It took a little longer than expected (a glitch kept the game invisible most of the day), but Happy Wars has finally been added to the Xbox Live Arcade today. The Xbox 360’s first free-to-play game is now available to download for all Xbox Live Gold subscribers (so it’s not technically free). Pitting teams of 15 happy little characters against each another, Happy Wars looks to be the cutest melee ever.
To celebrate the release of the game, Microsoft has slashed the price of all items in the Item Shop by 20%. So if you plan on dropping a few coins on customizable outfits or weaponry, doing it before October 15 will keep a few of those coins in your pocket. Of course, new outfits can also be unlocked in-game for those that prefer to keep the “free” in their free-to-play game.
Hope to see you on the battlefield this weekend:
Happy Wars is a multiplayer action game that pits different comic-style characters against each other in over-the-top combat arenas. Taking place in a variety of fantasy battlefields including grasslands, a dark world, and the ocean floor, players can control any of 3 types of characters: warrior, mage, and cleric.
