We Happy Few is no longer banned in Australia

We Happy Few is no longer banned in Australia”

We Happy Few launches for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on August 10, 2018. We are the happy few now. More specifically, the way drug use in the game is tied to "incentives and rewards".

"After considering our appeal to get We Happy Few reviewed for classification, the Australian Classification Review Board has made a decision to allow the release of We Happy Few in Australia", Compulsion wrote in on its website. If We Happy Few hadn't been classified, Compulsion would've offered refunds. In We Happy Few's Britain, people take "Joy", a catch-all drug to enforce happiness akin to Soma, the narcotic seen in Aldous Huxley's popular literary dystopia Brave New World. In the game's dystopian version of Britain, you're encouraged to take a hallucinogenic drug called "Joy", making the tiresome and drab world of misery look like it's all happy and full of fun, like a piñata to whack until candies pop out actually being a large rat in a bag.

In a statement released by Fiona Jolly, convenor of the Classification Review Board, the decision was made clear. The drug use appears to have been the sticking point in the Board's original decision to refuse the game for classification.

We Happy Few is now available on PC and Xbox One via Early Access and Xbox Game Preview respectively, and will officially launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on August 10. "The overall impact of the classifiable elements in the computer game was no greater than high". Now, with the decision to award an R 18+ classification, "We Happy Few" can be sold in-stores.
