We Happy Few, a game about taking forced happiness drugs in 1960's alternate England to avoid the horrors of a dystopia, was set to leave Steam Early Access and release in full on April 13th 2018.

The multiplayer survival adventure game is coming to Steam's full marketplace for Windows PC on February 8, 2018. He extends his thanks to his team, to the Rust community, to everyone who took a risk and purchased the game while it was in Early Access. "It's business as usual". Giving prospective players a warning about the price increase is apparently one of the main reasons they're even announcing the news rather than just quietly dropping the Early Access label. "Think of this as us saying that if Early Access didn't exist we'd have released the game on Steam by now".

The studio plans to shift toward a monthly update cadence for the sake of stability.

"Don't think of this as us claiming that the game is done", said Newman. There will also be a different version of Rust available, similar to a public test server, which will be updated daily but may not be as stable. But it's the end of an era now, since Rust is scheduled for a standard release on February 8. "Please try not to compare the game to some other finished game or some idealized version you have in your head".

The most important change by far is that the price is going up. "This is one of the main reasons we've made a decision to post this blog rather than quietly slipping out of Early Access, we felt like this is something you'll all want to be warned about". Thanks to all the people that have reported cheaters, given us access to private cheats or pointed out exploits in our code. "It hasn't always been the most stable, optimized, balanced experience-but we hope you don't feel like we've let you down".
