Trailer PC PS4 Xbox One

The promising title We Happy Few from Compulsion Games announced back in early 2015 will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on April 13th 2018 and also at retail (with a Collector's Set available too) thanks to a partnership with Gearbox Publishing. The title features a full-length story campaign with three different characters. Owners of the Early Access/Game Preview version will get the full game at no extra cost obviously. And for those early adopters, a new update entitled "Life in Technicolour" is available. Take a joy pill and jump inside for more details, new screens and trailers.



We Happy Few Reaching Grander Vision, Coming to Retail on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation®4 April 13, 2018
Full-length story campaign, three playable characters, and more than 250 unique encounters expand upon the game’s initial debut

Frisco, Texas - August 16, 2017/ Gearbox Publishing has partnered with Compulsion Games to take We Happy Few, the eerie adventure about survival and paranoia, to new heights. On April 13, 2018, We Happy Few will launch worldwide with more content than ever―including a full-length story campaign played as three different characters and more than 250 unique encounters―realizing a much grander vision for the game. We Happy Few will be available both digitally and at retail for Xbox One, Windows 10 Store, PC, and PlayStation®4. Compulsion Games continues to retain all creative control over We Happy Few as it evolves from a crowdfunding digital success to a worldwide multi-platform retail launch.

Early Access and Game Preview Program owners of We Happy Few have been able to explore a portion of the procedurally generated world, collect and craft items, and interact with the Joy-obsessed society of Wellington Wells through stealth, combat, and conformity. When the game launches in full with the help of Gearbox Publishing, players will experience how these improved mechanics come together and give rise to three protagonists, each with their own reason for giving up artificial happiness.

Each of these three playable characters has their own particular strengths―and their own dark secrets. As they attempt to survive encounters with their drug-addled former neighbors, old friends, ex-lovers, and even each other, they may dig up some long-buried secrets of Wellington Wells itself.

"Our team was humbled by the initial public reception to We Happy Few, and delighted to have this chance to make it bigger. We’re longtime fans of Borderlands, and we’re excited to be part of a line-up that also includes games like Homeworld and Fortnite. Gearbox believed in us from the very beginning, and we think this partnership will make it possible to create the game that our community expects," said Guillaume Provost, Studio Head of Compulsion Games

“Compulsion Games has an amazing game vision and it’s an honor for Gearbox Publishing to contribute to the effort,” said Steve Gibson, Head of Gearbox Publishing.

Pre-order your digital or physical copy of We Happy Few for $59.99, with a 15% discount at participating retailers, and receive the in-game Jolly Brolly parasol weapon. Microsoft Store, Steam, GOG.com, and Humble Store customers will also gain access to the alpha version of the game at the time of pre-order. Windows 10 Store customers will also gain access to the alpha version when it is available for pre-order this fall. PlayStation®Store customers will receive an exclusive theme. Early Access and Game Preview Program owners of We Happy Few will receive the full game on April 13, 2018 at no extra cost.

The limited We Happy Few Collector’s Set, priced at $149.99, contains 60s-themed goodies like a replica Bobby mask, “You Look Smashing” Lamp, the We Happy Few soundtrack on vinyl, a Joy alarm clock, and more. It does not include a copy of the game so that Early Access players can purchase it separately.

Life in Technicolour Update

Today marks the release of the major Life in Technicolour update on Steam and Xbox One. Life in Technicolour brings new Joy effects, improved user interface, reworked AI, and more. This is the final major update We Happy Few will receive while in Early Access as Compulsion Games sets its sights on the full release.
