We Happy Few no longer banned in Australia, gains R18+ rating

Australia has firm restrictions on representation of drug use in media and We Happy Few's dystopian world didn't quite meet them at all times.

If you're interested in We Happy Few then you should check out our preview of it!

Compulsion Games upcoming drug-tinged project We Happy Few has been granted release in Australia.

Australia turned the thumbs-down on We Happy Few in May, citing the game's incentivized drug use-players take a faux-narcotic called "Joy" in order to blend in with society and avoid being murdered-as too far over the line for approval.

Micron Chip Sales Banned In China
UMC, a contract chip manufacturer, plans to list its China operations on the Shanghai Stock Exchange. In fact, Micron derived half of its fiscal 2017 net sales from the country.

More details will be published on the Classification Review Board decisions page once it's been properly prepared. As part of the game's narrative, ordinary citizens take Joy to suppress their bad memories, but prolonged use of the drug also shuts off their moral inhibitors, turning them into sociopathic Joy-slaves who would happily kill anyone they perceive as "downers" (i.e. those who refuse to take Joy).

We Happy Few will release worldwide on 10 August 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

What do you think of Compulsion Games & Gearbox Publishing successfully appealing the ban of We Happy Few in Australia? The people in the game are depicted as violent psychopaths due to their overuse of the drug, and all have basically lost their humanity.

Luckily, it seems that the board agrees after a "three-member panel Classification Review Board has unanimously determined that the computer game We Happy Few is classified R 18+ (Restricted)".
