Happy Wars prepares for summer launch on PC with closed beta next week

Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Happy Wars, the free-to-play, role-playing strategy game that launched on Xbox 360 last year, will come to Windows PC via Steam this summer, developer Toylogic announced yesterday.

A two-week, closed beta for the game's PC version will begin on Wednesday, Toylogic added. Applications to partcipate are being taken through the game's official site, but it is only open to residents of the United States or Canada. Participants will need both a Steam ID and a Microsoft account. They'll receive "Happy Tickets" usable in the full game when the beta is over.

The beta will not include in-game purchases or any paid content.

"The closed beta testing is an opportunity for participants to experience almost all of the game's features that are to be made available from the start of the official service," ToyLogic said, "including the online multiplayer matches with as many as 30 people per match, co-op and Single player modes, and the collecting and powering up of items."

A specific launch date for Happy Wars on PC was not given.

Happy Wars launched on Xbox Live in October 2012 and while free-to-play, an Xbox Live Gold subscription is required to play its multiplayer. (There is a single-player campaign mode that can be accessed with free Xbox Live accounts.)
