We Happy Few: Default Controls & How to Change Them


We Happy Few was recently released out of Early Access on PC. With it came a lot of controls and bindings that you need to use in game.

Whilst you can see the list of controls in the game menu yourself, we have decided to list them below for quick viewing. These controls are for the PC version of the game. Players on Xbox One and PS4 can likely see the controls themselves in the game settings for their controller.
