What's up With We Happy Few Season Pass: Current Status, Working Titles and Plot Theories

The release date of new DLC content for We Happy Few is still to be confirmed, so we look at the expansions in development to see what we can expect from the upcoming return to Wellington Wells

Season Pass for Compulsion Games’ antiutopian first-person action was announced alongside free Sandbox mode back in August 2018, listing three stories: ‘’Roger & James in: They Came From Below!’’, ‘’Lightbearer’’, and ‘’We All Fall Down’’.

According to the developers, this is new content which was planned, but its development started only after the game release. Initially, it was said to be released on December 7, with the date changed to March 31. However, as the developers say, this is just a placeholder date, so the release might come even later.

Please note that there may be spoilers below.

What’s odd though is that according to Steam Database there are no DLCs of the listed names. Instead, we have ‘’House Boys’’, ‘’Nick Lightbearer’’ and, the last added, ‘’Victoria’’. These might as well be working titles, which will change later

The first to be added, on October 30, was ‘’House Boys’’, which is nothing like the announced DLCs. One possible explanation is that ‘‘House Boys’’ goes for ‘‘Roger & James in: They Came From Below!’’, where two characters are mentioned, lovers Roger Bacon and James Maxwell. In ‘’They Came From Below’’, Roger and James will presumably leave the city as the DLC announcement says they ‘’set off in search of adventure and love’’, during which the two lovers discover something terrifying.

In the main story, Roger and James are Dr. Faraday’s assistants and help Ollie Starkey get to the Parade District. They often wear a sailor uniform, which resembles the silhouette in the Season Pass cover

The developers shared in the recent update that ‘‘Roger & James in: They Came From Below!’’ is mostly content complete, and the expansion is now in the polishing stage. That said, we might soon discover if Roger and James are really those House Boys.

Another DLC, ‘‘Nick Lightbearer’’, is likely to be ‘‘Lightbearer’’, which is devoted to the supporting character met during ‘’The Church of Simon Says’’ quest.

The fading rock star fails to host the Simon Says game at St. Genesius Church and Arthur has to lead the game himself. It’s not stated, though, who we got to play in this expansion. Currently, this DLC is in full steam ahead in production

The third DLC, ‘’We All Fall Down’’, is in the pre-production phase and has something to do with raising ghosts of the past. Although there are no files of a similar name, it could be ‘’Victoria’’, which was added on January 29. Given the fact that one of the main characters is Victoria Byng, the DLC might probably revolve around her.

Victoria Byng is a major antagonist of the game who played a significant role in spreading Joy among the citizens of Wellington Wells. Besides, some fans suggest that ‘’We All Fall Down’’ could tell a story of some high-profile character becoming a Downer or, judging by the cover image, it might be someone living in the Village or the Parade district who gave up Joy

As for Sandbox mode, the developers say that it’s in the final stages of tweaking and QA, and will be available in one of the upcoming major patches.
