The game's versatility allows Pals to be used for various purposes, including fighting, working on farms, and even in factories. One of the game's more controversial features includes the option to sell or consume these creatures for survival.

Set in a harsh environment with scarce resources and dangerous poachers, Palworld challenges players to make tough choices for survival. It offers a range of activities from exploring diverse terrains on land, sea, and air using Pals as mounts, to building structures, farming, and automating production through factories.
