There’s simply one thing a few cute, fluffy sheep working a machine gun, an lovely cartoon dinosaur raining down missiles, and dozens of unhappy Pokémon-ish critters compelled into labor camps to construct weapons, all set to vibrant and cheery music. It all the time makes me marvel: Is that this game okay?

This game is Palworld, an open world creature amassing game that is additionally a third-person shooter. And people aren’t the one ones with weapons: the creatures themselves can spray the world with red-hot lead, too. As you possibly can see within the new Palworld trailer above, it is all fairly unhinged! However on the similar time, I dunno, it additionally appears kinda enjoyable.

We’ll discover out if it is enjoyable in January of 2024, when Palworld enters early entry. “Craft a comfy homestead, construct a mighty base and a Pal-powered manufacturing unit, or dive into dungeons with the help of Buddies’ weapon-wielding particular talents,” says developer Pocketpair. “Embark on legendary monster hunts solo or invite buddies for a multiplayer journey.”

However that is not all you are able to do together with your Pal assortment. “Capturing them, elevating them, preventing with them, forcing them to work, promoting them off, slaughtering them for meals; you are able to do many actions with Buddies within the huge world of Palworld,” says Pocketpair. 

So after you catch ’em all… eat ’em all? I am undecided I’ve ever thought of consuming a critter that appears like Pikachu, however then once more, possibly if there is a good, sturdy recipe e book in Palworld I will give it a attempt. To whet your urge for food, here is the game’s web page on Steam.
