New Palworld update comes with a warning – Patch notes for April update on Xbox and Steam | Gaming | Entertainment


Palworld has been given a big new update on Xbox consoles and PC via Steam. The latest Palworld update introduces the game’s very first Raid boss, which is something fans have been looking forward to since launch. As you can see from the patch notes further down the page, players can summon Raid Boss Pals by using slabs at the new Summoning Altar. The bosses are powerful Pals that can’t be captured, although you will receive Eggs if you manage to defeat them. There’s even an extreme version of the Raid battles, which are described as incredibly powerful and difficult to defeat. Elsewhere, the April Palworld update adds a variety of new items and abilities, including Training Manuals that can be used to give experience points to Pals. Unfortunately, however, it’s not all good news, because the new update does come with a warning to players experiencing issues with the game.

In a post on X, Palworld developer Pocketpair acknowledged a bug that has been discovered since the launch of the latest update.

According to Pocketpair, some players are experiencing an issue with eggs that can’t be placed in incubators.

“After the v0.2.0.6 update, it has been reported that there is an issue where eggs cannot be placed inside the incubator. We apologise for this inconvenience,” reads a Pocketpair post.

Anybody experiencing this issue has been told that the problem can be resolved simply by rebuilding the incubator.

Needless to say, the latest Palworld update also makes a ton of gameplay tweaks, balance adjustments and bug fixes, which you can see by checking out the patch notes below.
