Xbox One owners who happen to be fans of the Toylogic’s Happy Wars had the misfortune of enduring a bittersweet occurrence last night. The Xbox One version of Happy Wars accidentally went up on the Xbox Marketplace for download. It sounds great, but there was a price to pay for anyone who played.
The X1 version of Happy Wars was quickly removed from the Marketplace when the error was noticed. However, it was not removed expediently enough to avoid some vigilant gamers from downloading the title. Unfortunately for said gamers, there is an error which locks you out of playing the Xbox 360 version if you’ve played it on Xbox One.
It seems silly, right? You’re probably asking “why would you want to go back a generation?” The answer is that Happy Wars shines brightest when you’re playing multiplayer with your friends. To further explain, if you were “lucky” enough to be looking at the Marketplace when the flub-up occurred, you got access to the X1 version, however your friends might not have. If you’re looking to play with your buddies in this situation, you’re just out of luck (for the moment).
Toylogic is proving their worth as this issue has not gone unnoticed. Toylogic addressed their fans via Facebook late last night. They revealed that a fix for this issue is planned to be included in the next title update for the 360 version of Happy Wars. No worries fans, you shouldn’t be separated from your friends for too long.
That’s kind of rough. I’m sure a lot of the people who jumped on the new version of Happy Wars thought that they were getting a special treat. All mistakes and accidental releases aside, good on Toylogic for addressing the community in a timely manner and apologizing. Sometimes the best thing a company can really do when they mess up in this manner is say they’re sorry and that they plan to remedy the issue ASAP.
