When is the next Once Human wipe?

We expect the next Once Human server wipe to occur on Tuesday, August 20, 2024. The current season scenario is “six weeks in length” according to Starry Studio, and this date falls exactly 42 days after the launch of season one.

Starry Studio confirmed Once Human server wipes in a dev blog back in May, saying that “every season introduces a fresh journey where you start anew and experience exclusive seasonal content within a fixed timeframe.

Server wipes often coincide with maintenance as the developers prepare for a new season, so check out the Once Human server status if you have trouble getting back in after the wipe. We anticipate Starry Studio to ameliorate player disruption with Once Human server queue compensation.

How do Once Human server wipes work?

In a Once Human server wipe, you will automatically lose your character, weapons, armor, and resources. Everything you’ve crafted and built within the open-world game’s map will also be erased.

Thankfully, Starry Studio has provided some clarification that players will not lose their in-game progress. “We value the time and effort you put into this game, so the items and gear you have obtained from the seasonal scenario will be retained in various ways,” they say in a Steam news update.

Here is what you will keep after a Once Human server wipe:

  • Currency: Starchroms, Crystgins, Mitsuko’s Marks, Stellar Planula, Sproutlets
  • Gear: Gear blueprints, blueprint fragments, weapon accessories, and mods
  • Furniture: Furniture formulas
  • Character: Cosmetics, expressions, poses, and namecards
  • Building: House blueprints
  • Content: Main story and side story task progress
  • Account: Friends list

It’s also possible to save items from a Once Human server wipe by transferring them to Eternaland, a “home” realm unique to each player. “Essential resources like materials, medicine, and ammunition can be carried over into a new season based on item transferring rules so you can progress faster in the new season,” Starry Studio confirms.

Transferring items costs Material Points, and the amount required varies depending on item type. Thankfully, Material Points refresh each season, so don’t hesitate to spend them all if needed.

A seasonal wipe might come as a blow after weeks spent building your character, but don’t despair – the developer promises “new stories, events, and mechanics” to tackle. We expect the latest seasonal content to present new challenges and Once Human bosses, which demand new abilities, weapons, and deviants to overcome them. You can sign up for the next scenario at the culmination of each season.
