Xbox Made A Custom Palworld Series S Console And You Can Win It

With four custom controllers!

Hot off of the news that Palworld reached over 25 million players – including 10 million on Xbox – in its first month of release, Xbox has revealed a shiny, custom Palworld Series S console in another one of its famous sweepstakes.

The console, which features the game’s key art across its chassis, also comes with (count ’em) four custom Xbox Wireless Controllers each featuring art of one of four Pals: Grizzbolt, Mammorest, Pengullet and Cattiva, as well as a three-month Game Pass Ultimate Code.

As usual, the sweepstakes requires eager entrants to follow the official Xbox X account, and repost the below before March 17th, 2024 – and Aussies are eligible to enter and win. You can find all of the rules, terms and so on here.

Developer Pocketpair is celebrating the enormous milestone of 25 million players in the first month of its release.

That figure includes a whopping 15 million sales of the game on Steam, plus 10 million more players accessing the game on Xbox, further bolstering its record as the biggest 3rd party launch on Game Pass to date. Naturally, it still holds the position of the most-played 3rd party day one release via Xbox Cloud Gaming along with the #2 spot for all-time concurrent player peak on Steam at 2,101,867 players.

For a bit of cheeky context, that’s more players than all but the two best-selling Pokémon releases of all time, with Pokémon Sword/Shield having sold 26 million copies as of September 2023 and the original Red/Green/Blue games notching up over 31 million copies. Naturally, they’re vastly different games and Palworld is being propped up by a cheap price on Steam as well as its Xbox Game Pass inclusion, but it’s an impressive comparison.

Our resident survival game expert, Edward, wrote about his impressions of the game, saying, “If you can wrangle a few mates together for some ‘mon-like’ fun, or if you’re just a grizzled old survivalist like I am, I’d absolutely recommend picking up the game on Steam or jumping in via Game Pass to see for yourself if the hype is real. Go on, use HM03 and ride the Palworld wave that’s sweeping the globe.”
