We Happy Few, a dystopian game where people live a life of lies by taking Joy pills, got a newtrailer as well as a release date at Microsoft's E3 conference today. Running on the Slipspace Engine and developed by 343, the scope looks huge with what seems to by a dynamic time cycle to be hinted at as well.
The new game will focus strongly on Master Chief and the Halo universe itself, with its main focus being on 'making the world a little bit more realistic and compelling'. Ninja Theory, Compulsion Games, Playground Games, and Undead Labs are now Microsoftstudios and therefore future games from them will be exclusive to Xbox.
"We will join Master Chief on his greatest adventure yet to save humanity", said Xbox chief Phil Spencer following the trailer.
Microsoft's Xbox division is laying the groundwork for a game streaming service that zaps games directly to any device, whether it be your console at home or your phone on-the-go. He boasted that the company's E3 lineup is its "most diverse gaming portfolio in every measure". But Microsoft is clearly trying to push its development potential further with the creation of another studio dubbed The Initiative.
Microsoft promised to have one of their biggest shows in history for E3 2018.
Given AMD now has a strong hold on the console market it's very likely the new Xbox consoles will be powered by enhanced Radeon graphics beyond Vega. The game will be released exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10.
Compulsion Games. As "We Happy Few" nears its full, multiplatform release on August 10, Microsoft has entered into a letter of intent to acquire Montreal-based Compulsion Games. And Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, its most recent success, was a PlayStation 4 timed console exclusive, although it eventually came out on Xbox One earlier this year. We've reached out to Microsoft for comment and will provide an update upon response. Xbox Game Pass will also feature a new FastStart system.
