Full patch notes for Palworld's v0.1.4.0 update on Steam

Palworld continues to rise in popularity, with the team announcing last night they hit 19 million sales across Steam and Xbox. Pocketpair recently revealed their Palworld roadmap to show what big features they’re planning on working on in the immediate future, but that doesn’t mean they’re not still working away at the more pressing issues currently facing the game.

A new patch has just been released for Palworld on Steam (and will soon be released on Xbox when it’s ready) featuring a huge array of bug fixes, and we’ll recap all of them for you.

The full patch is 1.2GB in size on Steam, and contains the following bug fixes:

Major Fixes

  • 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.
      We are continuing to work on fixing this issue permanently.

Key Configuration

  • Added support for mouse side keys and numeric keypad in keyboard key configuration.
    • *Further improvements are currently planned, such as support for interact key configuration.

Player Issues

  • Fixed an issue where players on dedicated servers and co-op (online) were receiving damage twice.
  • Specifications have been changed so that you can move at extremely low speed even when you have exceeded the weight limit.
  • Players will no longer pass through walls when dismounting.
  • Fixed an issue where capture power strengthened by Lifmunk Effigies was reset when using memory reset drugs.
  • Fixed an issue where armor could be equipped in the wrong slot.
  • Adjusted camera positions of several Pals to make it easier to see when mounted.

Base Issues

  • Specifications have been changed so that Pals who are manually assigned to a breeding farm will not become hungry and their manual assignments will not be removed.
  • The key to lift Pals has been changed from F → V (Pad: X → Y) in order to prevent accidents.
  • Reduced the speed and range of fire spreading on wooden buildings.
  • Fixed an issue where manual work assignments could not be set at all under certain circumstances.
  • Fixed an issue where extremely high-level Relaxaurus would attack the base during raids.
  • Added several measures to prevent base Pals from getting stuck.
  • Fixed an issue where Pals would get stuck while transporting items and would drop them on the spot.
  • Fixed an issue where Pals at the base would continue to cut down trees that were already cut.
  • Fixed an issue where Pals at the base were on the verge of death due to unexplained falling damage.
  • Fixed an issue where Pals at the base would float under some conditions.
  • Fixed an issue where if a farm was built on the second floor or above, work pals would be unable to move on the floors below.


  • Corrected incorrect text
  • Measures have been added to prevent cheating and stealing other players’ Pals.
  • Many other minor fixes such as the addition of a UI key guide
