When writing this guide, There is no dedicated server support in Once Human. So if you were looking forward to creating and maintaining your own server with different rules and settings, unfortunately you won’t be able to do so as the game functions more like an MMO than other survival games like Rust or DayZ.

At the start of the game, you can choose between PvP and PvE game servers that you can join according to your preferences to start your game. Just keep in mind that progress between servers is not shared.

So if you change servers, you will have to start over, although your progress on the old server will remain intact. You can switch back to it at any time, as no progress is erased.

To avoid server congestion, each Once Human server is divided into multiple worlds, which you can easily switch between in-game. Unlike switching servers, if you switch worlds within the same server, except for your base, you can also move using the Move Territory function; everything else remains intact.

In simple terms, there is no loss of progress. So, if you want to play the game with your friends, just make sure to join the same server as them, because since there is no dedicated server support, creating a new unique server just for your group is out of the question.

That being said, eventually, if Once Human gets dedicated server support, which to be honest seems highly unlikely given the structure of the game, we will update this guide.
