We Happy Few Finally Approved for Release in Australia

Australian gamers will be able to explore We Happy Few's dreary dystopian world

We Happy Few's use of drugs was the main reason for the previous ruling.

"A player that takes Joy can reduce gameplay difficulty, therefore receiving an incentive by progressing through the game quickly", the report read.

"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", Compulsion wrote in on its website. Last week, however, the Classification Board announced that it would reconsider the ruling, and today it revealed that the appeal has been successful. It'll be available for purchase in Australia after all.

Caught On Camera: Woman Fell Out Of Moving SUV
The man driving is seen calmly stopping his vehicle and dragging the woman back inside, then driving off as other drivers watch. The freaky incident was caught on camera around 4:12 p.m.at the intersection of 131st Avenue and 15th Street.

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

We Happy Few developer Compulsion Games also took to its own site to note that the game will be released unmodified in Australia - and that media and community attention played an important role in getting the refusal overturned. The people in the game are depicted as violent psychopaths due to their overuse of the drug, and all have basically lost their humanity.

No content had to be modified so We Happy Few could be released in Australia, so players in that region won't have to experience a neutered or censored version of the game. Now it just needs to live up to all the hype it's built over these past few years once it finally launches next month. We Happy Few will be rated R18+ in Australia.
