Palworld fever is in full swing, but some players can’t play multiplayer or load previous saves due to a “Sorry, you’re currently prevented from playing online” error. 

Palworld has plenty of minor bugs but nothing too game-breaking. But some players can’t load previous saves due to a new error. However, they may still create new worlds and enjoy them, but the old history goes off-limit in this new Palward error. Rest assured, the issue is from the game’s end and not yours. The great thing is that it’s fixable. 

The “Sorry, you’re currently prevented from playing online” error in Palworld typically happens when Pocket Pair ships an update. Naturally, the simple solution is to update the game. The issue is more common for Xbox users, but some Steam users have also reported a similar error. Here’s how to fix both.

Palworld error

To fix this error on XBox, simply update Palworld. 

  • Go to the Xbox dashboard and select My Games & Apps menu.
  • Scroll down to Manage and then select Updates
  • If you see the update, you can start the download manually.
  • If you don’t see the update, head back to your Games
  • Press the Options button on Palworld
  • Select Manage Game and add-ons
  • Choose Updates

This should update Palward on Xbox and fix the error. 

PC players shouldn’t encounter this error, as this is specific to Xbox, but in rare cases, players should verify game integrity. 

  1. Go to the Steam game library and find Palworld
  2. Open settings and go to Installed Files
  3. Select Verify integrity of game files
  4. Run Palworld-Win64-Shipping.ex
  5. Launch the game as an administrator

The game should now run smoothly. But if it doesn’t, then the game server is likely down. It’s worth checking the game status before applying more fixes.
