We Happy Few received some ample stage time at Microsoft’s E3 conference following developer Compulsion Games’s acquisition by Microsoft Studios.
Following that news, which also included the revelation that Microsoft acquired four other studios, the project received a new, story-focused trailer. Previous trailers have mostly centred around gameplay and concept, but the new trailer, embedded below, has a strong story focus.
Judging by the trailer, the main story will centre around the protagonist and his partner as they grapple with the sociological, social, and moral implications of happiness-inducing medication. The project, which may have become an Microsoft-exclusive, launches on August 10.
