click on it and select “Properties.”
  • From the menu that opens up, click on “Installed Files” and then proceed to select the “Verify integrity of game files” option at the bottom of the window.
  • It will take some minutes for Steam to verify the in-game files. And once you’re done, start Palworld again and see if the issue still persists, this is a method that might help fix the error which has been plaguing many users since the launch of the game.

Update The Game

  • Under Gaming and software, head to your library
  • Locate Palworld and right click on it,
  • Turn on “always keep this game updated’ if you haven’t already
  • Turning on Automatic updates will ensure your game is automatically updated all the time without the hassle of manually updating the game whenever a new patch is released.

Restart your Router

  • Close Palworld
  • Turn off your WiFi router
  • Turn it back on and reconnect your PC to the WiFi network again
  • Open Palworld and check if you encounter the error again

If everything else fails, you might want to just create a new world in the game entirely. However, it is not an ideal method to just lose all your in-game progress just because of this bug. This is a last resort and only recommended if you’ve followed every single thing specified in this list.

The game is currently in ‘early access’, and has already amassed a large player count, way more than many full releases have. The game is set to remain in the early access stage for about 10 to 12 months, until PocketPair feels it is ready for a full fledged 1.0 release. But being in early access, there are already a million copies and counting for player sold on Steam.
