Palworld has continued to smash records, and it has now become the number 2 on Steam for the record of peak-players as it crosses 7 million sales. There's also now a fancy roadmap.
It only recently jumped over Counter-Strike 2 for currently online players, but now it has also rocketed past CS2 on the record of peak-players overall with 1,864,421 versus CS2's all-time peak of 1,818,773 giving it the true number 2 spot on Steam which you can see on SteamDB. Absolutely incredible numbers for a brand new Early Access game.
A new roadmap has also been shared by the developer on X:

Check out my previous Steam Deck video on Palworld below:
There's also already a Steam Deck performance mod available, although it does reduce the visual quality a lot and it's already not especially great visually on Steam Deck to get it around 30FPS. It currently has a Steam Deck Playable rating and works just fine on Desktop Linux with Proton.
Palworld is available on Steam.
