In this second piece of handcrafted Season Pass content, Wellington Wells’ most beloved rock star, Nick Lightbearer, returns for a brand-new drug-filled story. Heartthrob, artist, and personal trainwreck Nick Lightbearer is adored by legions of fans - but clearly not all seems well with Nick claiming his “purples” made him a monster. We’ll have to wait for launch to know what mystery awaits us and the rest of the Nick Lightbearer fandom.

 

This DLC is part of the We Happy Few Season Pass for $19.99 or individually for $7.99, found on Steam, GOG.com, the Microsoft Store, and the Official PlayStation® Store.

About We Happy Few

We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial in the city of Wellington Wells. In this alternative 1960s England, conformity is key. You’ll have to fight or blend in with the drug-addled inhabitants, most of whom don’t take kindly to people who won’t abide by their not-so-normal rules. Discover the retrofuturistic city’s dark history as you play through the intertwined narratives of three quietly rebellious citizens of Wellington Wells, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, as they face their pasts, prepare for the future, and engage in activities that aren’t exactly status quo in the artificially enthused society.
