Compulsion Games and Gearbox Publishing are excited to announce that We Happy Few will be released on August 10, 2018 for Xbox One, Xbox One X (with HDR and 4K support), PC, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®4 Pro (with HDR and 4K support).
Featuring an additional 20+ hours of narrative-driven gameplay, players will play as three uniquely flawed characters coming to terms with their past and uncovering the secrets of Wellington Wells, an island off the coast of England that seems to have been cut off from the rest of the world after World War II.
Set in retrofuturistic 1960s England, players will find a city ravaged by war and rebuilt by delusionally happy people. Everything appears joyful in Wellington Wells, including its roads, its people, and its omnipresent television personality: Uncle Jack! But, it’s actually a world on the brink of collapse. Unveil its dark history, and discover how and why its residents came to be so beguilingly happy.
We Happy Few will be available on August 10, 2018 for Xbox One, Xbox One X (with HDR and 4K support), PC, PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®4 Pro (with HDR and 4K support) for the suggested retail price of $59.99 USD / £49.99 GBP / €69.99 EUR.
About We Happy Few
We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial in the city of Wellington Wells. In this alternative 1960s England, conformity is key. You’ll have to fight or blend in with the drug-addled inhabitants, most of whom don’t take kindly to people who won’t abide by their not-so-normal rules. Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, as they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in the artificially enthused society.
