What Palworld Version to Choose?

When choosing between the Steam and Xbox Game Pass versions, you must decide the number of your friends and lobby in multiplayer. You can go for the Steam version if the total number of your friends and you are more than five players. This version will allow you to host a dedicated host server with up to 32 players.
