You remember Happy Wars, right? The Xbox 360 title that allows you to roam around and hack your friends to bits? Well, there’s going to be an Xbox One version and Playlogic accidentally released it to some regions yesterday.
It’s been removed from the marketplace now but the problem that this has caused is that anyone who downloaded it, played it and subsequently wants to go back to the 360 version, can’t. One of the things that Playlogic haven’t mastered yet would appear to be cross-platform game saves.
Playlogic have released an apology via the Happy Wars Facebook page here.
In short, this apology explains the issue and how they will rectify it, when the next 360 title update for the game is released.
The developer has a few weeks to rectify any lingering issues they have with the Xbox One version, the rumoured release date is the 24th of April, although, whether they stick to this, is yet to be seen.
The fifth title update for Happy Wars from Toylogic is now live on the Xbox LIVE Arcade and brings together the collaboration between Happy Wars and Castle Crashers. With the latest update, players can dress their characters in gear normally reserved for Blue Knight and Barbarian and in addition to this new line of gear, the title update introduces a new game mode “Extreme Style Match”.
The Happy Wars Title Update 5 includes:
- Collaboration Items with Castle Crashers
- Items normally worn by Blue Knight and Barbarian, two characters popular among Castle Crashers fans, will be appearing in Happy Wars.
- These special items will be offered as rewards to players who play the new game mode, “Extreme Style Match”.
- Players are guaranteed to earn one of Barbarian’s gear, as long as they have unlocked any of the achievements for Castle Crashers.
The Extreme Style Match Game Mode is where everything stays the same, except for just one element: the game balance which has been described as “off-the-wall EXTREME”. Everything will look the same, but feel completely different. Furthermore, this game mode offers reward items for players who play it.
