Palworld developer Pocketpair wants you to know it's been hard at work developing some "long-awaited features" that we "don't want to miss".

In a statement posted to social media, the Palworld team teased that the viral game will be stopping by at next month's Summer Game Fest with "a LOT of exciting things to reveal".
