Once Human has been announced for PC through Steam at this point. There are no plans for console releases right now. If the game is a hit, which seems almost inevitable, developers might release the game on consoles. Should this happen, crossplay integration is expected, allowing players from all platforms to play with each other.

Once Human Plot Details

Once Human takes us to a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by a mysterious alien creature called Stardust. The creature can contaminate all living beings and turn them into monsters. To add to your woes, environmental elements can also get infested by Stardust. So, the air you breathe, or the water you drink, might not be safe as well. You will confront several human-turned-monsters as you try to survive in this dystopian scenario. Besides surviving the perils, you need to uncover the mystery behind Stardust to save the world.

Is Once Human Co-Op?

Yes, Once Human is a co-op multiplayer game that you can play together with your friends. The game has only been announced for PC thus far; therefore, there is currently no information available regarding crossplay compatibility.
