The microsoft press conference this morning not only gave us an extensive look at the new survival/horor game, We Happy Few but also gave us an early access release date.

We Happy Few will becoming to both Steams early access and Xbox Ones game preview program on July 26th.

The horror/survival game developed by Compulsion games takes place in an Orwellian style England where everyone is forced to take pills called “Joy”. You play a character who refuses to take his medication and is hunted by soceity as a “downer”, but you are the only one who can see the world as it really is.

You can check out the gameplay snippet from the conference below.

We Happy Few looks like it’s shaping up to be an interesting take on a very old concept and I can’t wait to get my hands on it in July.
