The Xbox One version of the free-to-play action-strategy game Happy Wars is now officially released. The game, from developer Toylogic, was briefly made available for public download accidentally a couple of weeks ago.
Players of the older Xbox 360 edition who downloaded and installed the leaked Xbox One version found that Happy Wars would no longer play on their Xbox 360 machine. That should not be the case for this official Xbox One launch. Toylogic says:
"The Xbox One version of Happy Wars boasts a major renewal of the UI along with various other game element changes. We've added features that take advantage of the power of Xbox One to give you a brand new Happy Wars experience. The main features of Happy Wars for Xbox One are the upgraded visual quality, split-screen gameplay support, and sharing of saved data with the Xbox 360 version. Visually, we think you will be very pleased with the Xbox One-powered high-quality graphics"
"Split-screen play permits up to 4 players to enjoy Happy Wars together on the same Xbox One console. This is ideal for sharing Happy Wars fun with family and friends! Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions share the same saved game data. Users who play the Xbox 360 version of Happy Wars will not need to create new saved data -- as long as you use the same account, you can play using the same data even on the Xbox One version."
From now until May 6, Toylogic is running a special in-game promotion for Happy Wars that will give players 20 Happy Tickets, along with a "Buff Pincer", which is "used to remove a buff from an item, but without destroying the original item" and a Mountaineer Backpack accessory.
