What you need to know

  • We Happy Few is a first-person adventure set in a dystopian England.
  • The game is getting an expansion called "Lightbearer" that focuses on a crazed rock star.

  • You can purchase an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription on Amazon.

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 alternate England, conformity is key. You have to fight or blend in with the drug-using inhabitants to survive.

The game has received a number of updates and additional content in the past, but the latest chapter might be the best. Today, the "Lightbearer" expansion was revealed for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. Just like the base game, the expansion runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X. Luckily, the wait won't be too long because it's launching on July 30.

If you bought the season pass, you'll be happy to know that Lightbearer is part of it. The plot focuses on Wellington Wells' most beloved rock star, Nick Lightbearer, as he returns for a brand-new drug-filled story.
