The first DLC for Compulsion Game’s We Happy Few is out today, April 4th!
This DLC (and the following two) are part of the We Happy Few Season Pass, or can be purchased individually on Steam, GOG.com, the Microsoft Store, and the Official PlayStation® Store.
The first We Happy Few DLC, They Came From Below is launching on April 4, 2019!
In the first piece of handcrafted Season Pass content They Came From Below, NPCs James and Roger return in an all-new We Happy Few story.
Wellington Wells stands besieged by a robot uprising, but the mechanized menace isn’t the only thing threatening to tear the pair apart. Play as Roger and team up with your boyfriend James to Find Dr. Faraday, explore a vast underground laboratory, and discover the source of the robot invaders before it’s too late!
Arcade Mode is a free game update for We Happy Few which contains not two, but three new modes that will showcase a different part of the We Happy Few experience: Survival, Night’s Watch and Sandbox.
Survival is a return to the Early Access survival experience. As its name suggests, Survival mode is all about surviving in a harsh and unforgiving world, and is designed for those of you who enjoyed the survival experience in the past. You will need to hunt for food, water and shelter, and you’ll need to use all of the stealth, crafting, and combat skills at your disposal to last as long as you can in Wellington Wells. Scoring is based on survival time but to keep things mysterious and exciting, there is also a way to escape the island.
The Night Watch
Have you ever wondered how it would feel to give a jolly good thrashing to those pesky Downers? In The Night Watch (formally called Wellie Mode), we bring to life one of the most requested characters by the community, allowing you to play as the most notorious Bobby, Constable Constable. As a constable, and a man of high duty, you’ll need to keep all the filthy Downers out of town through fast paced combat while making sure you do not run out of Joy. Each night will become increasingly harder as hordes of Downers start pouring around town. Upgrade your weapons, take your Joy and keep the streets Downer free! All with a great big smile on your face.
Sandbox is a non-narrative/non-goal based game mode, which allows you to experiment with our world generation systems and gameplay options. This isn’t a skill based mode rather than a calmer experience, designed for players who want the freedom to create their own version Wellington Wells. So, if you’d like to pile 50 corpses in a bathtub, or see a very unusual procedurally generated world, this might be for you. With a whole arsenal of cheats at your disposal, chaos in this mode knows no bounds.
Update 1.7 and other stuff
Update 1.7 will drop on Monday March 25th for Steam, UWP, PS4 and Xbox One.
Along with Arcade Mode, Update 1.7 will contain an array of bug fixes and improvements for We Happy Few.
Along with these additions and fixes, Update 1.7 also includes the infrastructure (eg the menu option) that we need to deliver the Season Pass DLC. We’re very close now to talking more about the first DLC. Stay tuned for more info soon!

Wakey wakey, everyone! It’s a lovely day to announce the launch of We Happy Few: Uncle Jack Live VR!

As the newest member of Uncle Jack’s production team, you’ll assist Wellington Wells’ media darling to create an appropriate broadcast for the citizens of Wellington Wells by choosing articles for him to read on-air. But that’s not your only concern – a Downer outbreak will develop throughout the studio, meaning you’ll have to simultaneously find a way to get them back on their Joy – after all, the show must go on!
Outside of the broadcast, Uncle Jack Live VR also includes a positively smashing media archive of Uncle Jack episodes, soundtrack selections, trailers, and more! Explore the past and present of We Happy Few, all in a cozy VR setting.

We’re thrilled to share the first details about We Happy Few‘s post-launch content!
This free update will add an infinite mode, set in a world that you can customize as you wish (larger, smaller, more dangerous, less food, more Wellies, etc). You will be able to customize some of the rules of the game, including choosing to play as a Wellie (Wellie Mode!). This mode will bring back the systemic, sandbox world showcased in the early days of We Happy Few.
Also in the works is the We Happy Few Season Pass! Included in the We Happy Few Deluxe Edition, the Season Pass includes three different stories set in 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!
The Season Pass is currently only available as part of We Happy Few Deluxe Edition, but will be available for purchase separately upon launch.
