We Happy Few gets approved for Australia

We Happy Few originally ran aground on Aussie shores due to its use of drugs, which in certain portions of the game can help the player progress. At the time, developer Compulsion Games said it was upset and frustrated by the decision, adding that it planned to work with the classification board to have the decision overturned.

We went to a great deal of effort to get this decision overturned. Now that decision has been successfully appealed by Compulsion Games, and We Happy Few is no longer banned in Australia. It will also officially launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 10.

Previously, by denying a classification for the game, it was just as good as banned for sale in the country, as all games must carry a certification if they're going to be up for sale. The player controls one of these downers, but they can also take small quantities of Joy to better blend in with the crowd and avoid suspicion.

Idris Elba to join the Fast & Furious series
Jason and Dwayne will reprise their roles of criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw and special agent Luke Hobbs respectively. David Leitch , director of Deadpool 2 (and stuntman in nearly a hundred different movies), has been confirmed as well.

Great news, all around!

We Happy Few's use of drugs was the main reason for the previous ruling.

Regardless, We Happy Few fans in Australia will likely be pleased that the game's ban has been reversed and it will release in their region uncensored. "Your involvement made a huge difference". It's seen games like Saints Row IV refused classification for its big purple dildo, Hotline Miami 2 for its depiction of sexual violence, The Witcher 2 for a quest in which you could accept sex as a reward, and on and on. We Happy Few will be rated R18+ in Australia. He added that the studio could have done more to make sure it provided the right context for the drug-related scenarios in the game when submitting it for classification.
