we happy few may release in the beta branch for linux and steamos

We Happy Few first person open world survival has some Linux news. Which is a small update since the last post for the release.

Below is the Twitter post for the native release. So it looks like there is a native build. Which now including all the recent content for the game.

Linux Beta Branch release:

When can we expect a Linux build?

“No timing yet, as it depends a great deal on patch QA.”

So the Beta Branch idea is definitely a good sign. Also the best solution to get Linux gamers into the game and testing. Since this is an Unreal Engine 4 title after. Which could be following the same practice for native port as Ruiner and Everspace.

Personally I’ve been playing We Happy Few for a while now. But the lack of Linux support keeps me holding back on posting gameplay. Even though Proton is plan B here. But with all of the recent updates and a solid native release now much closer. I’ll wait.

We Happy Few – Launch Trailer (Linux, Mac, Windows)

We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. Set in a drug-fueled, retro-futuristic city in an alternative 1960’s England. Where a government-imposed, drug-induced happiness masks with gruesome violence and conceals a nefarious mystery. So as that one resident, free of the drug’s effects, you risk you life to learn why his home is a bizarre open-air prison.

We Happy Few is currently available on Steam, GOG and Humble Store priced at $59.99 USD. Supporting Windows, but Linux support is now much closer to finally getting a release.
