Complete Guide to We Happy Few Preorder Bonuses and Collector’s Edition

Get instant savings and an in-game weapon.

Almost three years since it first made a splash as a Kickstarter project, We Happy Few finally has a release date: August 10, 2018.

The game takes place in a “tranquil” alternate reality 1960s England, where the townsfolk of Wellington Wells have gone off their meds, literally. A government-mandated medication known in-game as “Joy” keeps everyone in an artificial state of subdued happiness. The game picks up when people begin to rebel against the forced medication, suffering violent and bizarre withdrawal symptoms.

Things go downhill from there.

Preorder Bonuses

In addition to some retailer-specific discounts not tied in to We Happy Few specifically (outlined below), gamers who preorder from most retailers recieve the Jolly Brolly in-game weapon included as a code in the game package itself. Preorder the We Happy Few Deluxe Edition or standard edition at GameStop or Best Buy and you instantly get $10 off either version of the game, as well as the Jolly Brolly in-game item.


We Happy Few Standard Edition

The standard edition is $59.99 and is coming to PS4 and Xbox One.

We Happy Few Deluxe Edition

The We Happy Few Deluxe Edition, which includes the base game and the season pass, costs $79.99. The season pass contains “three pieces of future content” for We Happy Few, each featuring one of “Wellington Wells’ most notorious residents.”

We Happy Few Time Capsule Collector’s Edition


This Time Capsule collector’s edition of We Happy Few ephemera isn’t yet available, and similar to the Red Dead Redemption 2 collector’s edition, it doesn’t include the game itself. This is increasingly common, as it saves the game publisher from having to guess at collector’s edition demand on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It does have a host of what look to be legitimately collectible items including the following:

  • Sticker set
  • Uncle Jack alarm clock
  • We Happy Few 150g vinyl soundtrack
  • 11-inch Bobby Mask
  • Handbook
  • Plexi Sign Lamp
  • 11 x 17-inch propaganda posters
