In the statement, Pocketpair reported that it confirmed some connection issues with official servers, which it attributed to the influence of cheaters. The company also affirmed its zero-tolerance policy towards such activities, and it said it is working on dealing with it as a priority.

As part of these countermeasures, the company noted it plans to add player lists and anti-cheat software to Palworld. The player lists feature, which is intended to help identify and ban cheaters, is set to arrive sometime during February 2024, but there is currently no date for the addition of the anti-cheat software.

The success of Palworld has led to developers Pocketpair seeking to take on new staff members to support its plans for the game. Meanwhile, modders have been busy adding their own spins to the game, including an Ironman-style Nuzlocke mode.

Palworld is available in Early Access for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC, as well as on Xbox Game Pass. An update including a Player List function is planned for the end of February, 2024.
