We Happy Few Coming to Xbox Game Preview

Compulsion Games came onto the stage at Microsoft’s E3 press conference to show of We Happy Few along with a date for its arrival on Xbox Game Preview.

I’ve been interested in We Happy Few for awhile and at Microsoft’s E3 press conference Compulsion Games, known for Contrast, revealed it will come to Xbox Game Preview on July 26th.

We Happy Few

Visually similar to Bioshock, We Happy Few is set in a world where people consume a drug called Joy. Except, as shown in the gameplay footage at the press conference, the player seems to play a character who decides to stop taking Joy and become a “Downer”. It will be a first-person survival game with some very dark undertones as shown at the conference.

The full release date is still yet to be announced, and any release, Early Access or otherwise, for PC and PS4 is as yet unknown.

Check out the trailer below:

For Jack, it all started with the PS1. After years spent playing against AI, video games moved online, so Jack did too. As the industry grew, he followed, treating himself to a diverse array of genres. Now enjoying well-written RPGs the most, he looks for stories he can engross himself in. Unfortunately, they are hard to find in video games. Eventually his love/hate relationship with gaming drew him to write about the industry he is passionate about. When he's not gaming, you'll most likely find Jack watching films.
