Complusions Games’ dystopian survival We Happy Few was denied classification by the Australian Classification Board for the portrayal of drug use in the game. This meant that the game would not be allowed to be sold anywhere in the country.

Following the Classification Board’s announcement that the game wouldn’t be rated in the country, the decision was appealed by publisher Gearbox. The board responded to the appeal on June 26 to say that the decision would be revisited again on July 3. As per reaching the date, the Classification Board published a new media release to say that an R 18+ rating would be applied to the game.
The board stated that “A three-member panel of the Classification Review Board has unanimously determined that the computer game We Happy Few is classified R 18+ (Restricted) with the consumer advice ‘Fantasy violence and interactive drug use'”.
In a short statement released on its website, Compulsion said, “We are extremely pleased with the decision of the board and excited that our Australian fans and new players will be able to experience We Happy Few without modification.”

We Happy Few comes to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 10th.
