We Happy Few 1.3 - Hotfix


Platform specific versions:


Windows: 1.3.70168

PS4: 1.3.70168

Xbox: 1.3.70173


Patch Summary


The first post-launch binary patch for We Happy Few addresses progression blockers, limited performance issues and crashes.  A larger content update will be available soon, addressing performance optimization and other issues.


All Platforms


  • Sometimes, the “Rise” prompt was not shown when your character respawns sitting on a bench. Now it will be.
  • In rare cases, the keys required to complete the I Sing Body Electric and Ex Cathedra encounters would not spawn. This occurred when the player was spawned too close to the NPC when loading a saved game in a very specific situation.  This issue is resolved for all new players, and players with saves currently experiencing this issue have been given the keys to continue their progression.
  • Using a bobby whistle in a crowd of Wastrels will no longer freeze the game.
  • Fix crash in physics simulation.
  • Fix crash on exit (crash when quitting the game).
  • Fix crash in media framework (returning to the main menu very quickly after saving).
  • Fix crash when applying some status effects.
  • Fix memory leak in status effects. May result in minor performance improvement by reducing HUD performance impact over time.
  • To help with debugging rare world generation issues, the player’s world seed has been added to the pause menu next to the build number.
  • Version number increased to 1.3.


PC only


  • Changing anti-aliasing options had no noticeable effect. These options are now correctly wired into the graphics settings.
