Microsoft revealed at their E3 press briefing that We Happy Few from Compulsion Games will hit the Xbox One via the Game Preview program on July 26. Set in an alternative dystopian England during the 1960s, We Happy Few is described as a drug-fuelled action-adventure game about paranoia and suspicion.
The game’s opening sequence was demoed at the briefing and showed main character Arthur Hastings who suddenly decides to go off state-encouraged happy pills. Unfortunately for Arthur “Downers” are frowned upon in Wellington Wells and players will have to blend in with its other citizens who don’t take kindly to those who don’t abide by their not-so-normal rules. If you missed the briefing you can check out the full play through below.
