Today, Compulsion Games showed off new We Happy Few gameplay on Inside Xbox. According to the studio, the game 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 alternate England, conformity is key. You have to fight or blend in with the drug-using inhabitants to survive.
The footage showcases the campaign from the perspective of Sally for the first time. She is the third playable character and each protagonist has their own perspective. Sally is more stealth-focused and relies on sneaking around and using syringes to take out enemies.
We Happy Few is scheduled to launch on August 10, 2018 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. The game started off as a crowdfunded project but the developer eventually decided to team up with Gearbox Publishing to increase the scope of the project. This means that We Happy Few will include a full-length story campaign, more playable characters, and hundreds of unique encounters. Hopefully it'll live up to expectations.
If you can't wait until August, be sure to check out the Xbox Game Preview version. While the download is still a little rough around the edges, it gives you a great taste of what you can expect in a few weeks.
