Once your friend’s name shows up beneath the search bar, use a + sign next to their name, which will send them a friend request. When the request is accepted, the friend will be added to your in-game friend list.

Alternatively, you can add Friends by standing next to them. This method is a little simpler, but it requires that a player that you want to add as a friend is standing right next to you. Approach the player in question and press the Z button. This will open up their “menu”, where you have some options concerning that player, and there you will see the Add Friend button. Once you do so, you will get more friend-related options, like Trade and so on.

How to Create a Party in Once Human

After players finish with the tutorial, they will land in the hostile open world of Once Human. Moreover, now they will be able to form parties with their friend and take on the challenges of the game together. However, before creating a party, there are some requirements players need to meet.

All players need to be on the same server, so make sure that a server type is chosen before starting the game. Although players can change worlds on the same server, they all need to be on the same server to create a party.

Once all the players are on the same server, they can create a party, or in this case, a Hive. Moreover, Hives can contain up to four players and can be created using the Social Menu, mentioned above. To add players to your Hive, simply use your friends list or search for specific players using a search bar. Additionally, as the game progresses, players will be able to bring more people to their party. Eventually, they will be able to create a Warband, which consists of six Hives.
