Originally thought as an Xbox One exclusive, Compulsion Games’ "We Happy Few" is finally confirmed to make its way to the PlayStation 4 this April 13, 2018 and will be published by Gearbox Software for $59.99!
The press release gives us the official synopsis of We Happy Few.
About We Happy Few
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 alternative 1960s England, conformity is key. You’ll have to fight or blend in with the drug-addled inhabitants, most of whom don’t take kindly to people who won’t abide by their not-so-normal rules. Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, as they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in the artificially enthused society.
The launch of We Happy Few will feature a full-length story campaign where you can play as three different characters (each with their own particular strengths and own "dark secrets"), and more than 250 unique encounters.
We Happy Few will see both a digital and physical release, and will even get a "Collector’s Set" which will be priced at $149.99 and contain a plethora of ’60s inspired stuff. However, this Collector’s Set will NOT include a copy of the game.
For those who’ve already decided to get it, pre-ordering it will net you a 15 percent off for the total price, plus the in-game Jolly Brolly parasol weapon, and an exclusive We Happy Few PS4 dynamic theme! You can check out more info of We Happy Few and as well as a video for the dynamic theme over on the PlayStation Blog.
