Game Overview

Once Human is a New weird survival game. Players need to survive in the wilderness and try to fight against the aberrant monsters.

Game Background Story

After the mysterious silver door opened, the catastrophe came to this world. Human civilization has fallen in the invasion of Stardust pollution and abnormal forms. For 30 years, human beings have been struggling to survive in the mud. Until... You wake up. Some extraordinary people called "Beyonders" have appeared in this last world. Starting from the desolation, you have accumulated little by little the resources for survival, healed the land polluted by Stardust inch by inch, and recaptured one by one the sites of human civilization occupied by deformities.

Most of the land, under the pollution of Stardust, has become a wild area which is difficult to be used by human beings, and is spread all over the teratogens and dangerous creatures. The Stardust catastrophe has spawned countless monsters, which have occupied almost the whole world. We must recover the homeland of mankind from them! Although the metamorphosis has always regarded humans as prey, now, Beyonder, we have you... It's time for you to become a hunter.

What is the truth of the catastrophe? Is there any secret to the complete cure of dust pollution in the mysterious Rosetta base? To know this, it is not enough to rely on one person's strength. You need to gather all those who share the same ideals to explore the mysteries of destruction and evolution.
