Not too long ago, the developer Compulsion Games successfully appealed the Australian Classification Review Board’s decision to ban We Happy Few in Australia, meaning that the forthcoming action-adventure title will release in the region unedited. Following this victory, the studio and the game’s publisher Gearbox Publishing have decided to give fans a better look at the vibrant, dystopian world of Wellington Wells with a brand new trailer.
As seen in below in the latest trailer for We Happy Few, potential players of the game are introduced to the concept of “The ABCs of Happiness”, which is to “Always Be Cheerful”. Considering the situations the main character is put into, though, such a disposition would be quite difficult to maintain, as the footage highlights a tyrannically-controlled world that imposes harsh repercussions for anyone who does not take their mandated dose of the medicine called “Joy”.
As far as We Happy Few‘s gameplay is concerned, the latest trailer offers a few looks and details at how players will be able to gather resources to craft various types of weaponry such as a explosives, electric pipes, and even nail-spiked cricket bats with reinforced metal plates. Compulsion Games’ latest trailer for the first-person title also shows off different scenes of stealth-action, how one can program certain environmental hazards to work in their favor, and more.
Taking everything shown off in the latest We Happy Few trailer into consideration, it looks as if Compulsion Games has put in loads of work ever since the title was released as a Steam Early Access title about a couple of years ago. As a matter of fact, the project grew to become something more than its original design, as it was once planned to be a 1-hour repeatable experience is now a 20 hour-long, narrative-driven game. So, it will be interesting to see how the public reacts to the changes and overall experience once We Happy Few comes out next month.
We Happy Few is scheduled to launch on August 10, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
