Compulsion Games announced today that thanks to the newly released Maidenholm Update, players can now enjoy We Happy Few without having to deal with its survival mechanics. This new update adds three different playstyles, Birdwatcher, Downer and Vigilante, as well as a brand new island area. Gamers can now adjust the action’s difficulty with these new playstyles, or, in the case of the Birdwatcher style, experience a version of We Happy Few geared towards people who don’t enjoy survival titles.
Aside from the improvements described above, the Maidenholm update also adds support for multiple save slots, new encounters, procedural music implementation and support for distinct regions within the Garden District. Both GOG and Steam owners of We Happy Few can download the update as of today, while Xbox One players will have to wait until an unspecified date.
Set in an alternate history England during the 1960s, We Happy Few is the tale of slightly terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. To find your way out of Wellington Wells and reconstruct the past, you’ll have to blend in with its other citizens, who don’t take kindly to those who don’t abide by their not-so-normal rules.
