Over the weekend, Happy Wars was released for everyone with Gold Membership to Xbox LIVE. If you had registered for the private dashboard beta, you could have been playing this game for a while now, which is where I got a chance to play it. Look forward for a full review coming!
Happy Wars is a 15v15 MOBA style game, and what makes it different than every other game out there on Xbox Live arcade is that this is FREE. But lets be honest, free + Microsoft is NEVER really free. Truth be told, this has micro-transactions all over it, from paying to win, to paying for cosmetics. We’ll take a look at this a bit more during the review, but for now, go download it, and check it out for yourself. Trailer after the press release.
