Palworld is an online game described as Pokemon with guns. And it has sold more than four million copies in three days.
Palworld said on Twitter that the game’s momentum has increased since yesterday, with the latest sales at 86,000 units per hour.
The game launched on January 19 and it rose to the top of Steam’s best-selling games list. It overtook PUBG in terms of concurrent players. The game is also available on the Windows PC via Game Pass and Xbox.
It’s an open world survival crafting game for up to 32 players. It has more than 100 types of pals. You capture, train, battle or put your pals to work. The developers at Pocketpair spent three years making the game. The game had some outages over the weekend due to the demand, and Pocketpair met with Epic Games to resolve issues.
