This article will discuss tips for playing we happy few, which were mentioned in several trailers we have watched so far, and will also take a look at some of the things you can look out for during your playthrough.
When you first start the game, you are immediately thrust into the action. You must either escape a lab after waking up in your green box, or you must convince the scientists to take you in and train you to take control over the world of Wellington Wells.
You’re on your own, and once in the lab, you have to work your way up to the High Five, an elite group of scientists who work for the Colonel. It will be a race against time to prove that you are human and to escape the clutches of the faceless members of the oppressive Established Society who want to end all your joys.
If you die in any way in the game, you will lose all of your stash of money and clothes, and your health will also decrease. The one perk that allows you to gain back some of your health is that you are a lot faster when you run and jump, and we also get the one powerful perk that lets you absorb ammo from other survivors who are already using it.
We Happy Few is available on PS4 and Xbox One for free with the All-Ages section of the PlayStation Store (and All-Ages games for PC in the Xbox Store) until November 21.
If you own either of these consoles, this is your free early-access game, and you should play it!
Even if you’re not getting this game to show your gamerpic, play the game to show off your art style. It’s really awesome!
3. Be patient with caretaker
One of the most irritating elements of the game is the caretaker, Thomas. It’s super annoying and insulting and smelly.
Be patient with him because, as the game’s trailer said, “he’s happy now.” So, I think he just forgot how it felt when people took it out on him for no reason.
I get it.
4. If you really want a better weapon, put yourself down
This is the advice most on this list. Basically, if you want to win the game by finding better guns and armor, get a big nametag like the chief (the guy at the video center) in the previous advice.
Also, if you want to deal with your more sensitive side and behave more like a four-year-old, walk around and say things like, “I hope I can get one that’s more light-hearted.”
We happy few get one of the perks of being immortal: when you die, you move to the next area of the Multiverse. The multiverse is basically this big magical wormhole that moves you to the next area.
I thought it was bullshit when I first heard about this because it’s just a load of space or something. But it’s not; it’s not space at all. It’s a multiverse, which is a multiverse filled with differing realities.
I don’t know. They’re all like the first step in the future.
6. Reset your gaming system
That’s how you reset your console. Go to your console settings, pick “Restore All Documents,” and then sit back and watch as the console resets itself to the last level.
This is also a really great time to recover games that you’ve sold to others. Your new bestie can save these games to his or her phone.
And if you don’t have a friend with an Xbox, reset the console and transfer your games to your computer.
7. Patch your PC
If you have a PC, you can use the PatchMyPC program to download a free update that includes an auto-save feature so you can save your game.
I know it sounds like a little thing, but when your game is kind of, you know, dying, you never know when you’re going to run out of health, and you want to see what’s going to happen next.
8. Own more badass themes for the headgear
The game gives you headgear that will unlock your character’s eyes and give you a face.
You don’t have to get every headgear in the game, but you should definitely get some because it’s beautiful.
9. Make a new account, of course
They keep making you create a new account if you’re logging into one game to play another. And I’m still not sure if you need a new account for the platform.
But, if you do, make sure you save your friends list and your game progress in your old profile so you can bring it with you to the new account and the new game.
The game’s shoes are really cool, but if you’re not a cross-dresser like me, there’s not a ton of variety in the shoes.
Go shopping for some cool shoes that aren’t in the game for your new guy.
11. Hang out in another video game’s world
If you’re on PC, you can go to your friends list and find their friends list. If you’re on Xbox, you can go to Xbox Live and click on “Find Friends.” You can find your friends list on the other platforms by going to the settings and checking the box for “See Friends.”
I mean, it’s a World of Warcraft kind of world, so you know there will be a lot of people playing.
Do you have a better plan for getting through Hearthstone? What’s your best tip? Could you share them in the comments?
If you can’t figure out a particular puzzle, or get frustrated and quit for the day, try returning tomorrow. Come back the next day, and you might find your path to understanding much easier.
Don’t be afraid to change your build. You can change your build (costume) to combat a specific problem. I was fighting spiders with a mask of Doom, which was really effective at getting the numbers up.
The solution: I spent 10k essence of trouble and got a secret weapon (which raised my Level). Not only did I use it, but I used it over and over and over.
Over 10 levels of trouble. Once the Soul Sickness came, it didn’t matter that the Spider Misery was much less effective because I was already doing poorly against the vermin.
I built it with a goal in mind, and it worked.
