Palworld developer Pocketpair says it has now resolved the connectivity issue that was preventing some players from hosting co-op play.
The team explained on social media that due to Palworld exceeding 700,000 concurrent players, it had to hold an “emergency meeting” with Epic Games “to add an update to the Epic Games backend.”
“Regarding connectivity issues when trying to host co-op: Player count exceeded 700,000 concurrent players, and an issue occurred in the Epic Games backend,” the team explained on X/Twitter.
“We held an emergency meeting with the Epic Games team and asked them to add an update to the Epic Games backend at short notice.

Survival game “Pokémon with Guns” Palworld has sold a staggering million copies just hours after its Early Access launch on Steam and Xbox Series X/S yesterday, January 19. It now sits in 11th place on Steam's “Most Played Games” chart with 663,320 concurrent players on Steam alone, which is more than even big hitters like Apex Legends, the viral hit Among Us, and Valheim.
