So you can rebuild them somewhere else!
If you're playing Palworld and you've decided you want to destroy a building or move it somewhere else, it's actually not as difficult as it seems!

Here's how to activate it
You might have seen conflicting reports about whether Palworld supports cross platform play between Xbox and PC or not, and we're here to tell you the answer is "yes" - as long as you're playing on Xbox and the Xbox PC app. In other words, Steam doesn't work with this feature just yet (it's hopefully coming down the line),...

We've got some GOTY candidates amongst them
January has always typically been a quiet time for new Xbox releases, but last year broke the mould with some major arrivals such as Hi-Fi RUSH and GoldenEye 007, and somehow January 2024 has surpassed expectations once again. Specifically, we want to highlight six games that have all arrived in excellent...
Fight, farm, build and work alongside mysterious creatures called "Pals" in this completely new multiplayer, open world survival and crafting game!
In a harsh environment where food is scarce and vicious poachers roam, danger waits around every corner. To survive, you must tread carefully and make difficult choices...even if that means eating your own Pals when the time comes.
Mounts & Exploration
Pals can be mounted to traverse the land, sea and sky—allowing you to traverse all kinds of environment as you explore the world.
Want to build a pyramid? Put an army of Pals on the job. Don't worry; there are no labor laws for Pals.
Make use of Pals and their skills to make fire, generate electricity, or mine ore so that you can live a life of comfort.
Some Pals are good at planting seeds, while others are skilled at watering or harvesting crops. Work together with your Pals to create an idyllic farmstead.
Factories & Automation
Letting Pals do the work is the key to automation. Build a factory, place a Pal in it, and they'll keep working as long as they're fed—until they're dead, that is.
With Pals on your side you can tackle even the most dangerous areas. When the time comes, you might have to sacrifice one to save your skin. They'll protect your life—even if it costs their own.
Breeding & Genetics
Breed a Pal and it will inherit the characteristics of its parents. Combine rare pals to create the strongest Pal of them all!
Poaching & Crime
Endangered Pals live in wildlife sanctuaries. Sneak in and capture rare Pals to get rich quick! It's not a crime if you don't get caught, after all.
Multiplayer is supported, so invite a friend and go on an adventure together! And of course you can battle your friends and trade Pals, too.
In online co-op play mode, up to 4 players can play together.
Additionally, a dedicated server can allow up to 32 players to play together.
Note: PvP will be implemented in a future update.
Note: The maximum number of players playable on the same server will also be increased in a future update.
