Gearbox Software to Publish We Happy Few on Consoles in 2018

For more on Compulsion Games' eerie adventure, which is getting a film adaptation, find out why, even though We Happy Few may look like BioShok, it's a very different beast.

Gearbox Publishing and Compulsion Games today announced they are at work on an expanded version of We Happy Few, which is expected to launch worldwide on April 13, 2018. Gearbox wants to expand on that by adding to the initial release version & bringing it to XBox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Players can get Early Access to the title right now on PC and Xbox One for $51.

An Amazon listing for We Happy Few for PS4 has surfaced, seemingly revealing the game will indeed be coming to the Sony system. We're longtime fans of Borderlands, and we're excited to be part of a line-up that also includes games like Homeworld and Fortnite.

Gearbox is touting the upcoming release of We Happy Few as much grander in scale that what was envisioned back when the game was first shown off during its Kickstarter days.

"Compulsion Games has an awesome game vision and it's an honor for Gearbox Publishing to continue the effort", said Steve Gibson, Head of Gearbox Publishing.

Those who do pre-order will also receive a little bonus, with a 15 percent discount off the general version of the game, as well as a special Jolly Brolly in-game parasol weapon. The final game will include a full storyline that will tell more of the tale behind this odd, paranoid little city, and put you in control of three different characters over the course of your adventure, though Compulsion didn't note just how they would be involved. With an improved UI, upgraded AI, new joy effects, "and more", the update marks the last feature pack Alpha testers will see ahead of the game's full launch, as Compulsion shifts development towards finishing the game. There will also be a Collector's Edition, priced at $149.99, full of We Happy Few-themed swag.

We Happy Few emerged a year ago on Xbox One as a timed exclusive, catching the eyes of gamers everywhere for its Bioshock-like creepy aesthetic, and intriguing premise.
