We Happy Few now supports Xbox Play Anywhere

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.

Yesterday, the game launched on Xbox One with the promise of Xbox Play Anywhere support. However, many gamers noticed that the feature wasn't available, and they couldn't download the game to their Windows 10 computers. Luckily, it seems like this situation has been remedied because now many We Happy Few owners are saying that it's popping up on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. We were able to test it out and can confirm We Happy Few is indeed playable on a PC and Xbox One through the Xbox Play Anywhere program.

This means that you only have to buy the game once on Xbox One, and can play it on the go with a Windows 10 machine. Your saved game carries over. When you're back home, you can always pick up where you left off on your Xbox One. We would recommend experiencing We Happy Few on Xbox One X because it runs at native 4K resolution on the console.

Even though Compulsion Games is now part of Microsoft Studios, the deal with Gearbox Publishing — before the acquisition — allowed them to release the game on PlayStation 4.
