We Happy Few developer Compulsion Games also took to its own site to note that the game will be released unmodified in Australia - and that media and community attention played an important role in getting the refusal overturned. In some parts of the game, taking the drug reduces the difficulty and makes the game appear more colourful and vibrant.

Initially, the classification board argued that due to the reasons listed above, the game's systems incentivise drug use and therefore decided not to issue a rating.

We Happy Few is published by Borderlands studio Gearbox, which is the company that asked the Board to reconsider its ruling.

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.

China vows retaliation as trade war starts
Chinese exporters of tools, lighting and appliances say US orders have shrunk as customers wait to see what will happen to prices. The economic fundamentals mean a sharp depreciation of the yuan is unlikely, he said in an interview with the Financial News.

We went to a great deal of effort to get this decision overturned.

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. The drug use appears to have been the sticking point in the Board's original decision to refuse the game for classification.

As a result, the lack of a classification would have effectively kept the game from being sold. It will also officially launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on August 10. You can pre-purchase We Happy Few on the Microsoft Store for the Xbox One or the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 4. "Your involvement made a huge difference".

"We Happy Few" is an upcoming first-person survival adventure game that explores the dystopian city of Wellington Wells. PC Players can add the game to their Steam wishlist.
