Compulsion Games’ We Happy Few has had a very interesting development cycle, with the developer making some big tweaks to the game following its early-access launch. However, the full release is very soon, and now they and publisher Gearbox have released an extensive (and crazy) new gameplay trailer.
This new video is over 5 minutes long, and gives an excellent look at what is in store with this game. Titled Always Be Cheerful: The ABCs of Happiness, the video gives a look at the game’s setting, cast, gameplay and story. There’s something very sinister going on in Wellington Wells, with those running it keeping everyone drugged up to keep them from remembering the past. Why don’t they want everyone remembering the past? Well, you’ll have to play the game to find out.
The developer’s website says that the game is “the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. Set in a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England, you’ll have to blend in with its other inhabitants, who have their own set of not-so-normal rules.”
We Happy Few is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on August 10th. Be sure to check out the new video showing the game off below.
