We Happy Few Finally Coming To Australia After Approval

‘We Happy Few’ Australian Rating Ban Overturned Upon Review

You can pre-purchase We Happy Few on the Microsoft Store for the Xbox One or the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 4.

"We Happy Few" is an upcoming first-person survival adventure game that explores the dystopian city of Wellington Wells.

Compulsion Games wrote in a blog post, "After considering our appeal to get We Happy Few reviewed for classification, the Australian Classification Review Board has chose to allow the release of We Happy Few in Australia!"

We Happy Few was one of those games that was initially banned because of what the ACRB took to be positive incentives of drug taking.

While this does technically "reward" players for using the drug, We Happy Few actually seems to have a message of anti-drug use. In its original ruling, the Board specifically mentioned the in-game drug, Joy, which players take throughout the game.

The rating was awarded with additional consumer advice in the form of warnings that it does contain "fantasy violence and interactive drug use".

In a statement released by Fiona Jolly, convenor of the Classification Review Board, the decision was made clear.

Compulsion Games announced on their official website that their video game was denied by the Australian Classification Review Board in May. "We Happy Few is classified R18+ (restricted)".

We Happy Few is published by Borderlands studio Gearbox, which is the company that asked the Board to reconsider its ruling. The people in the game are depicted as violent psychopaths due to their overuse of the drug, and all have basically lost their humanity.
