We Happy Few Gets a Release Date, Now Coming to PlayStation 4
We Happy Few Being Published by Gearbox, Gains a Release Date
Dystopian survival-horror game We Happy Few has a release date and a new partnership with Gearbox Publishing.
Developed by Compulsion Games, the game previously announced for Xbox One and PC will now also be coming to PlayStation 4 with a simultaneous launch date of April 13th, 2018.
Due to the studio’s involvement with Gearbox, the game is apparently going slightly more ambitious with a full single-player campaign “played as three different characters and more than 250 unique encounters.” (Via IGN)
Each character will have their own backstory and benefits.
A collector’s edition of the game has also being announced which doesn’t feature the game but includes various 60s inspired items, a vinyl copy of the soundtrack, a Bobby mask and more for $150.
Players who pre-order We Happy Few will gain bonuses depending on where they made their purchase. Those who pre-order on the PlayStation store gain a theme while those pre-ordering on Windows 10, Microsoft Store, Steam, GOG.com or Humble Store get access to an alpha version of the game later this year.
Those who already own the game in early access will automatically get full access to the game in April at no extra cost and the game will be available physically and digitally.
The game was announced to make its console debut on Xbox One as part of the Game Preview early access initiative at Microsoft’s 2015 Gamescom conference but the game had previously been on Kickstarter too.
There are already plans to adapt the dark first-person game into a film with Gold Circle Films announcing their plans in March 2017.
