With the release of We Happy Few only a few days away, developer Compulsion Games has shed light of what to expect from the drug-fueled dystopian survival title’s Season Pass and free post-launch content.
First up, we have the absolutely free Sandbox Mode, a revamped version of a similar mode previous forming part of the game’s early builds. In keeping with its name, the mode is akin to a creative playground for those wanting to experiment with customizing Wellington Wells.
Dubbed an ‘infinite mode’, players can tinker with the map’s size, make it more dangerous, reduce food drops to make it harder to survive, or up the amount of inhabitant ‘Wellies’. Compulsion explains ‘you will be able to customize some of the rules of the game, including choosing to play as a Wellie’. What mischief changing the rules entails, we don’t yet have any firm details.
As for the paid Season Pass DLC, Compulsion have lined up three stories taking place in the drug-addled streets of Wellington Wells:
‘Roger & James in: They Came From Below!
Precocious Roger and Impetuous James set off in search of adventure and love, only to uncover bizarre technology and a terrifying new threat. All is not as it seems. Or is it exactly as it seems?
Heartthrob, artist, and personal trainwreck, Nick Lightbearer is Wellington Wells’ most celebrated rock star—but what truly makes him tick? Tune in to Uncle Jack’s late show to find out.
We All Fall Down
Much like any well-worn happy mask, all societies develop cracks in their veneer. But that doesn’t mean you should go digging up dirt from the past. Right? *pops a Joy pill* Right!’
Currently, the Season Pass is only available for the owners of the Deluxe Edition of We Happy Few, though Compulsion Games are planning a separate DLC purchase feature at launch. The developer has not provided release dates for either the Sandbox Mode nor the Season Pass content at the current time.
After what feels like an interminable wait, We Happy Few finally launches this Friday August 10th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
