E3 2018: New ‘We Happy Few’ Story Trailer
  |  @   |  

A brand new story trailer has been released for We Happy Few, the trippy 1960s psychedelic horror that’s been intriguing us over the past few years with trailers and gameplay peeks.

The game has been available to play in early access for quite some time now, but it’s finally gearing up for an official release later this summer. You can read more about the game and check out the new trailer below.

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.

FEATURES

Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells. Each has their own strengths and weaknesses; they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in this artificially-enthused society.

RETROFUTURISTIC 1960S ENGLAND

Set in retrofuturistic 1960s England, you will find a city ravaged by war and rebuilt by delusionally happy people. Everything appears joyful in Wellington Wells, including its roads, its people, and its omnipresent television personality: Uncle Jack! But, it’s actually a world on the brink of collapse. Come unveil its dark history, and discover how and why its residents came to be so beguilingly happy.

THREE INTERWOVEN NARRATIVES

Play as three flawed characters who must contend with their own guilty pasts and connections to the mysteries surrounding Wellington Wells. Each has a unique storyline in which they interpret and react to the dramatic events around them. Hide, conform, or fight back as each of them encounters black comedy and dangerous hope as they try to make their way out of their city. Or play in Sandbox mode, and experience dozens of encounters with your very offbeat “” and very English “” fellow Wellies.

A DYSTOPIA OF YOUR VERY OWN

In We Happy Few, no two playthroughs are alike. While the citizens of Wellington Wells will always want to ensure that you’ve taken your Joy, the procedurally generated world will ensure that your experience with We Happy Few is different and unique. Wellington Wells is never quite like you remember it.

TAKE YOUR JOY … OR DON’T. THE CHOICE IS YOURS

Customize your We Happy Few experience:

  • Choose from a range of difficulties for new and experienced players alike
  • Play through the story, or make your own story by customizing the sandbox
  • Masochistic? Try permadeath!
  • Collect recipes, scavenge items, and craft dozens of weapons, tools, and devices
  • Creep, clash, or conform your way through puzzles and encounters
  • Fight with the crazy weapons you can craft, or fight with your bare hands and don’t kill anyone!

We Happy Few is set to be released on August 10th. You can pre-order either a Standard Edition (Xbox One, PlayStation 4), or a Deluxe Edition (PS4, Xbox One) now if interested.
