Microsoft, who is not all that good at adding free-to-play games to its Xbox Live service for Xbox 360 (there are only a couple at this point), is probably happy that it allowed the free-to-play and kid-friendly MOBA game Happy Wars to launch on the platform in October of last year. As of today the game has been downloaded over 2 million times, according to maker Toylogic. While the game is completely free to download and play, players can purchase "Happy tickets" with real money to upgrade equipment and buy vanity items. These same items can also be unlocked by earning "Happy Stars" through playing the game. Of course players need to have an Xbox Live Gold account in order to play.
The game had 1.2 million downloads in December.
Toylogic also said that it has recently released a major update to the game that adds a new special match mode that introduces new multiplayer rules, an increase in character customization slots from one to three, and an increase in the level cap from 10 to 15.
Happy Wars is a Capture the Castle style game where two teams (15 players on each team) made up of various classes battle to capture and defend points on the map leading up to one side taking over the castle of the other to win.
