The one year anniversary of the release of Happy Wars
, the free-to-play XBLA title, passed earlier this week. However, as we detailed previously
, ToyLogic is having an extended birthday celebration for the game taking in the entirety of October.
As we confirmed before, there is a plethora of updates and changes for Happy Wars
as a result and more details have now been revealed. The biggest development is the introduction of an Engineer in the Cleric character type. The Engineer "specialises in construction, upgrading cannon and ballista materials to construct rocket launchers and Gatling guns, skillfully repairing castle gates, and so on", and uses a special weapon to cause massive amounts of damage to enemies. The Engineer can be unlocked by completing three special quests, or alternatively by simply redeeming Happy Tickets. The brand-new character follows The Zephyr after it was introduced
