Once Human is a multiplayer open-world survival that lets you team up with friends to fight off twisted monstrosities warped by the alien Stardust, explore a ravaged environment, and craft your way to prevail in a world reborn. The full game launches globally on July 9th, 2024, but a limited-time demo is available until June 17th, 2024. However, some players have encountered issues with it. If you're experiencing a download stuck at "File is being verified", keep reading to find out what to do.

How to Deal with Once Human Download Stuck at File is Being Verified

If your Once Human Demo download is stuck at 0% with a massage “File is being verified”, here’s what may help:

  1. Temporarily Disable Security Software: Sometimes security software like ad blockers (including Pi-hole) or firewalls can interfere with downloads. Try pausing them only while the Once Human demo downloads. But remember that disabling security software can leave your PC vulnerable and you are doing it at your own risk. Only do this for the download and re-enable it as soon as possible.
  2. Background Programs: Close any unnecessary programs running in the background that might be consuming bandwidth.

If the above steps don't resolve the issue, just be patient. Downloads can sometimes appear stuck but are still progressing slowly. Give it some time, especially if you have a slow internet connection. Make sure your internet connection is stable. You can try running a speed test online or restarting your router.
