The development cycle for Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few has been an interesting one, with the mixed response from the early access release causing the devs to go back to the drawing board in many ways. After many more months of development and tweaking, the game now finally has a firm release date.
Compulsion Games and Gearbox Publishing have announced that We Happy Few will launch on August 10th, with a new story trailer and details being revealed to get everyone hyped. The following is a new overview of the game:
“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 retro-futuristic 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 release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 10th. Be sure to check out the new story trailer below.
