Once Human is entirely free to play on all platforms. In addition, during an interview with WCCFTech at DGC 2024, Derek Quiue, the Head of Overseas Operations for Starry Studio, said there would be no additional pay-to-win elements. However, you can expect monetization systems based around in-game cosmetics that will have no other effect on the game besides visual changes.
