The devs at Pocketpair are continuing not to rest on their laurels of huge sales and player counts and are continuing to fix up the Early Access version of the game, much to the chagrin of those who thought it was just going to turn out to be one massive meme.
With the latest patch, the Steam version has been patched up to 0.1.4.0, whereas, more annoying for Xbox Game Pass players, their version, which lags behind the paid-for Steam version only gets an “Xbox version 0.1.1.3 will be released as soon as it is ready.”, in a post on the official Palworld account on X.
What’s changed in the latest Palworld patch?
So, concentrating on what’s been fixed for the Steam version Pocketpair has fixed some crash events that were causing instability for players and stopped an issue where enemy pals might get stuck in the scenery after charging.
Another major fix stops the save data from getting corrupted when a guild’s total pal count for to around 7,000. It’s important to note, however, that if you already have a corrupted save, then this patch will not save it.
There is an absolute ton of changes so we will leave the full patch notes below. After the last patch which basically said pretty much, “fixed some stuff” it’s nice to have a list of what’s been worked on this time around.
Palworld 0.1.4.0 Patch notes
・Fixed an issue where the game would crash under certain conditions
・Fixed an issue where if another player’s pal/base pal had HP 30% or less, it could be captured by using a sphere.
・Fixed an issue where enemy pals would get stuck in walls due to charge attacks.
・Implemented the first fix for an issue where the game would always crash and save data would be corrupted when the guild’s total number of pals captured reached around 7000.
*The game no longer crashes even if the total number of captured objects exceeds 7000.
However, save data that has already been in this state (in the case of a server, the server’s world data) prior to this update will still be unable to load.
